Linux Thread - Successes, Failures, How-To's

I am creating this thread to gather info on using Topaz Labs (TL) software in Linux. I am aware TL does not officially support Linux Os’. I am also aware of a few people tinkering with using TL software on UIbuntu (via a thread here and there).

Please share your successes and failures here so we can all benefit. Running long video processes and bulk photo processing is what I personally want to use my Linux system for, but with little to no info on any successes (that I can find), I haven’t done it as of yet.

I will be testing on my Arch-based system, I will post my findings here when I have something to post.
