Photoshop CC v19 installer for Linux

This bash script helps you to install Photoshop CC version 19 on your Linux machine using wine behind the scene and sets some necessary components up for the best performance

:rocket: Features

:warning: Requirements

1- use a 64bit edition of your distro

2-make sure the following packages are already installed on your Linux distro wine wine64 winetricks md5sum

if they are not already installed you can install them using your package manager for example in arch Linux

sudo pacman -S wine winetricks

3- make sure you have enough storage in your /home partition about 5 GiB

1 GiB will be free after installation

also you can install photoshop in diffrent directory

4- make sure you have an internet connection and about 1.5 Gib traffic to download photoshop and its components

:computer: Installation

the installer scripts use a virtual drive of wine and makes a new winprefix for photoshop

first of all, you need to clone the repository with this command:

git clone https://github.com/Gictorbit/photoshopCClinux.git
cd photoshopCClinux

then you can easily run setup.sh script to install photoshop cc on your Linux distro

chmod +x setup.sh

you can use -d to specify the installation path, and -c for the cache directory. for example:

./PhotoshopSetup.sh -d /mnt/myfiles/photoshop


./PhotoshopSetup.sh -d /mnt/myfiles/photoshop -c /mnt/cache

when no options are given, the installer script will use the default path, the uninstaller script and others will detect your custom path so there is no problem, I recommend using the -d option and having the default cache directory. this feature is currently being tested, and will be added to setup.sh later


during installation please pay attention to the script messages

NOTE : make sure OS version in wine is on windows 7

installer script use winetricks to install necessary components

:wine_glass: wineprefix Configuration

if you need to configure the wineprefix of photoshop you can use winecfg.sh script just run the command below

chmod +x winecfg.sh

:hammer: Tools

:sparkles: Liquify Tools as you know photoshop has many useful tools like Liquify Tools.

if you get some errors while working with these tools, It may because of the graphics card.

photoshop uses the GPU to process these tools so before using these tools make sure that your graphics card (Nvidia, AMD) is configured correctly in your Linux machine.

The other solution is you can configure photoshop to use your CPU for image processing. to do that, follow the steps below:
  • go to edit tab and open preferences or [ctrl+K]
  • then go to the performance tab
  • in the graphics processor settings section, uncheck Use graphics processor

:camera: Adobe Camera Raw

another useful adobe software is camera raw if you want to work with it beside photoshop you must install it separately to do this, after photoshop installation run cameraRawInstaller.sh script with commands below:

chmod +x cameraRawInstaller.sh

then restart photoshop.you can open it from Edit >>Preferences >> Camera Raw

NOTE1: the size of camera raw installation file is about 400MB

NOTE2: camera raw performance depends on your graphic card driver and its configuration

:hotsprings: Uninstall

to uninstall photoshop you can use the uninstaller script with commands below

chmod +x uninstaller.sh
