PhotoShop 7


This might not be the best place to ask this, but any Linux user who uses photoshop will have this issue. I installed photoshop in wine and it works just fine, the only caveat is that it uses the alt key for some essential functions, and so does KDE. I can (and have) changed the alt key it KDE to move windows, but after years this is really annoying. What I was wondering is if there is a way to change the alt key in photoshop to something else, like the win key?
thanks

My guess is no, but you could check the preferences.

Do I understand correctly that you can change the KDE mapping and PS will work normally?

Yeah, PS uses the alt key in conjunction with the mouse, so it will just drag the window instead of using the rite tool. So I had to change the alt key dragging in KDE. There is nothing in the PS preferences.
