View Full Version : Printers under wines

September 21st, 2011, 12:13 PM
Dear Sir,

My plan to run oracle forms, reports 6i application under wine,
1- i succeed run it but when i tried to printout it's gave me no printer available, that i already have Zebra ZM400, so
1- How i can configure printers under wine?
2- Can i run terminal from cmd.exe (So i can use HOST command from the forms 6i)
3- How i can change the default printer from wine (CMD command).

Thanks in advanced,

Check here
but I doubt it works for you... maybe if you tried to use a network printer... but not sure.

Generally printers are available trough windows (wine) API, so if Your priner works in Linux (CUPS) then it should work in wine too -> configure the printer under Linux.
Windows cmd is not supported very well, but if Your cmd works, then You can just map the printer as a device port of Your choice by creating a link somewhere in wine prefix scope, e.g. $HOME/.wine/dosdevices.
This works well for almost any external device, even such unusal ones like interface for frequncy converters (I'm using Moeller DriveSoft2 in such way :) )
