I had a to try a lot of methods and tweaks to install Photoshop CS5 under Wine before finding a combination that worked. Here are the tweaks I used: - The installer didn't work with Wine (it terminated with an error message) so I used the instructions at these two links but with some changes: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=20158&iTestingId=63332 http://maketecheasier.com/install-photoshop-cs5-in-ubuntu-maverick/2010/11/02 - The only Windows I had available for installing Photoshop was Windows 7 64-bit running on VirtualBox - However, in my Wine configuration, I used WinXP because Windows 7 did NOT work - When copying over the files from the Windows 7 machine to Ubuntu (per the instructions at maketecheasier.com) I had to make sure to copy over the 32-bit versions of the dll/exe files found in the "Program Files (x86)" folder, not the 64-bit versions in the "Program Files" folder (since my Wine release does not support 64-bit applications) - When starting Photoshop, I get a popup window "The program Photoshop.exe has encountered a serious error and needs to close", but after canceling the popup, Photoshop continues to run and I have not encountered problems with using it yet.

# Copying an install from Windows:
# Note: I used a Windows 7 32-bit install. YMMV.
# in Windows:
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:
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!
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
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. earther
