Re: Photoshop CS 2 won't run in Wine [SOLVED]

Postby Dave M G on Wed May 08, 2013 2:15 am

I recently switched from Ubuntu to Linux Mint 14. When I was using Ubuntu, I ran Photoshop CS 2 reliably with Wine, on both my laptop and my desktop computers. Since moving to Mint, unfortunately Photoshop will never open, and I get an error that says "File not found".

I tried re-installing, and also installing into a custom directory, but that hasn't helped. I tried restarting the Wine server with wineserver -k, and rebooting, but neither helped.

I get the same error if I try to run Photoshop.exe from the command line, even if I'm in the directory where the file is and I can see it listed when I run an ls command. So I don't think this is a matter of the Photoshop.exe file not being found, it is some system file or Wine setting.

How can I get past this error and have Photoshop running consistently?

Thanks for any advice or help.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Have you considered using playonlinux? It has an install script for CS2 that works a treat.

I had never heard of Play On Linux before this, but I just installed it, and it seems to have got Photoshop up and running. Thanks for the tip!
