Install Photoshop CS6 on Ubuntu 15.10

Photoshop CS6 on Ubuntu 15.10? One of the reasons too many Windows users are reluctant to try Linux is to familiarize them with the programs running in Microsoft's operating system. One of these programs is also Photoshop, which is really one of the few programs that does not have something equal in open source.Photoshop CS6

It should be noted here that new Linux users have a significant stake. They should get away from the logic of "I work with Linux but I still use Windows applications." Linux repositories have countless worthwhile open source applications that will meet all your needs.

This post is for those who have tried Gimp and all of its plugins but still need the Photoshop.

Let's see how we can install it on Linux.

Of course we will need a copy of Photoshop CS6. There are many versions of Photoshop on the internet, but we will use the "Repack" version which is around 340MB.

We are not going to publish the direct download link, but you can search for “Adobe Photoshop CS6 13.1.2 Extended Repack. "


Wine is a program that allows you to run Windows programs on Linux and Mac. We will install it Wine Team Ubuntu PPA, to ensure that our Wine is always up to date.

Open a terminal and run one of the following commands

sudo add-apt-repository ppa: ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine1.7

Install PlayOnLinux

PlayOnLinux is not required to run Photoshop, but it will save us from many bugs. It works by installing programs on a virtual drive, which will allow us to determine which version of Wine we need to run Photoshop. So we can use Wine in 32bit, even if our system is x64.

Download and install PlayOnLinux from the Ubuntu Software Center


Open PlayOnLinux. Click the "Install" button or Go to File -> Install.


Click the "Install non-listed program" button

Create a new virtual disk to save the program.

Name the disc as you wish, as long as it does not leave spaces in the name if it contains two words. In our case we named it "PhotoshopCS6"playonlinux 4

We will manually install a patched version of Wine because it does not contain an annoying bug that affects Photoshop.

For starters, use the Wine System versionplayonlinux 5in the 32 bit version because the 64 bit is not stable.playonlinux 6

Install the following packages:

playonlinux 7

After installing the packages, select the downloaded Photoshop.exe and run the installer.

The Photoshop installer will take you to the next steps. After installing the application you will need to create a shortcut on your desktop that will allow you to run Photoshop directly.

playonlinux 9

Create the icon on the desktop and after creating it, select "I do not want to make another shortcut" and click next.

At this point Photoshop is installed, but there is a bug that sometimes does not allow the brush to follow the mouse. This can be fixed by installing a patched version of Wine.

Return to the main PlayOnLinux window, select Photoshop, and then click Setup.

Click the "+" next to Wine - System to install the patced version of Wine, and then install the version "1.7.20-PhotoshopBrushes".

Try to open Photoshop to see if it works.

If you have a "runtime error" try changing your PlayOnLinux Wine compatibility to Windows 7. Follow the steps shown in the images below
