Exclamation how to set-up windows printer and font in WINEs

I just downloaded and installed CodeWeaver Wine RPM package.

It works pretty well when wine is run with a windows partition ie
I can run MS Office

However running wine with a fake windows set up does produce some problems.

1. Question is how can I install a printer under the fake windows set up ? Which exe to run or do I need to change config

2. How do I use and install the standard Windows fonts. Running
wine on fake windows set up produces very ugly & unreadable fonts

Any help is much appreciated

Franks World is a good place for wine/x help, and WineTools can be used to install webfonts.

Question Still can't print

I have installed winetool but still can't print to windows printer.

Winetool does allow me to install windows fonts but there are no
options to install win printers

BTW, I when I used Wine with real Windows partition I do get the
print options under windows file menu but when I click on print. The app will report an error, saying printer is offline etc

Does anyone have any idea ??
