How can I install photoshop cs6 on ubuntu 14.04? Anyone help me ?
Step 1. Install the Wine Team Ubuntu PPA
First start by installing Wine. By the way, it's a utility to install windows apps in linux :
open the Terminal and :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install wine1.7 winetricks
Step 2. Using winetricks to get install dependencies for Photoshop CS6
Now that we have the most recent build of wine, we can get started on fetching the necessary build packages to run the Photoshop installer.
Here’s the command to issue and pull those dependencies
winetricks atmlib gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 ie6 fontsmooth-rgb gecko
If a few errors pop-up, don’t worry – chances are this install will still work.
Step 3. Running the Photoshop CS6 installer
Now that you have all dependencies required to run Photoshop CS6, you can now run the Adobe setup. Either right click Setup.exe, or from the terminal:
cd /home/user/path/to/installer wine Set-up.exe
If everything worked as intended, you are now done. Photoshop should install like any other program via wine. It should even automatically appear in your programs list!
Install PlayOnLinux like so:
wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add - sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_trusty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install playonlinux
After the POL installation has finished, click on
install and, search for
Adobe Photoshop cs6, click install, and follow the setup wizard.
From the Adobe PhotoShop cs6 support page:
NOTE: This application does NOT work on Intel graphics (at least not that I have seen). Nvidia and AMD graphics should be used.
A more general answer:
Install Virtualbox from Ubuntu Software Center.
Alternatively visit the displayed "Developer Web Site" and get the very latest (look for Ubuntu *.deb files). Please note that this requires a more manual installation method not described here - link https://www.virtualbox.org/.
Note that "VirtualBox Extension Pack" is required for faster USB (2.0+) speeds.
With Virtualbox you will be able to install full versions of Windows versions
(prior to "10" supported fully at this writing, VB 5.0.2).
This allows to create "Virtual machines", each running a "guest OS" on your Linux-based "host OS".
Most USB devices will be fully functional, others may depend on actual support from Virtualbox; expect Screen/Color calibrators, Image scanners, Barcode scanners, Printers and so on to be fully or partly functional - issues may exist with specific brands or models.
Network is supported in a few alternative modes, file shares can be crated, clipboard works in both directions host to guest and vice versa.
Depending on settings it may be possible to run software in a mode that makes it appear as if it were on the Linux OS (look for: Seamless windows).
Recommended: Run Windows as a network isolated guest and skip the use of all antivirus and malware software - expect at least a 10% performance increase compared to a similar true machine due to this.
Photoshop is only available for Windows platform
But on linux you can use Windows software through
wine. So to use photoshop cs6 on ubuntu first install wine using
sudo apt-get install wine
Once it is installed, install photoshop using it.
