I am running wine 20050725 under KDE/Debain/testing with binaries from 
deb http://wine.sourceforge.net/apt/ binary/ on the client in question. 

I am trying to print from QuickBooks 6 to a printer server (Brother HL1240) 
running cups 1.1.18. The client is accessing the printer from kprinter and
printing from the native Linux applications with no problem. 

When I try to print from QuickBooks I get this error:

err:psdrv:PSDRV_FindPrinterInfo Error 2 getting PPD file name for printer

The server cupsd error log shows
D [19/Sep/2005:13:19:48 -0700] AcceptClient() 3 from
D [19/Sep/2005:13:19:48 -0700] ReadClient() 3 POST / HTTP/1.1
D [19/Sep/2005:13:19:48 -0700] ProcessIPPRequest: 3 status_code=0

$lpstat -a
HL1240 accepting requests since Jan 01 00:00

I tried configuring conf and wini.ini files as dicussed in
www.deesconsulting.com/howtos/wine-kprinter.txt with no luck. 

I also tried placing the ppd file in the working directory from the Quickbooks
executable as well as in other areas, but get the same errors noted above. 

Thanks for any ideas.
