Would it be possible to document the process for doing things with
Gutenprint and some "standard" Epson printers ?
I mean document for end-users with screen shots ? I would be prepared

The result should be a document showing first how to print, then how
to profile and print, then how to ink-limit, linearize, profile and
print with Gutenprint.
