Windows Apps in Ubuntu! [Wine]

6 04 2008

Have some “Windows-only” that you really need but don’t want to actually have to run windows – like a copy of Adobe Photoshop?. Don’t want to dual-boot just to use it? Look no further than to Wine for all your needs. All you have to do is pop in the disk, find the Setup.exe file and double click it (once Wine is installed). To install Wine, simply type in:

sudo apt-get update

sudo aptitude install wine

wget http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks; sh winetricks corefonts vcrun6

Once Wine is installed, feel free to see what other applications will work with it too. If you don’t want to use the trial-and-error method, there’s a list up on the Wine Wiki that has a humongous database of most of the apps that will run on it – some better than others.

My experience installing Photoshop 6 was flawless, 100%. All I had to do was install Wine, click the Setup.exe file and I was on my way.

On a side note: Does anyone have any knowledge as to how to install drivers for the Wacom Bamboo tablet for Ubuntu?
