Creative Cloud for PlayOnLinux

This script has not worked for some time, and since Adobe's newer installers use a form of embedded Internet Explorer that Wine doesn't support (and installing IE in the Wine prefix doesn't solve the issue), I don't think this will work anytime soon.

I'm leaving the code publicly available for reference, and I will accept any PRs that make it functional again, but I am done working on this. A newer version of the script without the PlayOnLinux dependency is available in the dev branch.

This is an install script for Adobe Creative Cloud, designed to be used with PlayOnLinux. The script sets up the Adobe Creative Cloud desktop program, which can be used to install and update Photoshop, Lightroom, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, and other apps.

A (free) Adobe ID is required. Most Adobe applications require a paid subscription.

How to use this script

  1. Download PlayOnLinux from your distribution's package manager (e.g. Ubuntu Software Center) or from the PlayOnLinux website
  2. Save the install script to your computer
  3. Open PlayOnLinux, go to Tools > Run a local script
  4. Select the install script you just downloaded

After the setup process is finished, you can open Adobe Creative Cloud from PlayOnLinux to download and install the apps you need. After you download an app, you can add a PlayOnLinux shortcut for it by clicking Adobe Application Manager in the app list, clicking Configure, and clicking Make a new shortcut from this virtual drive. Then look for the app you need, like Photoshop.exe, and add it.

Tip: Tooltips in Photoshop might not disappear automatically. You can turn off tooltips completely by going to Edit > Preferences > Tools and un-checking the Show tooltips box.

If the installer crashes, see the Troubleshooting page. If you still have issues, try the classic script.
