Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop CS was commercially released in October 2003 as the eighth major version of Photoshop. Photoshop CS increased user control with a reworked file browser augmenting search versatility, sorting and sharing capabilities and the Histogram Palette which monitors changes in the image as they are made to the document. Match Color was also introduced in CS, which reads color data to achieve a uniform expression throughout a series of pictures.

What works

Details:
It installs perfectly. Wine 1.7.17 version lets you install without previous preinstall actions. It does ask for additional installs (e.g. gecko, Mono) during the install automatically. Finished the install without any problems.

After install PS works flawlessly with only minor adjustments.

What does not

MINOR ISSUES:

  1. Wine window containing PS does not minimise/ maximise and behaves as it it "Always on Top". However, the option "Always on Top" was not selected/ is not active. SOLUTION: Close PS if active. Copy atmlib.dll to directory ~.wine/drive_c/windows/system32. Restart PS. Normal window behaviour restored. If problem remains, this can be solved during a PS session by first going to File> Open> open a file or cancel this dialogue window. After this normal window behaviour is restored.
  2. Remove conflict ALT Xubuntu and Photoshop keyboard shortcut. ALT key also assigned in Xubuntu, so interference on e.g. PS clone stamp. Solution: Settings> Windows Manager Tweaks> Accessability tab> Change key to grab window toNone.
  3. After installation I did run into some problems related with the NVidia screen driver powering my dual screen set up. PS showed serious flickering of PS screen elements, moving PS windows (e.g. Layers and History windows) was barely responsive and screen refreshes failed. However, changing back to the open source XOrg drivers solved these issues completely.
  4. Another minor issue is that occasionally the window sizing seems to be off in dialogue windows, thus for example in the Save window cutting off some of the lettering/ dialogue on the left side. This occurred only for a limited time after the install, then disappeared, and has not returned.

Workarounds

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
  • 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.)
  • Never use a cracked version of Photoshop.
  • Never run Wine as root.
  • Use a recent version of Wine (1.0.1 or later).
  • Before installing Photoshop, install the Times32 font by downloading and running one of the corefont installers, e.g. http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/corefonts/times32.exe , else Photoshop will abort with a "hardware error" [see bug 9623]
  • The Clone tool uses the ALT key in a way that conflicts with many window managers. Here's how to fix that:
    • Ubuntu: System / Windows / Movement Key, and pick "Super" instead of "Alt".
    • Kubuntu: K / System Settings / Look and Feel / Windows / Movement Key, and pick "Super" instead of "Alt"
    • Suse with Gnome: Computer / Control Center / Look and Feel / Windows / Movement Key, and pick "Super" instead of "Alt"
    • Fedora 8 Gnome: System / Preferences / Look and Feel / Windows / Movement Key, and pick "Super" instead of "Alt
    • Suse with KDE: Gecko / Favorites / Configure Desktop / Desktop / Window Behavior / Window Actions / "Inner Window, Titlebar & Frame" , and pick "Meta" instead of "Alt"
    • Earlier KDE: KDE Control Center / Desktop / Window Behavior / Window Actions / turn off the alt-combos.
    • Earlier Gnome: Destop Preferences / Keyboard Layout / Options / Alt/Win key behavior [expand tree]; select new behavior for modifier keys
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.

CS locked until you open an image
by tom fraser on Friday February 28th 2014, 3:24
I have found CS very stable since 2007 or so. But now i am on 64bit Ubuntu Studio, wine 1.4.1, i find that when Cs loads i cannot go to any other program. I am stuck in Photoshop - until i open an image - then everything is fine again.
