Creating new Printer Driver


What steps would I need to take if I wanted to write a printer driver for a Lexmark X5150 under Linux. Taking into account:

1) I haven't got any real C or C++ skills (so okay - I get this first)

Then what would I need to do?

Let's call this a trial by fire project...

Pearls of wisdom will be put on display and polished regularly

Cheers.

It would take an entire book to explain what to do. So here is the book:
