I have a no-Windows installation and Wine PS works fine for me.
If you're serious about getting this to work, consider the following
1. Add a [printers] entry to your win.ini, identical to the [devices]
entry (I don't know if this is necessary, but I have one, and other
working examples seem to include it)
2. Examine your registry (system.reg), compare it to the psdrv.reg
3. Try printing from a different Windows application
4. Run with debugging turned on --debugmsg +print,+winspool,+psdrv
5. Compile Wine from source
