1. Downloaded photoshop cs6 and extracted it.
  2. Went to playonlinux > Graphics > Photoshop CS6
  3. On browse, linked the set-up.exe and clicked on next to install photoshop

But I got the following error:

Error in POL_Wine_InstallVersion Unable to find version: 4.2

None of the tutorials I find online have mentioned this issue related to 4.2. Also, they seem to use old wine and it seems to work just fine.

Please help.

My system info is:

  • Laptop Model: Dell Inspiron i7 7559
  • Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS
  • Memory: 7.7 GiB
  • Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-6700HQ CPU @ 2.60GHz × 8
  • Graphics: GeForce GTX 960M/PCIe/SSE2
  • GNOME: 3.28.2
  • OS type: 64-bit

I got the same error so I added the repository in order to download the latest version of PlayOnLinux.

How to update PlayOnLinux?

wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O - | sudo apt-key add -
sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_maverick.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux

It then updated Wine and downloaded and installed the necessary dependencies for me.

However it didn't work first time, I then had to go to the following link to get the updated installer.

I now have it running on PopOs 18.10. Shame the pressure sensitivity on my tablet doesn't work but hey, you can't have it all.
