How to run Adobe Premiere Pro 2024 on Wine (Linux)

Post by MattKC »

The following is instructions on getting the (currently) latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro 2024 running on Wine.

For reference, I'm using Arch Linux and Wine 8.20, however these instructions should work just as well on other distros too with a similar Wine version.

Installation

Unfortunately, Adobe Creative Cloud - i.e. the main installer hub for Adobe software - does not currently work on Wine. Thankfully, Adobe apps are not picky about running from the same place they were installed from, and can therefore be copied straight from a Windows install with few issues.
  1. Set up a Windows VM (or computer) if you don't have one already. Either Windows 10 or 11 should be fine.
  2. Install Adobe Creative Cloud and use it to install Premiere Pro.
    • This process will require an Adobe account, and may ask for a credit card even if you're only installing the free trial. A tool called CCStopper can be used to bypass the credit card check.
  3. Once Premiere Pro has finished installing, you'll now want to transfer the following folder from your Windows computer into your Wine prefix:

    Code: Select all

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Premiere Pro 2024
    
  4. You'll also need to install some Winetricks into your Wine prefix:

    Code: Select all

    winetricks dxvk corefonts
    
    • DXVK is technically optional, but much of Premiere's newer web-based UI won't render correctly without it, which makes it difficult or even impossible to navigate some areas.
    • Without "corefonts", Premiere will close on startup with "Unknown Error".
  5. After installing the Winetricks, you'll also need to transplant some DLLs manually from Windows too. Grab the following files from Windows and place them in your Wine prefix's "C:\Windows\system32" folder (overwriting where necessary):

    Code: Select all

    C:\Windows\system32\msxml3.dll
    C:\Windows\system32\msxml3r.dll
    
    • Installing "msxml3" through Winetricks will not work here. This seems to be because Winetricks only installs the 32-bit version of msxml3 while Premiere requires the 64-bit version.
  6. You'll need to add a DLL override for msxml3.dll. To do this, open "winecfg" (in your Wine prefix), browse to the "Libraries" tab, and add "msxml3" as a new override. It should be set to "native, builtin".
    Screenshot_20231115_225638.png
  7. Finally, you'll need to duplicate some DLLs in the "Adobe Premiere Pro 2024" directory. Specifically duplicate the following:

    Code: Select all

    icuin69.dll -> icuin.dll
    icuuc69.dll -> icuuc.dll
    
    • Make sure you duplicate these files into these new names and don't just rename them. Some parts of Premiere expect the old name and some expect the new name. Therefore you should copy/paste and rename the duplicate so both names are available.
  8. Premiere Pro should now launch! However it'll present you with a broken login page. At this time, I'm not sure if there's any way to get it to accept login information correctly. For this reason, you'll probably need to bypass this using GenP.
  9. Optionally, run the following Winetricks to improve Premiere Pro's appearance/user interface:

    Code: Select all

    winetricks gdiplus fontsmooth=rgb
    
  10. Done! If everything went correctly, you should now have a functional Premiere Pro 2024 build on Linux!
Known Issues

Currently an issue prevents Premiere Pro from using OpenCL, meaning regardless of your GPU's capabilities, Photoshop will use software rendering only. This means it will run somewhat slower than it otherwise would on the same hardware.

Photoshop currently has the same issue, and I'd like to try investigating this further at some point, but currently have no real information about why it happens or how to fix it.

I hope this tutorial was helpful, enjoy Premiering!

can confirm it works, kind of

first of all, the only version that worked for me is the v24.0.3.2 one, I got it from a website that shall I not mention, newer versions will most likely not work as I got an error about Wine unable to find the library "Windows.Data.Json.JsonObject", for anyone who's reading, if you're getting the same issue try to use the version I mentioned.

Everything works except that Adobe Premiere doesn't like the NVIDIA Linux Driver and will try to use software encoding instead, this will lead to an unstable program that will trigger high CPU percentages when doing certain things if you're doing really advanced editing, if you're just doing simple things then it should be okay. I'm not sure about AMD but I guess it would be the same issue, I don't know what's causing this and if there's a fix for it, I really hope there is.

Aside that it's really good but for me, I guess I will have to use Windows for premiere, anyways it's nice seeing premiere work on Linux, I approve

Issue fixed, apparently disabling an option on the Adobe Premiere settings (Preferences -> General -> Show system compatibility issues at startup) and installing this https://github.com/SveSop/nvidia-libs/r ... ag/v0.7.13 will fix the issue, now I can edit videos on Adobe Premiere, this is neat!

Since the merge of https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks/pull/2176, `winetricks msxml3` should be sufficient. (If it doesn't work, please let me know.)

Has someone managed to get this working on AMD?

The problems was resolved by running ```winetricks msxml3```

Unrelated but I have edited your posts to have images hosted here instead due to concerns about link rots. Please beware of it next time.
