Thanks for the answers. First I tried Martin Gregorie 'gimpwrapper'. I saved the script in my desktop (scrivania) and gave the following commands:

utente at utente-desktop:~$ sudo cp /home/utente/Scrivania/gimpwrapper /usr/bin
utente at utente-desktop:~$ sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/gimpwrapper

But when I choose 'Edit subpic with external tool', 'Gimp' keeps on giving:

<Opening of "/usr/bin/C:\users\utente\Temp\tempbitmap.bmp" has failed: cannot open '/usr/bin/C:\users\utente\Temp\tempbitmap.bmp' in read mode: non existing file or directory>

I don't know what went wrong.
