This is shooting in the dark, but do you have printers defined with names
longer than 3 characters?
You might try changing your printer names down to 3 characters. E.G. lp0,

Subject: [lug] WP on Linux
I'm having some trouble with WordPerfect on a RHL 7.2 install. I found
a thread on the Corel Linux newsgroup that discusses my problem. When I
run wordperfect from the command line I get
wine: readwriteprintcap.c:641: ParseLprPrintcapBuffers: Assertion
`(charsCopied < 4)' failed.
/usr/bin/wordperfect: line 223: 1880 Aborted
"$corelwine" "$app $_WINE_AppArgs" -winver nt40 -managed
The following is a response to the above error by another poster:
Well, then it must actually be a problem with your "/etc/printcap"
file. WINE seems to have problems
I couldn't get "LPRng" to work with either WP8 or WP9. I forgot which
one. So, I had to go back to
just plain "lpr". Then I upgraded to GNUlpr which is on SourceForge.
It seems to have a problem with
printer names, but works otherwise.
I see the gnulpr at that site, but there is no rpm file. I prefer to
install everything on this system with rpm, but will go the traditional
route if I have to. Is there something else I can try first?
