Running Photoshop under linux

Photoshop doesn't exist for Linux, but it is quite possible to run it with Wine.
Several versions of Adobe Photoshop run on Linux with Wine. Namely:
  • Photoshop 7
  • Photoshop CS2
  • Photoshop CS3 and CS4
  • Photoshop CS5

Note that, upon opening Photoshop, you may have a bug (no text displayed)

You should install the msttcorefonts package
sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

To be accessed by Wine:
cp -r /usr/share/fonts/truetype/msttcorefonts ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts
