Hi, I'm having the same problem.
I've gone through the steps but even after I select the new plugin (PictureMatePM280.plugin) and open it, its name is not showing in the Print Using list, neither on top nor elsewhere.
I have also noticed that the Finder lists the plugin's Last Opened as empty (--) even though I've tried opening it twice.

I'm on Mac OS X 10.4.10
Thanks a lot!
