Printer driver?

Post by ghe » Sat Jan 19, 2013 6:39 am

Hi,

I just tried to upgrade Wine (on a Debian system) from version 1.0.1 to 1.4.1.

I use Wine only to run two dictionaries: one from Collins (English) and one from Van Dale (Dutch).

Alas, the Collins dictionary (version 2.0b, from 1995...) does not work anymore after the upgrade: the main window of the program is drawed correctly, but when I type a word in the search box, I get the following error message: "You must have a default printer driver capable of handling truetype fonts". I have no idea how I should fix this, or why I need a printer driver although I don't want or need to print anything...

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

Fixed.

I did not notice that during the upgrade libwine-print was removed, and libwine-print:i386 (I'm on amd64) was not installed...
