Errors while running the photoshop in wine and install windows system fonts

After installed the Photoshop CS2 with wine in Linux mint 17, tried to open a psd file. But the photoshop crashed with the message “Unable to continue because of a hardware or system error“. After wasting 2 hours got a solution to fix it. Let sort out the process step by step:

  • Hold down all three Ctrl+Alt+Shift buttons
  • While keeping those button held, just open Photoshop or a file that opens with Photoshop
  • As Photoshop loads, you should get a prompt asking if you would like to “delete the Photoshop settings file”
  • Off-course click yes

Is that solved my issue? Yes, after that i was able to open Photoshop. But sort out a new issue!

When i try to open a PSD files that was created on Windows system, the software shows error – “Could not complete your request because of a program error” and I am unable to reopen the PSD files. So, after googling few minutes i got a solution that is to install Windows system fonts. To install windows system fonts, execute the following command:

and then (to make sure font cache is regenerated) :

It works for me and for future reference just blog this as a note!
Hope this helps!
