What works

The program will install.

What does not

After installation and entering the serial number, ACDSee will not run from the icon. Through trial and error, I discovered that I can run ACDSee from the little icon in the taskbar, the camera manager that waits for the user to connect a camera. This is a feature of ACDSee 8.0.

However, once run, ACDSee will not display any format of picture. It is just a file browser, not a picture manager or photo editor. ACDSee cannot display JPEG or GIF files. In other words, it is crippleware. In order to use ACD, the developers require a user to use Windows, not Linux. The developers insist upon choosing which operating system their users must use. You will have to ask the developers of ACDSee why they made this fateful decision. Meanwhile, I opted to use Digikam instead. Perhaps in time, I will forget there ever was an ACDSee.

Additional Comments

ACDSee in Linux is inferior to all available picture viewers and managers. It is ranked at the very bottom of all available competition. The command-line is a better vehicle for viewing pictures than ACDSee.
