I fixed this a while ago on my old computer but I bought a new notebook recently and all versions of Photoshop crash on text input. What is causing this?

Is your version of photoshop supported by wine? –  Alvar Oct 22 '11 at 12:03

I know how you feel, Earl. For those with a similar question, there is a tutorial here: http://ubuntudoitall.blogspot.com/2009/09/running-photoshop-cs4-with-wine-finally.html

Thankyou :-) I actually had to run a simple command something about libs or whatever but thankyou for this it really helped work out a few kinks! –  Earl Larson Jul 7 '11 at 21:51

Is your version of Photoshop listed here? If not then it's not supported and you can not expect it to work.

This looks like your version (CS4), it's not supported anymore.
