Photoshop CS crashing when opening complex PSD files using Ubuntu/wine

I installed the new Photoshop CS6 trial version on Ubuntu using Wine 1.5.5, and had a strange error when I tried to open a complex psd file with multiple layers etc, Photoshop would just crash.

As much as I hate the way email lists look when searching for something, this time they were the only source I could find with the solution for this annoying problem.


The solution is quite simple:

Copy atmlib.dll from windows partition windows/system32 to wine's system32 directory [usually /home/[user]/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32]. (It is needed for cooltype.dll)

Found in this list: http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-bugs/2010-August/247332.html talking about this issue in CS4. I am using CS6, so I assume this  will work for any CS version.
