Thanks a lot for this. I had installed cups-pdf, now I realise that it 
was done under the 32-bit chroot install, only.

I can now print to cups-pdf, and a file is generated, but the page is 
blank. I now realise I didn't say this in my original post, but printing 
to the printer will produce a blank page. Hence the comment that the log 
  appears to generate a page.

Looks to me as though wine/MYOB is not translating the information into 
postscript properly.

I tried installing PDF-Creator under wine (the Windows .exe) and it 
comes up in the print dialogue, but just hangs, with no output.

Thanks for your help and interest
