    WINE and Photoshop.

    Hello, I am trying to install Photoshop 6.0 on my SuSE machine. I have all the files on my computer in file:/root/ps and i click on the setup.exe file then type 'wine' in the open with box. It opens up the Photoshop splash screen and then says.

    If anyone has a way to fix this please let me know. I tryed changing the Config file for Wine but the windows version changes did nothing. I might have been doing it incorrectly. Any help would be great. Thank you.

    I believe the syntax is as follows:

    wine --winver=winxp whatever.exe
    You can set this in your wine config file, as well.

    Hello, When i do that
    wine -- Setup.exe [winver=winxp]
    it runs with the same error as before. I change winxp to win98 and still have the same issue.

    I have learned, no matter how much I hate to admit it, that wine just doesn't work for the "more complex" window applications.

    I'll report back on xoveroffice shortly...

    Uncomment this line:

    ;"Windows" = "win98"
    And change win98 to winxp.

    not to give you the overused GNU app lecture, but untill you figure this out or we see what crossover office has to offer, try The Gimp, extensive plugin support makes it m image editor of choice, granted I cannot afford Photoshop, so my prefernce is skewed by that a little...

    This might help -

    It looks like you want to simply uncommented out the windows line
    Windows" = "win98"

    Looks like a great site for drinking wine

    BTW - what error are you getting? Your error message does not actually appear in your post.

    Try the GIMP instead, IMO it's better anyways.
