Hey everyone!

I have a question about this emulator that I heard of around the net to
run Photoshop. I seem not to be able to find it. :tazz:
Thanks!

I don't know about an emulator, but you might want to check you gimp, which is a photoshop type of program, but it is not an emulator.

Thanks for that emulator. So I see you can support more than Photoshop on Linux but also Office. Crazy!

A bit puzzled as to why you would want to run photoshop over an emulator when you have GIMP.....it does all the same stuff, is free *you have to admit $300 for a overglorified paint program is a bit much*, and most linux distro's have it on there already.

Added bonus is that they made a windows version and a Mac version, so no real need to pay Adobe :tazz:

by the way, for everyones information. i just tried running the demo version of photoshop cs2 on fedora core 4 using wine 0.9.8

no good. installer starts, but then when it gets to the final step, it fails, and gives you the message that the installation did not complete. (wine is set to emulate windows 2000 by the way)

i have seen other versions of photoshop run though, and i will test the slightly older photoshop cs soon. but again, no need to buy photoshop when theres the gimp, which i find easier and more powerful.
