If you're not using the betas of gimp-print 5.0 (now called gutenprint),
you need to. The color handling in the new version is _vastly_ improved,
and the output quality is stunning.
There is an OSS tool called Argyll that can be used to mess with color
profiles and feed them to gimp/gutenprint; there is also a new tool in
beta testing called PhotoPrint that is much simpler than the GIMP for
just printing (you can find references to it in the recent archives of
the gimp-print-devel list).
