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

This test report is a continuation of an earlier install of Photoshop 8.0 on Wine (see earlier reports) with Trusty. After the initial update of Wine all features worked, although eventually issues occured (see next section).

What does not

After update to Wine 1.7.28:

Photoshop reports problem saving images with an "Optimized Profile" due to reported shortage of available memory.

Photoshop refuses to render lighting effects due to reported shortage of available memory.

Photoshop doesn't start the Liquify filter due to reported shortage of available memory.

Photoshop doesn't apply the platic wrap filter due to reported shortage of available memory.

Eventually PS stopped functioning completely due to "missing essential libraries"

Removal and fresh install of PS does not work - PS installer refuses to start with Wine 1.7.28.

Additional Comments

Complete removal of the Photoshop installation and Wine 1.7.28, and subsequent reinstall of Wine 1.6.2 and Photoshop 8 restored all functionality.

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.
