Hi,

Welcome to LQ. Can you provide some more detail about this issue?

What version of Ubuntu?

How did you install wine?

Will other Windows programs open in wine?

I would use Gimp instead. Getting Wine and Photoshop working nicely can be an arduous task.

Depends on the version of PS. If you mean CS there are quite a number of tricks that need to be done.

Gimp is not a good choice in the current stable branch (2.6) for professional photographers, because it lacks 16 bit per channel support. This will change in version 2.8.

I would use GIMP, but it is not loading either. I am currently using Piknik just because i need to resize and do basics, and I hate keeping people waiting.

Are you trying to use GIMP through wine, or the native version in linux?

HNave you tried running GIMP through the terminal, to see if it's spitting out any errors? I had thought i had a program not starting either, but i had forgotten it required JACKED to be started first, there wasnt any indication from starting it within the environment though.

I'm on my windows partition now, but if you start a terminal session and enter whatever the name of the gimp loader is, you'll actually see the text output, it might give you an idea if you're missing something.
