I suggest you to use PlayOnLinux, in combination with wine, which offers a clean and user-friendly interface, that let you install and manage windows software and games.
PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®.
Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.
Here is a non-exhaustive list of the interesting points to know:
- You don't have to own a Windows® license to use PlayOnLinux.
- PlayOnLinux is based on Wine, and so profits from all its features yet it keeps the user from having to deal with its complexity.
- PlayOnLinux is free software.
- PlayOnLinux uses Bash and Python.
Nevertheless, PlayOnLinux has some bugs, as every piece of software:
- Occasional performance decrease (image may be less fluid and graphics less detailed).
- Not all games are supported. Nevertheless, you can use our manual installation module.
- Simply use Software-Center to install it,
- or refer to their HP installation info.
Here is another solution, that uses your Ubuntu OS based system standards.
Main Menu Application and select New Item button,
which will open a
Create Launcher window, from where you can use the Browse button, that let you select the path to the
.exe (executable) windows application/game.
- You can also name the new shortcut, add a description and icon to it from there.
