Issues with Photoshop CS6 on Linux Mint 20

Post by heatherfeather01 » Thu Aug 06, 2020 1:05 pm

I've used Photoshop CS6 on other versions of Linux in the past, and I've never noticed this subtle issue until now.

I've had other issues in the past, but they weren't as apparent as this one. Any time I right click a tool, I expect to see a pop up with other tools or perhaps more options for that tool, but instead it shows my desktop, Like this:

I'm using the latest version of winehq-staging, with a 32 bit prefix and I'm using the following winetricks:

Code: Select all

atmlib gdiplus msxml3 msxml6 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 corefonts tahoma fontsmooth-rgb
I feel like I may be missing something here, so I'd love to hear what I'm missing

I also face this issue since Linux Mint 19. (currently on Linux Mint 20) It worked fine upto version 18.
Any inputs appreciated.. thanks.

There seems to be a workaround for this, albeit not a perfect one.

If you go to Playonlinux window -> Select Photoshop -> Configure -> Select Wine tab -> Select Configure Wine -> Select Graphics tab & Select emulate Virtual desktop.
Tools will show normally.
