Affinty for Linux - is it possible?

Recommended Posts

Imagine posssiblity of using Affnity on Linux. Nobody takes Linux seriously, because you can't do real graphics on it with a real dedicated program (Adobe/Affinity) - Gimp doesn't count. Mac OS and Windows are systems designed for productivity. But that would change if by some miracle the Affinity package was converted to Linux.

I literally just starting running Affinity Photo 2 on Linux just fine a week ago using ElementalWarrior's WINE fork.

Assuming you're a seasoned user simply swap out the URL's in `wine-git` PKGBUILD if you are using Archlinux and it runs just fine.

I've only poked at it a few hours. But having never been a Affinity user before it does just fine.

Or just follow the guide on the post above ^^.

+1 to Linux support, even if it's officially through WINE.

Some 3d pipelines use Linux extensively (Houdini, Mari, Blender, and a few others have Linux variants), but there's no good native graphic and vector editing tools. Some competition from Krita and Inkscape. No competition in DTP, unless Sphinx counts 😄
