Hello All,

I've tried calling adobe support and they just ended up passing me around to 4 departments that had no clue what to do, eventually the line auto disconnected.

 

I'm simply trying to run the educational version on Ubuntu/Linux.  It appears that I have to get that from steam (which is fine) but there's no way to apply my current license in steam.

 

Is there a way to activate the older vesion of Substance Painter?  My old key is expired and activating through substance3d.com doesn't work.

Adobe products don't run on any version of UNIX or Linux. If there's an emulator for the Windows OS, you might be able to set it up that way. I don't work on Linux, though, so I'm afraid I can't help.

 

I have no idea about the Substance3D question. You'll probably have to ask customer support about that.

The question is why is how can I use my substance painter account from adobe and apply it in steam.  This is so confusing that even their tech support doesn't know what's going on.

The .key file I saved from before is now expired and I don't know how to get a new one.  The method to activate via substance3d.com doesn't work it just errors out.

 

If I get the program via steam, I will have to purchase substance painter.
