When I run PlayOnLinux gives me this message:

PlayOnLinux cannot find wine (from Wine)

You should install it to use PlayOnLinux

What should I do.


you need to install wine & to do so ,open your terminal and type as

sudo apt-get install wine

thats it.

    you may need to do 'sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa' first. Also could use 'sudo apt-get install wine1.7' for the latest version. Finally could do an 'apt-get update'. – comrademike Feb 3 '14 at 10:41

    @user204653 One of the reasons why I think it's a little confusing is because you can "install wine" from inside of the application as well. It's a UX sort of thing that is a little confusing. – tadiou Jul 27 '14 at 19:34

    @Raja Common sense? That gets you an obsolete version of wine (and did back in 2013, too). Installing playonlinux will by default install wine-development -- and that doesn't appear to install an alternatives option for wine! – Auspex Dec 16 '16 at 9:09
  • Above comments were deleted and if you want me to remind something that happened 3 years ago... i would say something. – rɑːdʒɑ Dec 16 '16 at 9:15
