Install PlayOnLinux on Ubuntu Linux

I installed in on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS.

Please follow the instructions below.

1. Add PlayOnLinux repository:

  1. Open the Ubuntu Software Centre > Edit > Software Sources > Other Software > Add.
  2. In APT line, type the following (replace “precise” with your distro, e.g. “lucid”, if you have an earlier version):
      deb precise main
  3. Press Add Source.

2. Add signature

wget -q “” -O- | sudo apt-key add -

This step was missing in some tutorials.

3. Update installation sources

Run this command from terminal:

sudo apt-get update

4. Install PlayOnLinux

Run this command from terminal:
sudo apt-get install playonlinux

Type ‘Y’ when asked.

5. Run PlayOnLinux

Go to Ubuntu Start > Type “playonlinux” and click on the PlayOnLinux icon.
