|Not only can you install Photoscape on Fedora, we made it easy for you!|
In this case, I'm installing PhotoScape on the all new Fedora 21 - which so far is honestly the coolest linux destro I've ever test driven, but that's a different story.
The first step to putting Photoscape's magic on Fedora is to install Wine (if you haven't already done so). In order to do this, simply open a terminal window and type or copy paste:
howto@blogofbenjamin:~$sudo yum update
howto@blogofbenjamin:~$sudo yum install wineNext, you'll need to install WineTricks. To do this, simply type or copy paste:
howto@blogofbenjamin:~$winetricks msi2Next, install gdiplus:
howto@blogofbenjamin:~$winetricks gdiplusFinally, install the Microsoft 2008 Visual C++ Libraries:
howto@blogofbenjamin:~$winetricks vcrun2008Now either open the wine configuration from the applications menu or run the following in terminal:
howto@blogofbenjamin:~$winecfgClick the Libraries tab, select msi, click Edit, then tick Bulletin then Native and click Apply.
Now (still in Libraries) select gdiplus, click Edit, tick Native, then Bulletin and click OK.
