Even if last post is a few months old, I didn't find any answer on the web, so I'm posting mine here.
Got it sorted after almost a half-day banging my head on my desk.
I had exact same symptoms :
- able to open Photoshop
- able to create and save files in any format (PSD included)
- able to open flattened files (jpg, png,...)
- but unable to reopen any PSD files created on Mac, Win nor Ubuntu.
So I installed Windows system fonts and it then worked like a charm :
$sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
and then (to make sure font cache is regenerated) :
My two cents are that Photoshop uses MS system fonts for displaying layers/options/paths info and/or other stuff.
Hope this helps !
