PlayOnLinux on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn

by Pierre-Yves Landuré last modified 2007-08-16 13:26

PlayOnLinux is a little program conceived to ease installation of Windows games on GNU / Linux with Wine. This article explain how to install this software on Ubuntu Feisty Fawn.

Fast and obfuscated

At first, initialize your sudo environment :

sudo echo

Then, copy / paste the following command lines in your terminal :

sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/feisty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/feisty-winehq.list
wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wine zenity unzip wget lynx
wget http://playonlinux.ovh.org/script_files/PlayOnLinux_1.7.2.deb --output-document=/tmp/PlayOnLinux_1.7.2.deb
sudo dpkg -i /tmp/PlayOnLinux_1.7.2.deb

You can now find the shortcut to PlayOnLinux in the Games menu.

Installation

At first, we add the Wine repository to apt's configuration :

sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/feisty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/feisty-winehq.list

We install the GPG key signing this repository :

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

We update the list of available packages :

sudo apt-get update

We install PlayOnLinux dependencies (if necessary) :

sudo apt-get install wine zenity unzip wget lynx

Once this done, we download the PlayOnLinux package :

wget http://playonlinux.ovh.org/script_files/PlayOnLinux_1.7.2.deb --output-document=/tmp/PlayOnLinux_1.7.2.deb

And we install it :

sudo dpkg -i /tmp/PlayOnLinux_1.7.2.deb

You can now find the shortcut to PlayOnLinux in the Games menu.
