    Photoshop


    First off I know it is possible because I did it before on an earlier version of wine. I am using Fedora Core 3 and wine 20050419 athlon trying to install Photoshop 7... I installed wine from the rpm, seemed best thing to do at the time. The only problem is I don't have the config file that comes with the source code

    Just wondered if anyone could post the config file here so that I don;t have to re downlaod the whole source! Also how does one install the config file, does it have to be registered in the wine registry? One more thing, which OS will Photoshop run best on, 98 or XP. On the winehq site, people claim to be able to get save for web working now....

    Not sure about this question, but you could always learn to use GIMP. It is nearly as good and FREE and native to linux so will have alot less problems. I am not a big wine fan myself. I have windows installed to use windows stuff and linux for linux stuff, that way everything runs quickly

    Codeweavers CrossOver offers you the ability to install several popular productivity apps in Linux such as MS Orifice, Photoshop, and some versions of Macromedia products. The catch is it's not free.

    WINE can do it, I just wondered if anyone could post a copy of the default config files for WINE as I don't have the source code...

    Yeah but it talks about looking at the example config files as a base. Might sound a strange questiosn but where is WINE isnstalled to on Fedora Core 3? I know you can find the config files in /home/leo/.wine but where is the actual program installed to... maybe the configs are there?

    CS2 and below should just work with wine-0.9.54

    See AdobePhotoshop - The Official Wine Wiki for details,
    but basically as of right now, wine's git tree handles
    Photoshop CS2 and under pretty darn well.
    (Imageready and Bridge, not so much.)
    The next release, wine-0.9.54, should have the fixes.
    No more futzing around should be needed; just install
    the times32 font, run the Photoshop, installer and you should be good.
    (If you don't install times32, Photoshop CS2 has a cow
    and claims there's a hardware error.)
