Hi to all,
Last year I ask for help here, for a PB-based application issue, and the good folks here pointed me to a solution :-) Now I got another problem.

Part of the app consists in print invoices. That function works in Windows, but in Wine I got an screwed printout.

Just for experimental purposes, I installed the "CUPS-PDF" package, to get the PDF view of the invoice, and the PDF looks good (if you don't know what CUPS-PDF is, it lets you create a "virtual printer" in CUPS, which takes your printjob and transform it to a PDF file, much like the "Export to PDF" function of OpenOffice.org). 

I put two PDFs in anyhs.dontexist.net, showing a "good invoice", printed with CUPS-PDF; and a "bad invoice", printed to a real printer.

I ran the app with WINEDEBUG using the "print", "printui" and "winspool" channels, but I didn't find anything that seems an error or bug, except for this:

fixme:psdrv:PSDRV_ExtEscape QUERYESCSUPPORT(25) - not supported.
