Ok... So being that I really love LightRoom, I'd really like to make it work on my new box but don't know how.

I've got installed and it executes but I run into a problem.

When opening, LightRoom is unable to open a catalog in "My Documents" for obvious reasons.

However, when I try to designate a directory in which the catalog should be created I receive the following error :

Lightroom Catalogs can not be opened on network volumes, removable storage, or read only volumes.

I have tried to create the catalog in my home directory, root directory, on a different hard drive... All with full read/write permissions. All to no avail.

Any suggestions or solutions?

Tried creating the "My Documents"-folder under "~/.wine/drive_c"?

When I use the "Explorer" that comes with LightRoom, it won't allow me to view ~/.wine/drive_c. Can't type in a directory location either.

I did create the directory, but not able to find it using the supplied BS Windows interface.

Mh, I can't even get Lightroom 2.3 to install, always gets interrupted somewhere in between (x64, wine-1.1.6).

I've got 2.2. I ran it initially to install in my home folder. I've since deleted it from there and tried to install it under ~/.wine/drive_c and it's still not wanting to work.

Have also tried moving the catalog to / with full permissions all to no avail.

Silly. I really don't want to use anything else.
