I have some programs and games installed with Wine and I wonder if it's possible manage this applications with PlayOnLinux. There was a plugin called "Wine Import" to do this, but seems to be obsolete.

What can I do? Should I copy my Wine folder and paste it in the Playonlinux directory?

The Wine import plugin works fine.


copy the whole .wine folder with registry entries. to:


PlayOnLinux For the Precise version

Type the following commands:

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

Do you know where I can download the plugin? It's not present in the PlayOnLinux options. – Edocastillo Dec 28 '12 at 16:12
In my Ubuntu 12.04 installation of PlayOnLinux (see edited answer) the plugin is present and works. – ptheo Dec 30 '12 at 8:55
I installed playonlinux via PPA, but the wine import plugin is still missing. – TIIUNDER Jan 19 '13 at 16:22
