RESUME: I install in PlayOnLinux 'Microsoft Word Viewer 2003' but the Printer not working. Here are the solution, for this and for more apps that need use the Printer under Wine PlayOnLinux
If you have a printer properly configured under Ubuntu, probably it'll be automatically available under wine.

cups. No problem if the printer is installed using other softwares/drivers, but to get it available for wine, it must be installed under
cups package is not installed, install it:
sudo apt-get install cups
Then, and add your printer with the metod that you want.
After configure it, print a test page using the related printer in
Now, in Ubuntu 16.04 this file
/etc/printcap is not available more for cups(1), but is necessary for PlayOnLinux, create it this way:
sudo ln -sf /var/run/cups/printcap /etc/printcap
Reboot wine: Close all PlayOnLinux windows
