Printing/Creating PDF Files

Post by Juan Largo » Thu Feb 28, 2008 12:14 pm

Hi,

This is my first post here. I'm trying to create PDF files from other applications running in Wine 0.9.56. I've installed Autosketch Release 5 and Adobe Acrobat Writer V4.0 in Wine (in that order). Each of these programs work well in Wine by themselves, but I can't figure out how to get Autosketch to use Adobe Writer to create PDF files.

I haven't tried it, but some say that cups-pdf will do this for you.
What Linux distro are you using, btw? And is it 32 or 64 bits?

The thread at
http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-us ... 27517.html
suggests trouble if you're running 64 bit linux.

Windows-based pdf printer drivers ought to work eventually,
but I'm not enough of a printer guy to know if they work now.
The question's come up before:

Thanks, Dan. The cups-pdf solution looks like it might work. Since all my applications in wine recognize my default printer, they should also recognize cups-pdf when it's set up properly.
