Additional Comments

How to install:

Replace  with your username. You can also use your own prefix. If using the default prefix, remove the WINEPREFIX parameter from the command

  1. Install wine-staging, winetricks, wine-mono and wine_gecko
  2. Create a new prefix (you can use the default one, but I prefer to have a prefix for PS):
    WINEPREFIX=/home/<username>/Photoshop wineboot -u
  3. Install the necessary tools via winetricks: 
    WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=/home/<username>/Photoshop winetricks fontsmooth=rgb gdiplus vcrun2010 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun2015 msxml3 msxml6 atmlib corefonts
  4. Set the Windows version to 8.1 via winecfg: 
    WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=/home/<username>/Photoshop/ winecfg
  5. Run Photoshop: 
    WINEPREFIX=/home/<username>/Photoshop/ wine64 /path/to/Photoshop.exe
  6. PROFIT!

I would like to thank the original Reddit thread here.

Enjoy your Photoshop on Linux :)
