What works

Globally works fine (Open Catalog, Import, Develop, Export, Book, Presentation)

What does not

About Dialog crashes

'Export in JPEG...' crashes works; instead normal export dialog (with options) works fine


Often update doesn't works, but is possible to update to certain versions.

Workaround to install 6.7.4 (2015-7)

First notice that the direct installation of 6.7.4 version crashes. But there is a workaround: first, install 6.1 version, then run installation of 6.7.4 in the same directory (using: WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-LR wine msiexec -i /[lightroom installer folder]/setup/build/'Adobe Lightroom.msi'); choice "modify installation" --> select modules in dialog  --> install. --> Lightroom upgraded to 2015-7

Additional Comments

Lightroom version installed 6.1; upgrade to 6.7.4 (2015-7) is possible

Wine version used: 3.21



wineboot -u
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-LR winecfg [--> select windows 8.1]
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-LR winetricks gdiplus corefonts windowscodecs [-->windowscodecs is optional]
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-LR wine /[lightroom installer folder]/'Set-up.exe'

(wine-LR is an example of folder, replace it if you want)

(notice the installation is slow and sometimes it seems is going to patient!)

The program works both nvidia and intel graphic card.

Other notes:

Lightroom works slower than in windows system (notice I used Intel Ivibridge graphics)
