Released April 12 2010
Two versions: Basic and Extended
Works perfectly in 1.3.33.
I used Dell KACE AppRedistributer as suggested in the comments to make a msi installer for Linux. My source was Windows 7. After installing the msi in Linux, I then had to copy the "Program Files\Adobe" folder from Windows to Linux. I set wine to Windows 7. I also used the following winetricks and didn't change the defaults of the DLL overrides. Aside from the program files folder and whatever the MSI copied, no dll's were copied from my Windows install.
Here is the default DLL overrides created with winetricks
* gdiplus (native)
* msvcr80 (native, builtin)
* msvcr90 (native, builtin)
* msxml3 (native, builtin)
* msxml6 (native, builtin)
* atmlib (native, builtin)
What does not
A regression was found. It exists in 1.3.36, 1.3.37, 1.4-rc5. The paintbrush doesn't work properly. You can't create a smooth stroke with the paintbrush. All it does is leave dots. I think one of the modifier keys are getting stuck or the mouse button is being depressed soon after it's being pressed. For example,
You can make the smile on a basic smiley face in version 1.3.33 with the paintbrush. It won't let you make the smile part in 1.3.36 onwards.
What was not tested
When using 1.3.3, everything I tried worked. Paintbrush, embedded files, content aware, zooming, saving. Too many features to test out all of them.
I would rate it gold, but with that paintbrush, issue I can't anymore.

# 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
