Ubuntu: How to download Playonlinux through terminal?


I can't go to the playonlinux website. Can someone tell me how to install playonlinux through terminal? I would install Playonlinux through Ubuntu Software Center but i dont think it will update it. I'm running Ubuntu Unity 12.04 LTS which is Precise.


virusboy@virusboy-Inspiron-3521:~$ sudo apt-get install playonlinux [sudo] password for virusboy: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree

This is what you should see. Since PlayonLinux is a wrapper for Wine, you need the Wine PPA. To do this in a terminal type in the following:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa  sudo apt-get update  

to add the PPA repository to your ever growing list of PPAs and update the list. Now you can use the command without issue.


There are new repositories for such installation. You will need to run:

wget https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/Release.key  sudo apt-key add Release.key  sudo apt-add-repository 'https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/ubuntu/'  sudo apt-get update  

And finally

sudo apt-get install playonlinux
