Some more Ideas for SOC:
PrintDlgEx* is the Default Printing-Dialog since w2k, but we have
only a stub. Some Apps fail to Print for that reason.
A usable Implementation need to Support the Properties from the
Application (Example from IE: Print actual Frame / Print Links only)
and the Properties from the Printer-Driver (provided by wineps.drv
from the PPD-File).
Fun-Project: Support Native Printer Drivers
The CUPS-Backend "ddiwrapper" (GPL) uses Ghostscript to render
BMP-Images on Linux, forward them to an modified wine (winspool.drv
and gdi32.dll are replaced) that used a native driver (reported to
work with some Cannon-Printers) to print that BMP-Image to the
Printer (/dev/lp0 or /dev/usb/lp0).
A usable Implementation will enhance winspool.dev and gdi32.dll in
such a way, that "ddiwrapper" will work "out of the box"
Fun-Project: Support Native Scanner Drivers
A usable Implementation will work with a modified twain_32.dll
(and kernel32.dll / ntdll.dll), but without a Kernel-Module
(Example: via libusb).
