Ubuntu: How to download Playonlinux through terminal?



Question:

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.


Solution:1

virusboy@virusboy-Inspiron-3521:~$ sudo apt-get install playonlinux [sudo] password for virusboy: Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done The following extra packages will be installed: libwxgtk-media2.8-0 python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxversion Suggested packages: scrot wx2.8-doc wx2.8-examples editra The following NEW packages will be installed: libwxgtk-media2.8-0 playonlinux python-wxgtk2.8 python-wxversion 0 upgraded, 4 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

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.


Solution:2

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
