I'm quite new (or brand new) to Ubuntu.

I want to install my Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended. I have purchased a licensed copy.

I downloaded WINE and ran the start up through that. Everything ran smoothly until it actually started installing. It barely starts and I get an error message from the installation screen from Adobe Photoshop. Can anyone help?

Check out Wine's AppDB entry for Photoshop CS5

In the "Installs?" column it says "No, but has a workaround". Below you'll find some detailed instructions - try following them and see if it helps.
