If I print from gimp (version 2.6.11) I get always a cover page. If I print from other applications for example gimp, libreoffice, firefox or just from command line via lpr there is no cover page.

Is there a way to get rid of the cover page in gimp?

I use ubuntu natty 11.04 and cups version 1.4.6-5ubuntu1.4.

Ok, I figured it out by myself: Just go in the printing dialogue to Job and select None at Cover Page before and after as on the following screenshot. gimp seems to remember this setting for other print jobs.
