Best way to run some graphics design windows programs on Garuda?

Hello and good day to all.
Y downloaded KDE Lite Edition, wow it is impressive!, many nice and new applications to me, it makes me feel like I am testing something new and different than Linux.

I like Lite Edition so I can customize to my needs, no games, mainly for graphics design work. GIMP is good but not suitable for my needs. So I need to run a few programs like:
Photofiltre (32 Bits program):
http://www.photofiltre-studio.com/news-en.htm
Affinity Photo (64 bits program):

Is there a procedure or a full package to install all the needed software like Wine, Winetricks, Playonlinux, and any other Linux software to run the above programs?, specially Affinity Photo that I think is the best replacement for Photoshop.

Best regards

install

sudo pacman -S garuda-wine

Thanks @librewish, I will try your recommendation in KDE Lite Edition.

Thanks @SGS, Given my experience with other Linux distros, I try to avoid very loaded distributions, Does KDE Ultimate Edition, besides of the programs to run windows software, also comes with games preinstalled? Because if so I will have to uninstall them.

Thanks and regards

Yes you would have to uninstall the games.
As always in life, find the best for yourself :slight_smile: .

Thanks @SGS, after I finish testing KDE Lite I will definitely install the Ultimate in my production desktop. I love how seamless worked Garuda with VirtualBox just in the first try, many distros do not work well at first try in VirtualBox.Thanks a lot to all Garuda’s team for sharing this aesthetics and well accomplished Linux distro. :+1:t2: :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi...
I was trying to do the same this morning, after some hundreds MB of update for games...
I used pamac to see categories and uninstall games but Browse-Categories shows nothing... Refreshing database didn't help...
I then used Discover, but in Installed section I have to search and recognize any single package as game to remove it...
Is there any easier/more clever way to uninstall games as I don't play games?

TIA
Theodore

I knew I had to first search and then ask :wink:
I found an answer in a similar post which directed to compare (with meld) the two txt files with package names for lite and ultimate editions...
I'll follow this path...
