I got my Adobe Photoshop 7 running very well on Ubuntu 8.04 Linux. Previously I tried to install CS3 version of Photoshop, but after many issues was not able to install it on Ubuntu. Here is how you can get your Photoshop 7 running on Ubuntu 8.04.

Step 1: Install Wine
On Terminal:

$ sudo apt-get install wine
Step 2: Copying Photoshop program files from Windows.
First of all, you will need to install Photoshop 7 on Windows. After installing it on Windows, create a 'Adobe' directory in "/home/YOURNAME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files".

From windows, copy the Photoshop installed directory from “c:\Program Files\Adobe” to “/home/YOURNAME/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe” in Ubuntu.

Step 3: Importing registry.
In your Windows box, type “regedit” in the command-line and export the whole “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Adobe/” to “adobe.reg.

If your Ubuntu box has as default charset ascii and your Windows box has ucs-2 then on terminal type:
$ sudo recode ucs-2..ascii adobe.reg
After you converted your adobe.reg file, type:
$ sudo wine regedit adobe.reg
Step 4: Create a Launcher to launch Photoshop.
Crete a new launcher on your Desktop and set command to:
wine "c:\Program Files\Adobe\Photoshop 7.0\Photoshop.exe"

That's it.

Have you noticed the hand-postures which I'm talking about ? Is there any different in that from person to person or any fact behind that? Just notice and think about that. How'z your posture look a like? What I guess is, these postures can tell a little bit about a person, don't know whether any survey has been done for this thing so far.

Well, there is a lot difference between Steve and Bill, their postures are difference as well. What to tell about President Barack Obama, he is having a posture of powerful man. When he does that, he make sure that all fingers of a hand are visible. What Bill is doing? nothing special. Is mine like Steve's? is it? I guess yes :). Don't know what Nirav Mehta's posture is telling. As far as I know him, its difficult to tell about him. His all fingers are closed. Sachin & Obama almost same. One thing is common between all of them, all of them are geek. I would like to collect more photos of a person doing specially this postures. Some of them are Narendra Modi, Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachhan, Sam Pitroda, Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel. Please share such postures with me.
