I am having a problem installing Photoshop CS6 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS. So far, I have tried following the thread with no success: How can I install photoshop CS6 on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS?

The installation of wine does not pose a problem. However, installing the atmlib library with winetricks (winetricks -q atmlib) does not seem to work, as the error message reads:

Downloading http://download.microsoft.com/download/E/6/A/E6A04295-D2A8-40D0-A0C5-241BFECD095E/W2KSP4_EN.EXE failed

Trying to install CS6 by running the set-up.exe file with wine gives me the error: "Installation failed, installer failed to initialize."

Currently Gimp is not an alternative to Photoshop. Please advise, as using Windows causes severe headaches...


Manually install the latest version of Winetricks:

cd /usr/bin
sudo rm -f ./winetricks
sudo apt install wget
sudo wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks

Then run the winetricks command again.
