Things you need:

Wine 0.9.54
� An Original Photoshop CS2 CD

Step 1: Install and configure Wine

If you don't have Wine installed, here's how to get the latest version:

1. Open a terminal (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) and paste the following commands (one by one - hit ENTER after each one):

wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -

sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

sudo apt-get update

Then close the terminal window.

2. Go to Applications -> Add/Remove, make sure you select the "All available applications" option in the upper-right side of the window, search for wine and install it. When it's done, close the window.

3. Hit ALT+F2 and paste in the following command:

wine iexplore

Click 'Install' when prompted and when you'll see the "Wine Internet Explorer" window and WineHQ website, then you can close it.

4. Search on Google for the Tahoma font with the following string:

tahoma filetype:ttf

Save it on your desktop, then move it to the Wine fonts folder (full path -> /home/yourusername/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts).

Tip: To see the .wine folder, go to View -> Show Hidden Files option in your home directory.

Step 2: Install Photoshop CS2

Insert your Photoshop CS2 CD in the optical drive and a folder should appear after a few seconds. Go to the "Adobe Photoshop CS2" directory, right click on the setup.exe file and choose the Open with "Wine Windows Emulator" option. The Photoshop installer will pop-up and I guess you know what to do now.

When the installation is over, you will find the Adobe Photoshop CS2 and Adobe ImageReady CS2 shortcuts under the Wine entry in your Start Menu.
