Thank you for your suggestions.

My printer is listed in /etc/cups/printers.conf and I can print from
programs running outside wine, so I assume cups is working ok.  I must
be missing some setup internal to wine.  I am using wine 20041201.  The
programs I'm trying to run under wine say that no printer is installed
and when I go to the printer setup in, for example quickbooks, it tells
me to go to windows and install the printer.  I checked some other
programs running under wine and I can't print from them also.
