Does anyone know if Adobe CS products (for Windows) work on Linux? I want to convert my laptop to use Ubuntu but I'm not sure if it will work on it.

Cheers!

I'm pretty sure the adobe products do not work with linux yet, unfortunately. There is a product, Gimp think? that is similar though.

Ahh. I had no luck getting info from the Adobe website. I have the whole Adobe package, so I guess I will be sticking with Windows then *doh*

You can use them in Linux using WINE, but it's probably going to run pretty slow.

Just use GIMP, or dual-boot :)

There's always VMWare, especially now they've released the 'VMWare Player' which is free and enables you to run previously setup virtual machines.

I've run Photoshop through VMware and I'm pretty sure that Crossover office will run it.

It was Photoshop CS 8.0, I believe.

Wine is pretty tricky. It's not as easy to set up as people may try to make it seem. I tried Photoshop CS 8 and Flash MX and neither of them would run. I tried both installing them through wine and taking the installed files and putting in the reg keys. Neither worked.

As this is related to Photoshop, more so than Linux, I think it can stay just here :)

Yes, it's about getting Photoshop running on Linux, but it's going to serve a more useful purpose in a forum related to Photoshop & digital art/drawing.

Gimp is a good replacement, the more I use it the more I like it: http://www.gimp.org. There are tons of good tutorials on it too: http://graphicssoft.about.com/od/gimptutorials/

GIMP works. I've used PhotoShop with VMWare on kubuntu. Works ok, but the whole process seems to use a bit of RAM.
