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.
