Default Photoshop & Illustrator on Linux

All who switched to Ubuntu/Debian Linux and missing the performance of Photoshop and Illustrator, here is a working version of both:

1. Install Wine 2.x and winetricks

2a. For Photoshop install:
2b. For Illustrator install:
3. Use
to set the machine to Windows 7

4. Download these files here:
And extract both folders to /home/<youruser>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/

5. Have fun using Photoshop cc (which is still worlds faster than Krita, Gimp and Paintstorm) and Illustrator cs6:
Start Photoshop with: wine /home/<youruser>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Photoshop CC Portable 2017/Photoshop.exe

For Illustrator:wine /home/<youruser>/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator CS6/Support Files/Contents/Windows/Illustrator.exe

6. Say thanks and do not cry for cc2018 versions....

According to this YouTube video, you can install Photoshop CC 2015, Illustrator CC 2015 and apparently ANY CC 2015 app...

It walks you through it step by step and has links below the video for all scripts and what have you...

Now what it doesn't show you is how to crack it you might wish to figure that part out. If it's as simple as putting in already cracked AMTLIB.DLL files, then we're in business...I haven't tested this myself yet, but others in the YouTube channel have.
