When I try running Photoshop CS3 after installing it following this tutorial, I got

enter image description here

Also I noticed that

jiewmeng@JM:/works/tmp/adobe$ winetricks msxml6 gdiplus gecko vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 msxml3 atmlib ... vcrun2005 install completed, but installed file /home/jiewmeng/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/winsxs/x86_Microsoft.VC80.MFC_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.5592_x-ww_e87e0bcd/mfc80.dll not found

I am thinking thats a problem?

Winetricks will solve that for you.

sudo apt-get install winetricks

Then search winetricks for mfc80:

winetricks dlls list | grep mfc80

It will output something like:

vcrun2005                Visual C++ 2005 libraries (mfc80,msvcp80,msvcr80) (Microsoft, 2011) [downloadable]

Just install the winetricks "package" it wants you to install with:

winetricks <package>

which in this case, would be:

winetricks vcrun2005

I got something like vcrun2005 already installed, skipping but I notice that the out put of winetricks dlls list | grep mfc80 has mfc80 in red – Jiew Meng May 9 '11 at 1:42

Download the file from here: - and place it in the location where it's required (I'm guessing ~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows unless you have a custom directory).
