GIMP should work, if it is installed. No idea if that's done by default on 

Photoshop never has existed in a Linux version, so the best you 
can hope for is that it runs under Wine, which is not guaranteed. Again, both 
Wine and photoshop need to be installed on your computer.

And if you indeed get the message that the GIMP is found, but not executable, 
perhaps check permissions?
