    Photoshop and WINE

    When I try to install Photoshop using WINE, it says I don't have "JScript" (or something like that).

    I've seen online tutorials on getting Photoshop on Ubuntu, but all the ones I've seen just talk about pushing Photoshop from your Windows partition to your Linux partition.

    I don't have Windows at all, just Ubuntu Linux on this computer. I can't do what I've seen in those tutorials.

    How can I install Photoshop on Linux? What is this "JScript" thing it keeps complaining about? How can I get this "JScript" thing? What do I do? Help?

    I know you can install java on Ubuntu, I would guess that it is asking for Java script. I don't know if that will help but it's a start.

    Yeah, JScript means Javascript.

    Why would Photoshop complain about no JavaScript when trying to install?
    JavaScript is scripting for browsers, not applications (I think).

    Did you try it? Who knows why it needs it, but it sure seems to. The real question is whether or not installing the Java environment in Ubuntu will have any effect on wine. I'm no wine expert so I don't know if Ubuntu's environment will have any effect on the virtual wine environment. Either way it's worth trying as a first step.

    Wine is no virtualisation software. If your PC is powerful enough, try VirtualBox or VMWare.

    I have no idea why you got that error but installing photoshop is relatively fair in wine.

    Re: Photoshop and WINE

    javascript is a scripting language which, apart from some syntax and vocabulary similarities to Java, has nothing to do with Java itself. Nothing. jscript is yet another scripting language that looks a lot like javascript, but isn't identical to it. You can think of jscript as Microsofts Incompatible Javascript.

    just a hunch : maybe photoshop expects to find Windows Scripting Host - a multi-language script parser/interpreter/engine that's present on every Windows system since win98.
    Why Photoshop would want that, or jscript, is beyound me.

    I have this same problem. It has a simple solution: install jscript on ubuntu. Can it be installed through wine or regardless of wine? We should be able to install jscript on ubuntu. Someone has gotta know how...
