PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous apps and games designed to run with Microsoft Windows. Few apps and 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.

What are PlayOnLinux’s features?

  • 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:

  • Occasional performance decrease (image may be less fluid and graphics less detailed).
  • Not all apps/games are supported. Nevertheless, you can use our manual installation module.

Fixes in this version:

  • When removing shortcuts or virtual drives from the Configure window, make sure desktop icons, menu entries, etc. are also removed.
  • fix Python’s Version Lower (infinite source of bugs)
  • Update © in about box LP
  • Fix a huge problem in bug reporting I introduced in 4.2… I thought it tested it well, this is depressing. Without testers, without users testing beta versions, it seems there’s no way to get bugfree releases.
  • Huge icons download speedup by reusing a single HTTP connection
  • Make sure debug mode is disabled when using playonlinux –run; Debug may still be used in playonlinux-bash though
  • Make sure entered prefix name contains no space or slash during manual installations

Note: PlayonLinux requires winehq in order to work. You can install winehq 1.7, winehq 1.5, or wine 1.4.
