We use Adobe Frame extensively on Solaris and received a notice
some months ago that a Linux port was available for testing.
As I remember it the test version was free but I had no time
to try it then.  It may be pricey but, if they have done a complete
port, it may be worth it. Frame is an excellent piece of software.
