Installing from the Ubuntu repository:

PlayOnLinux is available in the Software Center on Ubuntu versions from 12.04 and up.

However, if you want the latest version, you will need to add the PlayOnLinux repository.

Installing from the PlayOnLinux repository:

The following example is for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS

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

If you want to ensure that you have the correct repo for your version of Ubuntu, or only want to install from the .deb file, you can check here:
