What works

All features work, from what I can see - saving, opening, filters, save for web, file browser (Adobe Bridge early version), etc.

What does not

Nothing that I can really see - everything works as expected except for two little things!!! 

Bug #1: Type tool needs system fonts

You do need to install MS fonts in order for type tool to work... (change below for non-Debian/Ubuntu distros)

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ttf-mscorefonts-installer

PLEASE READ: However, after installing you can remove the following from where the fonts are saved, otherwise your in-browser font displaying (like Chrome) will get messed up:

cd /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts
rm -rf Arial*
rm -rf Times*

To completely remove MSFT fonts if uninstalling Photoshop, just do:

sudo apt-get remove ttf-mscorefonts-installer
fc-cache -rv

Also, you may have to convert OpenType to TrueType fonts in order for Photoshop to recognize it, since I don't believe Linux likes OpenType (even though Photoshop 7.0 can support OT)


Bug #2:

If you minimize Photoshop, upon maximizing palettes will be gone. Closing/restarting Photoshop is fastest way to get palettes back in position.

WORKAROUND: Don't minimize (leave up).

HowTo / Notes


When you want to use the clone tool, you'll find the following useful:

ALT-Click is intercepted by most window managers and used as the "move window", so you have to either use shift-alt-click instead, or configure your window manager to use something else for "move window". For instance, on Ubuntu, do System / Windows / Movement Key, and pick "Super" instead of "Alt". See also the codeweavers FAQ.

ALT-Click keybinding and Compiz

Thanks to earther for the following email:

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.

Just got bit by alt-click to clone AGAIN. Here's how to get functionality back in xfce 4.10:

Settings > Settings Manager > Window Manager Tweaks > Accessibility > change Key used to grab to "none".
No longer able to save after long periods
by Jay Philips on Friday February 27th 2015, 8:17
I noticed that after working with photoshop 7 for long periods in wine 1.7.4+ that i was no longer able to save the image and would loss work when this would happen, so i began saving regularly.
