[Wine] No printers visible on Mac OS X Snow Leopard

I am a wine newbie so forgive me if this was already answered, but my Google foo is not good enough to solve the problem.

I just installed wine version 1.2.2 on Mac OS 10.6.6 using Macports. I also installed gdiplus using winetricks. I am not able to see any of my Mac printers on Notepad's Print Dialog. The only printer visible is "Microsoft XPS Document Writer".

I have tried to diagnose this problem as follows:

1) I can go to http://localhost:631/printers and manage CUPS.

2) nc localhost 631, followed by entering text, returns HTML with a 405 error.

3) I ran the command: cupsctl BrowseRemoteProtocols=cups

4) I tried to Add Printers in the wine environment, but I can't figure out how. The Print dialog doesn't have an "Add Printer" button. The Control Panel doesn't have a "Printers and Faxes" applet.

Any suggestions on how to resolve and/or diagnose would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks for the help!
