    HowTo / Notes

    HOWTO

    # Copying an install from Windows:

    # Note: I used a Windows 7 32-bit install. YMMV.

    # in Windows:

    install CS5

    run regedit

    navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software

    export out the 'Adobe' key, to your Desktop, as adobe_cs5.reg

    # back in a real OS and in a CLEAN Wine directory

    $ winetricks gdiplus ie6 msxml3 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008

    # Now, copy files from Windows to Wine:

    # If you're on a 64-bit version of Windows, use "Program Files (x86)" instead of "Program Files" (untested though)

    # $USER refers to your username

    "C:\Program Files\Adobe\" to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe"

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe" to $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Common Files/Adobe"

    "C:\Documents and Settings\$USER\Application Data\Adobe" to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/users/$USER/Applications Data/Adobe"

    "C:\windows\system32\odbc32.dll" to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/odbc32.dll"

    "C:\windows\system32\odbcint.dll" to "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/odbcint.dll"

    # Finally, import the Adobe registry entries. Using the file you made earlier, adobe_cs5.reg:

    $ wine regedit adobe_cs5.reg

    # Lastly, override odbc32 and odbcint as native:

    $ winecfg

    choose the library tab, type odbc32 in the override box, and choose add. Repeat for odbcint

    # Finally, run photoshop:

    $ cd "$HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe Photoshop CS5"

    $ wine Photoshop.exe

    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, however.

    ################## NOTE #################

    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".

    Advantages:
    - 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.

    Here is the patch:
    pastebin.com/6JKGu4fP

    (Note: Pastebin cut off the last, empty line, which will probably be needed so makepkg doesn't cry "malformed patch")


    Finally, if you are annoyed by tooltips in Photoshop sometimes persisting and not disappearing, there is another patch for that, that you need to apply:
    pastebin.com/dR26g3L8


    Enjoy!

    RE: A workaround for installation

    Forgot to add:

    If your legally purchased and activated Photoshop still keeps reverting to Trial mode, regardless of using an authentic product code, the Portable Edition will solve this as well.
    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?

    Weird error about color
    by Aleksandar on Sunday January 19th 2014, 15:50
    I followed whole instruction, went through all steps and im getting weird error about color missing file.

    Could not synchronize the color settings because the color settings file could not be found.

    After the error i can open some files, but some don't. When i try to open some files photoshop crash and close.

    however, odbcint was not in my library
