Photoshop 7 Desktop shortcut on Mint

This is an example, which, works pretty well – Photoshop 7 shows up in the gnome menu under “Graphics”, etc. This file should be copied to /usr/share/applications and should be owned by the non-privileged user.



Note: Again, if you copy this file to /usr/share/applications it will appear in the gnome menu and can be added to docky.

Here’s an older package I put together, for download.
Here’s an updated set of examples.

Weird issue with Docky and Photoshop

In short: in order to place shortcuts for both Photoshop 7 and PhostoshoCS2 on the Docky they must (1) have different entries in the “Name” field (not surprising), and, (2) be dragged and dropped onto Docky from /usr/share applications – I dunnoe why. Otherwise, both will use the Photoshop 7 icon.

You can find the complete documentation of all the options and how to use them,here. The site also lists how you can troubleshoot MBR problems when you cannot boot into the operating system. Although in such situations, you must have a way to boot from a CD, USB drive or (ahem..) floppy disk and be able to run MBRWizard. Check out how to make your own Windows Live CD, MBRWizard would be a nice utility to have on your live CD.

MBRWizard is a great tool to have everything is working fine, as well as when you need to fix MBR issues. You must have your favorite tools to jumpstart a problematic computer. We would love to hear about them so tell us in the comments.
