Photoshop CS2 on Linux

This is not Mac Pro specific. Tested on Ubuntu 7.10, using the Photoshop CS2 30-day trial.

  1. First you have to install wine. If you already have, make sure you have at least version 0.9.46.
    sudo apt-get install wine
  2. Start winecfg, so your .wine directory gets set up in your home directory
  3. Change into the virtual c drive
    cd ~/.wine/drive_c
  4. Download the official 30-day trial of Photoshop CS2 trial from here and put it into the ~/.wine/drive_c directory
  5. Run the downloaded .exe, which will unzip all the contents
    wine Photoshop_CS2.exe
  6. Start the setup
    wine /home/miklos/.wine/drive_c/Photoshop\ Tryout/Photoshop\ CS2/Setup.exe
  7. After the setup has finished, start Photoshop
    wine /home/miklos/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Adobe/Adobe\ Photoshop\ CS2/Photoshop.exe
  8. Done!
