Install PlayOnLinux and Run Windows Software

How-To Linux

Back in 2009, I showed how to install then new-kid-on-the-block PlayOnLinux. Three years is a long time, right? Things have changed since, for one PlayOnLinux is now part of the repository of many GNU/Linux distros and flavours today.

But not every repository carries the latest version of POL and as a gamer who wants to play smoothly the latest games on the market, it is to our interest that POL is always updated. Here’s how to get your POL installation updated whenever there is a new release.

Ubuntu 12.04 “Precise Pangolin” (LTS)

This includes Ubuntu flavours Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, and Linux Mint that are based on Ubuntu 12.04. Open a terminal window and type the following:

  • wget -q “” -O- | sudo apt-key add –
  • sudo wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install playonlinux

Ubuntu 10.04 “Lucid Lynx” (LTS)

Open a terminal window and type the following:

  • wget -q “” -O- | sudo apt-key add –
  • sudo wget https://de
  • sudo apt-get install playonlinux

Debian Squeeze

Open a terminal window and type the following:

  • wget -q “” -O- | apt-key add –
  • wget -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
  • apt-get update
  • apt-get install playonlinux

Simple right?

For other versions of Ubuntu, Debian, and for other distros, you can check the official website for more instructions.
