Make a simple small web site describing your program with the source 
tarball for download (give a free software license, like GPL or MIT to 
your code).

If you want to package it for Ubuntu, see the developer part of the 
Debian web site for instructions how to make .deb packages. Use the PPA 
(Personal Package Area) on Lauchpad to make your package downloadable 
and auto-updateable.

How do you make a dialog popping up triggered by CUPS executing a print 
job? DBUS?
