Do you mean not even the printer-dialog comes up? If it doesn't i guess you just hit another wine-bug. 

Note: if everything fails, you could try as last resort, if printing to pdf file _does_ work. Howto is below, copied from appdb. The pdf can of cause be printed from Linux easily.

1. Install cups-pdf

2. edit /etc/cups/cups-pdf.conf and put something like this:

Out ${HOME}/PDF 

instead of


in the file (otherwise i got errors like 'permission denied') 

3. When the printer-dialog (in for exampe notepad or other app) opens, choose "Cups-pdf printer" , _DON'T_ choose "print to file" !!!, just hit 'OK' button, and you will find your pdf-file in ~/PDf with some kind of funny name.........[/quote]
