Trying to print in wine with every program leads me to a message saying
I have corrupted registry.

err:winspool:WINSPOOL_GetDevModeFromReg corrupted registry for
L"Default DevMode" ( size 2)
no DevMode in registry. please setup your printer again.
use the default hard-coded DevMode(wineps/A4/300dpi).

The generic.ppd file is installed and configured in .wine/config as
printing.html says.

[syl at snoop wine]$ ls -l /usr/lib/wine/generic.ppd
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           44 oct 10 10:12
/usr/lib/wine/generic.ppd ->

The lp printer is detected, another called 'lexmarkz22-z32', and the
Wine Postscript Driver.
Both printers are local lpr printers.

When trying to print under notepad, I get 2 windows saying that the
device and printer name are empty.
A third window displays a random text, I validate it and the 'Print'
dialog comes back.
I must choose "Cancel" otherwise the program crashes.

Any ideas ?
