for me, on the first run, I got an
error that the trial had expired. On the second run, it worked fine,
saying I have 30 days. Each subsequent runs still has the dialog,
Do not report bugs to wine with an
installation done this way. Wait until the installer bugs are fixed
or have patches to workaround them!
HOW TO make the Installer to run
By default, after the installer extract nothing happens.
In order to make the Adobe installer tor run you install the following dependencies, do this:
With winetricks, on terminal type this:
sh winetricks msxml6 gdiplus gecko vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 msxml3 atmlib
Make sure you have msvcr80.dll on your wine's system32 folder.
After checking some sources about gdiplus I also copied gdiplus.dll to system folder
This should make your Installer to boot however making the installer to complete the instalation 100% may need more tweaking

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.

A workaround for installation
by Storm Engineer on Tuesday October 28th 2014, 9:10
A very easy workaround for installation is using the "Portable Edition".
- No installation, works out of box
- No need to add registry entry
- No need to copy DLLs from Windows
- Completely self contained, doesn't place any configs files into the prefix, everything is neatly within the folder of the app.
Steps to set up:
1; Make a new 32 bit prefix (64 bit won't work!):
WINEPREFIX=[path to your custom prefix] WINEARCH=win32 winecfg
2; Install gdiplus, atmlib and corefonts - the rest mentioned above are not needed. Winetricks will automatically set the needed overrides as well:
WINEPREFIX=[path to your custom prefix] WINEARCH=win32 winetricks atmlib gdiplus corefonts
3; Copy the portable folder anywhere in the prefix (I used C:/photoshop_portable ) and run it. Voila!
Now, an additional step may be required, if your brush doesn't draw, but makes only a dot. To fix that you need to patch wine and compile it yourself. Don't worry, it's easy! There are only a few lines you need to comment out in the source code before compiling.
CoInitializeEx Attempt to change threading model of this apartment from apartment threaded to multi-threaded
by Kyle Keiper on Tuesday June 24th 2014, 9:43
I'm close to getting the installer to run, but I can't figure out where this error is coming from. It's shutting down the installer, so obviously, it's being a pain. Does anyone know what causes this bug?
