First: Don't Panic! :)
Second: remember to upgrade all of the gimp-print RPMs, as
they depend on each other. The error you got the second time

We do offer ESP Print Pro for $49 (download), which can be demoed
for free for 21 days. The direct link is:
The current release doesn't contain a PPD for the C64, but if you
email me I can send you one that will work with the 4.4.1 drivers.
