  3. After starting photoshop.exe
    I get a blank license agreement
    No scroll option
    And if I hit Accept it outlines the button but goes no where

    I changed the config to windows XP as your additional instructions. Still no further

  10. When i start the PhotoshopPortable.exe their is only a short time the blue Starting-Picture of Photoshop and after it crashes.
    I deleted the adobe_epic.dll and copied the two dll s to the system32 directory and added the gdiplus.dll to the application in the wine Configuration

    Posted by Luncher | February 10, 2010, 13:49
    • i added the application into the configuration again and now the blue picture is shown but it is still there. The System-Monitor Shows the process (Photoshop.exe) as Zombie

  14. This is amazing! worked fine after removing the agreement dll file. I sometimes get an issue with the top menus not disappearing after a selection is made. Anyone have any top tips to stop this? Im thinking it might be some animation setting or something similar in wine??

    latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on

  23. I like how you leave key bits of information so that it makes any gramatical sense, especially for new people… Aren’t tutorials supposed to explain things for those that don’t understand how to accomplish something?

    Huh… Just a thought.

    We wouldn’t want to to waste someone’s time for about an hour trying to find out what the heck you might be talking about.

    Posted by Blah blah blah | April 24, 2010, 01:48
  24. How come your fonts look okay and mine don’t?
    also what bothers me is that brush cursors look totally weird and you basically have to guess how big your brush is and stuff like that. Is there any way to fix that?

    Posted by Ars_latina | April 28, 2010, 09:39
  25. Followed the steps and got it to work with 9.10 32bit but text tool is not working. Has anyone resolved this. Any help ia much appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  26. 10.04 64x, runs and works, type tool doesn’t.

    Posted by Korvin | May 28, 2010, 03:08
    • If anyone can find me a fix for this, go ahead. I’ve added atmlib.dll to the libraries and made sure it was native. Still the problem persists.

      Posted by Korvin | May 28, 2010, 03:45
  27. How about using a normal font?
