    Will Wine run Photoshop 5.0?

    Will Wine run Photoshop 5.0? I've been trying to get Wine configured on my 12.04 laptop and have been so far unsuccessful. So the only reason I'm going through this is because I need to be able to run Photoshop 5.0. Gimp is great but it's a real challenge to work CMYK graphics with it, and that's what I need PS for.

    Anybody have any success with this? I've found lots of comments and posts on using CS2, but I have and need to be able to run good old (and I mean OLD) PS 5.0.

    Have you tried PlayonLinux? They can do PS4, maybe try using that install for PS5.
    To install POL:
    wget -q "" -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install playonlinux
    This will add the PlayOnLinux respiratory and get the newest version.

    as you can see here CS5 has reported gold rating, but only with certain version/distro combo

    eventhough last rating is garbage.

    playonlinux is just a GUI forntend for wine. but there are some scripts included to help install certian programs. i would hold my breath but you oculd try with the tested distro/wine version

    if you mean version 5 (it has silver rating), while version 7 has platinum:
