Hmmm, seems that you first have to learn how to configure printing? Look
in the Documentation section on winehq for that. If you use Cups
everything is done for you otherwise add something like this to your

"XXX" = "/usr/share/doc/wine-20031212/samples/generic.ppd"

where XXX is the name of your printer from printcap and the ppd ios the
example from the wine sources.

"Never touch a running system! Never run a touching system?
          Never run a touchy system!!!"
