Frankly your best bet is to install a (legal?) copy of windows under Virtualbox, and install it in that.

Wine is good for fairly simple programs, but graphics stuff needs more.

I run a 3D cad and 2D drawing package like that under a very old XP license

You'd think that, but both Dreamweaver 8 and Paint Shop Pro 8 run fine on Wine on my 32-bits Mint 17.3.

most Adobe products run rather badly under ./wine.

they were written for the M$ system, & ./wine can't supply some of it's hardware requirements.

I'm trying to help, and for that reason, I'm trying to find out whether you have seen actual information that may help... and if so, where.

I've simply installed Wine, then opened the .exe file to install my version of Dreamweaver. Those were all the steps I needed to take. But my case is not your case.

What have you tried so far and what happened?

No thanks, I don't like watching videos.

Have you tried the workaround listed on the WineHQ page for the CS6 version?

I don't like videos either. Seems everytime I Google something these days, a video pops up.

There are some really good answers at the top of this thread. 1. Use Windows in a virtual box. 2. Use LM 32 bit, which is really easy to do. 3. Check the WineHQ forum, which is lively and active, by the way, and filled with experienced winos.

I had issues running Age of Mythology in Wine, but got it working after some tweaking, upgrading and removal of copy protection. It froze every so often, but that's what automatic backups are for. The thing is that Wine isn't supposed to work. You're cheating Microsoft, in a way. You're stealing their lunch by using an emulator, Wine. So any results you get at all are like a gift. I'd just run LM 32 bit and go from there. If it works, that's really fantastic, and hat's off to Wine's devs for reverse engineering.
I run both Windows 10 and Linux Mint 18 in dual boot with two SSDs and have other rigs running various versions of Linux. My blog.

I worked at installing CS6 for over a week. I give up :x Even if you get it to run you will find some of the shortcut keys won't function. I found the free legal copy of windows 7 is the best option
