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?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet. For help making this question more broadly applicable, see the FAQ.
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
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.
