What does not
Installing from CS4 DVD / ISO.
What was not tested
Attempted various solutions to install. Started with compiling wine from source using MSI patch from Bug #18070, which allowed the CS4 installer to run.
Also used winetricks to install MSXML3, MSXML6, GDIPLUS, GECKO, COREFONTS. Tried putting amtlib.dll in $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32, and nothing has allowed me to install PhotoShop from the CS4 DVD. Most other CS4 components will install however.
3. Moving a windows installation is another way(after the steps below are made, that is) but that's not possible for everyone.
Note: This has not been updated in a long time and is likely out of date.
This is a general instruction on what should be sufficient to install and run Photoshop CS 4 under the current wine version. If the application still does not install or work, a bug report should be made at http://bugs.winehq.org detailing any errors.
This guide applies to installations of the trial version and the Master collection:
1. If not done already, download the winetricks script: wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
2. Install needed redistributables: sh winetricks msxml6 gdiplus gecko vcrun2005
3. Install MS core fonts(sudo if applicable): sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
4. Run the installation application(you might need to add a path): LANG=C wine Setup.exe
5. To work around the font layer bug(16499), and on your own risk, download atmlib.dll and copy to /drive_c/windows/system32 .
6. Run the application.
If you at this point have any problems, the correct (and good, non-evil) thing is to check if you bug is already reported among the linked bugs above. If this is you first bug report, look at some other bugs before you file your to get a feel for it. Also read the checklist shown when adding. And don't be afraid to ask if you are unsure.
Please don't use any other workarounds than those mentioned in this howto before submitting bugs as it defines what currently should suffice for the install. Using other workarounds could hide problems.
Please do NOT submit test results for "portable", cracked or in any other way illegal versions; they will be rejected outright. If you want to help out, please either buy the application or use the demo version.
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.
