I happened to have two systems running Fedora core 4, with CUPS 1.1.23.
I have one system set up with the printers (an HP and an Epson), and the
other printer sends prints to it remotely, as:
I "added" the printer via the web browser interface. That does add an
entry into the /etc/printcap file:
# This file was automatically generated by cupsd(8) from the
# /etc/cups/printers.conf file. All changes to this file
# will be lost.
where hp_kotao is the remote printer. It prints fine from Linux apps,
and also prints fine from Wine. Currently I have Wine-0.9.12 on that
machine, but I'll update and try again.
I believe Wine attempts to use runtime detection of the printer system,
and may basically just use the /etc/printcap file for that. I think the
first thing to determine is why your printer is configured differently
from mine; that is, why you are not getting a printcap file.
