Hi Guys,

I have spent the past 3 or 4 nights trying to get Epson PrintCD 2.2.4 
working under Wine 1.7.22 without luck. It installs fine, and the 
program does everything it should, so that's a win, but it won't see the 
CUPS printer driver. I've tried loading the Windows Printer driver 
within Wine, but I can't get past the error message "This software is 
not suitable for your system" (or similar to that).

I've hit up the Wine forums and found mixed results there, but nothing 
really helpful. I've tried a few different versions of Wine too via Play 
On Linux. I've also tried a few versions of the program as well.

Has anyone had any luck getting it to work? Those who are unfamiliar to 
the app, it's a program for design layouts for printable CDs, which you 
print out using the special feeder on the Epson Artisan 730 printer.

I have setup gLabels, which is working reasonably well, but I can't 
force a change to the printer margins, so the printing is 3mm off from 
the left and top of the disc.

I also have an issue with the print quality to the disc, even though the 
print dialogs are all set to CD, the printer seems to be using plain 
paper ink levels.

I was reading about Gutenprint tonight, but I haven't tried it at this 

Thanks in advance
