What works

Installation, basic use all work. There are various small issues, mostly cosmetic rendering bugs and some of the widgets work a bit wonkily, see extra notes below. Startup can also be very slow. Basically the same as my previous report on Wine 1.5.31.

What does not

UI is not usable with built-in Wine gdiplus.dll. With native Windows gdiplus.dll it becomes usable, but still with various small glitches.


What was not tested

Camera tethering, printing, web publishing.

Additional Comments

Native Windows gdiplus.dll makes most of the UI work, Wine builtin has various rendering issues, including main image view updating irregularly (practically unusable). Even with native Windows gdiplus.dll, things sometimes render badly. Needs SRGB color profile for images to be visible. Copy sRGB.icm (comes with some native Linux software, such as GraphicsMagick) to "~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/spool/drivers/color/sRGB Color Space Profile.icm" This is for 32-bit version, it might differ for 64-bit, I have no idea.

HowTo / Notes

To work optimally, Adobe Lightroom 3.0 requires the following dependencies to be installed:
  • MS Visual C++ 6 runtime
  • Standard RGB color profile
  • gdiplus.dll (graphical library)
  • Windows version set to 'vista' or 'win7'
You can easily set up your Wine environment for Lightroom using winetricks. The following command will get you started:
winetricks vcrun6 colorprofile corefonts gdiplus vista
If you experience problems with the menu bar up top not showing up, you have forgotten to set your Windows version.
