    Dreamweaver CS3, Wine


    I am trying to setup wine to run DreamWeaver CS3. I have installed wine using Yast, but when I try to run winecfg i get the folllowing error:

    Warning: the specified Windows directory L"c:\\windows" is not accessible.
    Warning: the specified System directory L"c:\\windows\\system32" is not accessible.

    then winecfg loads... any idea what this means-how to fix it?
    thanks in advance, have a great one,
    Christopher King

    Photoshop CS3 not supported yet

    First off, Wine does not yet really support Photoshop CS3;
    see AdobePhotoshop - The Official Wine Wiki

    Second, it's possible you had a broken old .wine directory.
    Try deleting the .wine directory in your home directory,
    and run (say) wine notepad.

    Generally there is little need to run winecfg anymore. I hardly ever do it.

    i don't have a wine dir in home

    thanks for replying so fast. the reason why I running the winecfg was because i didn't have a wine directory in my home folder. I thought that that would be setup when I typed winecfg into the command prompt. and I know its not fully supported, but I have been told that it should work pretty well in the latest version of wine. so... what should I do to get everything correct with wine? uninstall it through yast, then reinstall? or is there another way?
    thanks for the help,

    Wrong. Photoshop CS2 works pretty well. Photoshop CS3 doesn't work yet.

    I have no idea what's causing those error
    messages, but you should know that scary
    messages from wine are normal. Unless
    software actually misbehaves, you should
    ignore most of those messages.

    still trying to get those directories

    I will not be using photoshop though, only dreamweaver... is there alot of known issues with dreamweaver as well? I am trying to follow an online guide to setup dreamweaver, it is located here:
    Wine AppDB - Dreamweaver CS 3
    and it talks about copying files into directories in the .wine folder in my home folder, so how do I go about getting the whole .wine directory structure there, and acting like it should?
    thanks again,
    Christopher King

    Sorry, I have Photoshop on the brain

    Dreamweaver 8 is working pretty well without any recipe;
    it just installs and works. I don't know how well that recipe
    you pointed to works for CS3; it's for crazier people than me.

    Are you quite sure you have a problem?
    Does 'wine notepad' work? If so, you probably have
    a .wine directory, you're just not seeing it.

    Files and directories with names starting with . are
    traditionally hidden in Unix/Linux.

    that works

    well I reinstalled the version of wine in yast... as I had done some messing with directories etc. and then typed "wine notepad" I got errors, but it did load... does this mean that all is well?
    thanks for all your help,

    How to see hidden files in KDE

    Probably. As I said before, you can usually ignore all
    the gibberish wine prints on the console as long as
    the app is behaving.

    View / Show Hidden Files, I think.

    thanks much... I am now working on my site in dreamweaver running on linux. One more question, is there an easy way to get the same fonts, and colors everywhere that dreamweaver uses under windows? and some of the icons seem to be missing, if I float my cursor over where they should be, I get the text telling me that I have selected... if I click there, it works, but that is the only way tell whats going to happen... not sure why that is either... maybe I missed a folder that adobe saves its icons in...?
    thanks for all the help...
