Yes, it is rather fuzzy. I am pretty sure that only the Wine Postscript 
driver works, and even that only works with some apps. But printing from 
wordpad works fine for me.

If you see the printer in wordpad but it does not print, then I would 
check that the your win.ini file contained:
Wine PostScript Driver=WINEPS,LPT1:

And that your ~/.wine/config contained:

If you can print a postscript file from within Linux using "lpr", then that should work.

You could also try printing to a file. The resulting file will be named 
"file:", and I never did try to figure out how to change that.

My real email is at dclark (or something like that).
