I installed Wine

Recommended Posts

I don't have windows installed on another partition...is that a requirement. Is there a step by step guide as to what to do to get wine working?


Maybe a manual.


I really just want to use it temporarily with Photoshop until I learn how to use GIMP.

Well, I can give you some basic advice.

Just install the latest version from an RPM. The Wine version on the Mandrake 10.1 CDs is rather obsolete. I am uncertain about Mandriva 2005 LE.

Just use the console or a script to change the directory to your photoshop directory. Then type Wine and then your executable file. For example, "wine photoshop.exe" without the quotes of course.

As for saving and opening, well, the drives are a lot different than on windows. Your home directory is usually something like E:\ I think. The most important thing is you start the executable from its respective directory.
