can you elaborate on this a bit, if we can get Ubuntu running on your 
machine, or you can find a working machine then it would be easier to 
reproduce and fix any issues you have. Also if you are designing brand 
compliant templates it is more important they look the way you want them 
on Ubuntu than Mac OS. I have had huge problems with colour reproduction 
on Mac, they do mad stuff with colour spaces and things that start 
#dd4814 jump around to all kinds of other colours. I believe it works 
well if you use a defined workflow and calibrated everything and adobe 
products end to end, but on Ubuntu everything with colour just works as 
there is no confusing gamut mapping stuff going on.
