The odds of being able to install cs4 or slim. Wine will work better with older versions. Is the tutorial for CS4? Also, when you run photoshop, you'll be running an exe, and I believe that is located in /home/micheal/.wine/program files/ or something like that.
Also, files and folders that begin with . are hidden, so press ctrl h to show them.
I'm trying to remember where the C:\ is located in wine. Basically, I would try removing then reinstalling wine, and then just get your exe, right click it, open with wine, and if the installer works, yay, and then find where it was created and try running it.
Also, use apt-get, not aptitude. e.g: sudo aptitude install msttcorefonts, but sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts. Thats just my opinion though.
Yeah, that tutorial was made for installing CS4. I mean, I would at least install CS3 or something, but problem is, I don't have a copy of it. I don't really know where to get CS3 but whatevs.
Also, the downloaded .EXE (ADBEPHSCS4_LS1.exe, I think) actually did work and extracted the files into the desktop. In those files is a Setup.exe, which I assume is the one you're talking about? If so, it's not in /home/michael/.wine/drive_c/program files/, it's in /home/michael/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/. And, I think "C:\" would be /home/michael/.wine/drive_c/ or /home/michael/.wine/dosdevices/c:/. So, I copied all the extracted files I had in the desktop (Adobe CS4 folder, on the screenshot) into /home/michael/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ and then went to Applications>Accessories>Terminal and used these commands in order (like the tutorial explains):
rm -r ~/.wine winecfg
chmod +x winetricks
./winetricks msxml6 gdiplus gecko vcrun2005 ie6
sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
I then copied Photoshop's atmlib.dll file into /home/michael/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/ and configured Wine's Library thing to override the atmlib.dll (which the tutorial said to do). I then used this command:
LANG=C wine Setup.exe
After that, it started doing some magic, the installer wizard began to load and check my system profile, and BAM. That damn error appears saying something unexpected happened and I need to contact Adobe support (which I doubt will help me in downloading Photoshop into Linux).
