How to make Adobe support Linux

Post by .Ne0 » Tue Oct 21, 2014 12:26 pm

New subject: How to fund a "3D SVG Animation" export plugin for Blender ?

Well, we have tried asking nicely, through petitions and Adobe's own forums, but Adobe doesn't care.
As every sane Business knows, Customer service should always be #1 priority.

Why ?
Because Customers can make doing Business feel like hell, and without Customers any Business is non-existent.
So, to get Adobe to support Linux, we can and need to take advantage of Adobe's subscription service.

Get Ready for Activism, Occupy Style !

How ?
There are two ways:

First Method:
  • Get subscription to Creative Cloud. Now you are a customer of Adobe.
  • Go create a support ticket for something like "Bug: (program name) not working on Linux". Note: Program name should be among the ones you subscribed for. You could create multiple tickets, one for each program not working on Linux.
  • When they say "We don't support Linux", you reply "then keep this ticket open until you do support Linux".
  • If they close the ticket, create another one.
  • If they block or ban your Creative Cloud account, register for another account with another email.
This method is meant to increase the number of "active" customer tickets talking about no Linux support.


Second method:
  • Get subscription to Creative Cloud for one month.
  • cancel the subscription before the 2nd month, because "Linux not yet supported".
  • then again subscribe in the 3rd month
  • cancel the subscription before the 4th month, because "Linux not yet supported".
  • Keep doing this until you can run the program on Linux. When asked why are you subscribing again, say "to see for myself whether the program is working on Linux"
  • If they block or ban your Creative Cloud account, register for another account with another email.
This method is meant to increase the number of customer "cancellations" due to no Linux support.


These methods require money, but they should also increase Adobe's cost of providing customer service.


Extra Email help:
GMX offers 10 emails under one account.
Google has multiple variations with dots(.) of the same email in a single account -- Example: open.source@gmail.com = opensource@gmail.com = o.pensour.ce@gmail.com

Basically no hope of driving Adobe to provide Linux OS services for their product lines
--even if a movie studio might have liked it, since they used a lot of Linux computers for animation..
  • As for the rest of the people, no chance..
It won't be a movement; after all Adobe could (as it's their business) cut anyone OFF from their services (cloud as you suggested), and not feel any affect from that action

Not that I miss Adobe anyway, especially for PDF files
--not only Linux but Windows and freeware/shareware for PDF edits exist and are quite functional enough
  • Whether or not they can match all the functions/features of Adobe's own product(s)
If I really need an adobe product, I could install a VM (Virtualbox) and run their application inside that VM under my Linux OS host

If the Matrix existed, we could just whisper into the wind and the transmission would evolve.
--but I also like the previous answer "a flea.." tripping around an Elephant

Don't think so black-and-white. Else I can state "Adobe fully supports Linux"; just as inane a comment as yours. Adobe does open source development on over a hundred projects (on GitHub and Sourceforge...); both their own projects and contributing to others' projects: http://www.adobe.com/open-source.html. They do support Linux actively on many projects. For example, if you're a web developer, Adobe Brackets is awesome as a web editor: http://brackets.io/

How hard are you going to fight someone to give them money?

Just don't support Adobe, problem solved.
Their a bad company so you are going to come up with a plan to force yourself to deal with them and shovel money at them?

Support alternatives instead.

So, what alternatives are there for Vector Animation ?
(Note: Synfig uses Bitmap, and is therefore Raster)

Inkspace is the best vector editor around I think. You can make your animation frames with Inkspace, and then make the animation in post-processing with another application (like GIMP, Blender, ImageMagick+FFmpeg, and so on), or you can do it in Inkspace (but cumbersome right now I believe) with manual editing (explained here http://wiki.inkscape.org/wiki/index.php/SVG_Animation).

That's the best policy. I agree :)

It will be available in the future.
But it will not be offline software but web browser based software.
Just log in adobe site and use photoshop, lightroom, illustrator etc.
MS office already begin this service even though it has only basic features now.

The previous replies in this topic are unrelated to the subject of the current thread. Ergo, they have been moved to their own thread found here. Please continue the discussion about Blender in the new thread.

I've never seen a legitimately purchased copy of the full Photoshop suite "in the wild".

Ever...and I've looked.

Corel is more likely to support linux.
It already has aftershot pro for linux.
Corel paint shop pro is much better. It has almost same features and much cheaper.
