As i touhgt a symlinks is not enough... No chance for alias? Isn't there a
mechanism to make wine to use different dll if required to do so? Anyway, i'll
be very happy If you'll change cups code a bit: is very frustrating this
impossibility of edit the autodetect configuration, and the fact it removes any
other printer configured in the [windows] section in win.ini (is it a bug?)!
...forgive me if i forwarded the previous mail only to you. I was at university
and i did a mistake with the web-mail.
