You shouldn't have to copy Photoshop from Windows; just install
it under Wine by running its Setup.exe. (To run a .exe under wine,
you have to doubleclick it, right click and choose "Run with Wine",
or run it from the commandline using the 'wine' command, depending
on how your Linux distribution integrates Wine.)
I was having problems with the Photoshop 7 ALT-Click keybinding in a new Debian install running Compiz. I did the standard window manager tweak but it still didn't work properly. Then I discovered an ALT-Click keybinding in the Compiz Window Management > Move Window > Initiate Window Move settings. I changed it to 'super' like in Gnome window management and voila, it seemed to get it working again in Photoshop. You might want to add that bit of info to the clone tool info on the Photoshop 7 page.

CS Stalls on 'scanning for plugin-ins..'

If you're having the problem that CS stalls on start up while displaying the text "scanning for plugin-ins.." you may be able to fix the issue by removing the problematic plugin.
Does upgrade or full version matter?
by Eric Lorenz on Wednesday December 30th 2009, 23:11
I am a fairly new Ubuntu user...and I have 9.04 running on my IBM laptop. I am attempting to install Photoshop CS- but it is an UPGRADE version (from 5.5). I cannot seem to get it to install successfully. I issue is the upgrade check- I can't do search CD, as the CS CD is 'locked' in the drive and cannot be released while the install program is active. So, I installed 5.5 first (went fine, seems to run OK). When I look for the folder where the 5.5 install is to verify, I get an error message saying "Verification error: A qualifying version of Photoshop was not detected", but the install program itself says it's looking for anything 5.0 or higher. Am I doing something wrong here, or should I report this?
