Hi,

Has anyone had any success installing Photo on a Linux machine using Wine.  I did manage to get FL Studio, a Windows music app, to run perfectly that way but have failed in a couple attempts to make Photo work.  Its a very quirky process and requires different work arounds for different Window apps.  Anybody tried Wine successfully?  Perhaps the developers can help???????

Thanks

Hello @bsolomon3000,

 

you could do a search across the forum. I can point you to two minor discussions on the topic that seem to indicate that it could be done but will not run smoothly and is not supported by the developers. See here:

Can I try to run it under wine?

Hi! I have had luck installing the trial version of affinity designer. However, running the application is a whole chapter on its own. I managed this feat by using the newest version on an arch-based distro. From my knowledge, I am the first to do this. I had some issues with dll-files and did not have any luck sorting it out
