Adobe Photoshop CC 2021
Works pretty well, tested basic functionality. Whatever I tested works perfectly well.
Wasnt janky, tried editing a bunch of images, is pretty smooth as how it is on windows natively.
What does not
Still it is not possible to run the installer.
Installer starts, but gets into a white box and the wine process hangs up.
Hint boxes are broken. Hint boxes are just black. Maybe use the internet to match up. Some filters are broken too.
I just used a KVM machine to install it, and then copy up all the files to a linux-native file system.
You really need not use a KVM, if you have a dual boot machine, just go to windows, please use windows 10, it fails to load up otherwise, install it, come back to linux, mount your drive and copy it up!
It really doesnt matter how its installed, just copy the C:\Program Files\Adobe entirely
Just install winetricks, wine-gecko from your package manager and run this.
winetricks vcrun2019 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun2010 fontsmooth=rgb gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 atmlib corefonts
Run winecfg and set operating system as "Windows 10", Photoshop 2021 refuses to open on an older system
Add esync in Lutris settings.
Needs DXVK, please look up on how to install it, and set it for your distro. DXVK indeed needs a setup after its installed from your package manager.
Needed DX12, used Lutris which supplied with that. You can also use proton to run it (I havent personally tested this)
What was not tested
Some more functions in adobe which I havent listed, maybe the less commonly used ones.
Licensing, Adobe software is pretty too overpriced to even manage to get a license. With most of the adobe software failing to launch on wine, I do feel it might not work.
Please let me know if you face any other issues by either the comments here, or you can just hop on to any platform of your choice listed on my site baalajimaestro.me
