How to get Gimp Plugin post-installation

I just downloaded the 30 day free trial in order to try to print in linux from Gimp on my Epson P800 and it did not prompt me to add a gimp plugin, nor did it install the plugin automatically.

I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and Gimp 2.10.12.

How can I get the plugin independently of the TurboPrint install?

the TurboPrint plugin for GIMP is installed automatically if GIMP is already installed on your system. If you install GIMP after TurboPrint, you can simply repeat installation of TurboPrint - this will not change your installed printers.

The TurboPrint GIMP plugin works only if GIMP is installed as a regular package, not as a "Snap" package - installation paths are different for Snap. I just tried to figure out how to install the plugin for the Snap package, however it seems to be more complicated - maybe we can add this for the next TurboPrint release.
