How To succesfully Install Photoshop CS3 (XP dlls required)

First off: don't expect this to work well.  Wine does not yet support Photoshop CS3.  Only read these instructions if you feel like fiddling around, not if you expect to get a working Photoshop.

OK, now that you know that Wine does not yet fully support Photoshop CS3, here's how I got it to install and run today with wine-1.1.6:

  1. Do 'wget && sh winetricks gecko gdiplus'
  2. Install Photoshop CS3 as normal by running its Setup.exe.

  3. Run Photoshop CS3 as normal, e.g.
    $ cd .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS3
    $ wine Photoshop.exe

That's it!  It runs very slowly, though.  Hats off to Jacek for fixing the installer!

I have had problems with the app's license manager giving up because the app was running too slowly. When this happens, you have to remove ~/.wine and reinstall.

ALT-Click keybinding and Compiz

Thanks to earther for the following email:

I was having problems with the Photoshop 7 ALT-Click keybinding in a new Debian install running Compiz.  I did the standard window manager tweak but it still didn't work properly.  Then I discovered an ALT-Click keybinding in the Compiz Window Management > Move Window > Initiate Window Move settings. I changed it to 'super' like in Gnome window management and voila, it seemed to get it working again in Photoshop. You might want to add that bit of info to the clone tool info on the Photoshop 7 page.

Every time I try to start Photoshop. I get this error: "Unable to continue because of hardware or system error. Sorry, but this error is unrecoverable."
