Additional Comments

As Flash CS6 was not directly installable on Linux, it was installed on Windows XP 32bit, following instruction in this site. Flash was able to start and run, but when I right click over a frame and call the "actions" window, in order to edit AS3 code, the program crashes and throws the following error: Wine throws the following error: #wine: Unimplemented function gdiplus.dll.GdipCreateEffect called at address 0x7b83b581 (thread 0009), starting debugger... Unhandled exception: unimplemented function gdiplus.dll.GdipCreateEffect called in 32-bit code (0x7b83b581). Such action depends at least on GDI 1.1 'GdipCreateEffect' method, that, AFAIK, is not available to Windows XP 32bits. Such GDI+ function is also necessary for Illustrator CS6, as reported on bug 32163.

To solve this, just use winetricks to install "atmlib", "gdiplus", "msxml6" and "mfc42".
