I need to dump the GIMP printer drivers!  I tried gutenprint-unistaller-1.2.9 several times, and it is still controlling the printer.  I can't seem to get rid of it!.  Any idea of how to dump this Apple add on for good?

    In System Preferences>Fax & Print, Right click or Control+click on the Printers list Sidebar, choose Reset Printing System.

    if you hold option and click the "-" tab it resets the printing system.




    Safe Boot from the HD, (holding Shift key down at bootup), run Disk Utility in Applications>Utilities, then highlight your drive, click on Repair Permissions.


    Any devices that previously appeared in your Printer List and Fax List will need to be added again after resetting the printing system.
