I have wine and winetricks installed on my Ubuntu 14.04LTS

wine --version
wine-1.7.30

winetricks --version
20140302

I'm trying to install Photoshop CS6 on my Ubuntu using wine.

When I run this command:

winetricks atmlib gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1 vcrun2008 ie6 fontsmooth-rgb gecko

Why I still getting Gecko install error?

------------------------------------------------------
Please install gecko in /usr/share/wine per http://wiki.winehq.org/Gecko.  http://winezeug.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/install-gecko.sh is an easy script to do that.  Then you should never need to do 'winetricks gecko' again.

This is the result of ls -l on /usr/share/wine:

ls -l /usr/share/wine

  • Ok. Thank you so much. Error is still there but photoshop is installed and working fine for me. – S.Yavari Nov 16 '14 at 6:44

PlayOnLinux supports Adobe Photoshop cs6.

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.
