How install Lightroom 4 or 5 on Linux (Wine 1.7) Mint 17, Ubuntu etc.

September 8, 2019

If You have older wine version than 1.7 – uninstall it. Add ppa repository for latest wine version Run Your favourite package manager to install Wine 1.7 ie. SYNAPTIC Check Wine 1.7 or newer and winetricks. After instalation check wine version run “winetricks” from console and install packages Run Lightroom 4 or 5 installation. Now the files are unpacked When done, run setup32.exe. 64bit version not working. If You get message about “…that Your computer is running Windows Vista or later”, You need change wine configuration from Windows XP to Windows Vista or later. After instalation run LR from desktop icon. If everything went well, Ligtroom will start.

    I tried this on a fresh install of Mint 17 64 bit, exactly as you do in the video, but with Wine 1.7.27 and Lightroom 5.3. The installation of the 32 bit Lightroom starts, but then it stops with an error after a while, at "Status: Registering modules". Any idea why?

    I have Mint 17 on a laptop, will try this. I also have Adobe CS4, would be interesting to try that also.

    I've said for years that if the Adobe CS suite worked on Linux, I'd walk away from Windows and never look back. Maybe now is the time.
