[Guide] Install PlayOnLinux

Wed Feb 24, 2016 11:28 pm

Hey there guys, i've been trying POL and it works great so I wanted to share with you how to install it.

Install the following packages:

Code: Select all

$ sudo eopkg it -c system.devel 
$ sudo eopkg it wxPython netcat cabextract icoutils p7zip
Download POL:
Now extract POL and execute it ($ ./playonlinux), enjoy! :)

Btw you will get a xterm error, just ignore it.

Hey man, I get a "no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH" error when doing the configure command. Idk if i'm just missing something very obvious or not. I've done everything in the post up to then. wxPython is installed, so not sure what I'm missing.

You're missing a few build tools:

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it -c system.devel
gmol1 please update the original post with this command first so users get the build tools they need :)

You'll need system.devel and wxPython on separate installs as system.devel is a component and wxPython isn't :)

Code: Select all

sudo eopkg it -c system.devel
sudo eopkg it wxPython

Have added icoutils, netcat and cabextract to the repo, when running POL it also recommended people install p7zip.

It's also wanting xterm but I'm holding off on that as it's license isn't 100% clear. I also want to do more enabling on wine as it currently has no sound before I put POL into the repo.

Isn't the Shannon repo the stable one? I found the packages available so that's why I updated the post :S
