Updated

Our client has asked us to write a Linux print driver for a Canon ink jet printer to work with their proprietary application running on Ubuntu 9.x. We will supply a PC & printer as a "bench kit" for testing and you will work with our staff in Cincinnati Ohio to test, review your code and provide feedback and manage the project. You must have past experience with similar projects and good references on the same. Please submit your credentials. You will need to sign NDAs, W9s and contractor agreement paperwork. You may be asked to have errors and omissions insurance for this project. Details: 1. Take the existing Canon printer driver (linux) and compile it to run in an Ubuntu 9.x (primary need) and 14.04 environment (future Os upgrade) with CUPS. We have a proprietary system that prints photos. Printer is the USA version of the Canon IP7220 color ink jet printer. Link to the existing driver will be provided. 2. Ensure that the driver can communicate with our app to give print job status percentage of completion, start, pause, stop, cancel. Part of what we need is the ability to detect the percentage of completion of printing. When our system detects that an image was printed at 51% completed we deduct a credit from the customer's account. But if the print job fails prior to that 51% we do not charge them. The app will also need to be able to control the print job overall. 3. Modify the driver to use an external color lookup table that we can supply dynamically as our ink supplier changes formula. Allowing us to modify the lookup table without having to revise the printer driver. These are what are known as ICC Profiles. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ICC_profile ICC / ICM color tables should be dynamically referenced in the code and static files on the hard drive. 4. Document any steps needed to install and configure in the Ubuntu environments. 5. Provide compil-able source code via our GitHub repository for our team to test and review. 6. Time is of the essence. We need a fast turn around time.
