It sounds like perhaps something is messed up in the registry. I would 
suggest temporarily moving your current ~/.wine and letting Wine create 
a new one. Then run Wine's notepad and try printing from it. Does that work?
mv .wine .wine.tmp
notepad &

If that works, check the newly created registry entries, and copy them 
into your old registry, assuming you are going to restore your old ~/.wine.
