Open Synaptic, and search for CUPS-PDF. It's a PDF printer, and it's what I use to print to pdf my GCA files. CUPS is the printing framework, but GCA needs an actual printer driver for quick view. WinE should make your CUPS printers available to windows apps. Don't try to install a printer driver on WinE though.
