Only SERIOUS BIDDERS please!!!
I'm a Windows expert with over 15 years and a total newbie to Ubuntu and other Linux flavours.
I have just installed Ubuntu 7.10 on one of my PCs and I can't seem to install my PRINTER DRIVER for the Canon iP1000 printer.
I need a complete walkthrough with the driver for this PC. The successful bidder SHOULD see me through the ENTIRE process and NOT put me on the lurch! I'm new to this thing so don't tell me now install that package and this... I need a COMPLETE solution. The project will only be considered complete IF the bidder helps me to install and get a printout using a test print AND a printout on a Word Processor (like open office).
Please DON'T bid if you can't do this 100%. I don't know how big or small this is but if it were on Windows, it would only take me a few minutes. But I don't know if this is the same for Ubuntu.
Hope there's someone out there who can help me with this.
What I have for now:
1. P4 2.6 Ghz PC, 512MB RAM, 40GB HDD.
2. Ubuntu 7.10 just installed. I did the standard installation - don't know what is or not there.
3. I have access to the net on one PC but not on the Ubuntu machine. So I can download whatever and put it through a CD. Let me know if it is necessary to have net access on the Ubuntu PC.

Please note the following with regard to the Ubuntu project: 1. I'll be available on Skype to run through the solution using voice if necessary. 2. Please don't expect me to write any drivers in C or any other language. Like I've said already, I'm new to Ubuntu/Linux and the selected bidder will have to provide me with the necessary software. 3. I briefly know that Ubuntu requires certain packages to install some others. But I am not able to do any of these and the selected bidder will have to help me with these as well. 4. I have a Windows PC with net connection. And the Ubuntu PC is next to it - without net connection. 5. I can take instructions on my windows pc and key in the commands on the Ubuntu PC. 6. If there are any downloads (from genuine open-source sites) I can download them on your instructions and move them on to the Ubuntu PC through a CD, provided the files are reasonably small. 7. I have a basic ADSL connection. Happy bidding :)
