PhotoLine, Ubuntu & Wine

Post by pkr1979 » Fri 13 Mar 2020 21:59

Hi all,

I've been running PL on my macbook... but as I need more power+speed, and Im not that keen to pay what apple asks for their products Im getting a pc that I intend to run with Ubuntu. I've never used Wine so Im curious to know if there is anything I need to be aware of, and how I install PL on a Ubuntu run pc with Wine?

Cheers
Peter

After installing wine, run winecfg to make sure it is working; you can also set the windows version as it seems to matter with some programs.

For a straight PL installation, run
wine pl2200.exe [path and name of the installer]

You can make separate “wine bottles” which will be contained in their own folders, easy to delete when you are done with them, such as for beta versions. The default folder is ~/.wine; you can make a new one by running something like
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_pl22.40b1 wine pl2200.exe [installation folder will be ~/.wine_pl22.40b1].

Everything works except scripting; there is no windows script host.

Peter,

I'm interested in this question as well due to very similar reasons as yourself. I wonder if Russell or another experienced person has any experience with whether the ColorPerfect plug-in will work within a PhotoLine/Wine installation?

I am not a ColorPerfect expert, but I just loaded a raw file using PhotoLine 22.02 and ColorPerfect 2.25 on Linux Mint 19.1. But due to my limited knowledge of ColorPerfect, I don't know if everything works flawlessly.

If you know ColorPerfect better, maybe you could try it yourself and tell us.

I checked and the ColorPerfect plug-in does appear to work without an issue.

I was installing PL on a new hard drive and thought this might be useful. During installation, don't bother creating a desktop shortcut, it won't work in Linux. To create a menu or desktop launcher, use the following command:
wine "/home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/PhotoLine/PhotoLine.exe"
and the attached icon.

Here is the text of a desktop launcher:

[Desktop Entry]
Version=1.0
Type=Application
Terminal=false
Icon=/home/username/.icons/PhotoLine.png
Name=PhotoLine
Exec=wine "/home/username/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/PhotoLine/PhotoLine.exe"

(Be sure to make it executable.)

I now have PhotoLine running well under Pop OS / Wine (GNOME desktop environment)

I'm also buying a Linux laptop, and looking to run PL under wine (probably with Xubuntu). For those of you who are taking this approach, how well does PL work under wine, on a scale 1-10? (10 = fully functional as on a Windows box, 1 = does run at all)?

Is there any degree to which the wine users are "supported" by the PL team?

And the final question: any chance of a native Linux build?
