Well, I'm trying to use a USB printer with a Windows program in Wine that uses only Parallel and serial ports to print. So I have to emulate parallel or serial ports to use the USB printer.

I have it installed as a CUPS printer and it works fine, in Wine works too, but I want to be recognized as a parallel or serial port.

I Googled a lot and I didn't find a real answer, as I'm like new to this OS.

I use Ubuntu 13.10 and a laptop HP computer, no serial or parallel ports, only USB.

Thanks in advance! :D
