PlayOnLinux - There are no miracles

Filed under
Software
Gaming

PlayOnLinux is a gaming framework, based on Wine, designed to help you install and run Microsoft Windows games and programs more easily. Simple enough mission, dire-hard results. Playing Windows games on Linux using Wine is not a new concept, nor an easy one. The success of such endeavors depends on many factors. Some titles will run just fine. Others will plain refuse to even start. In between, there are thousands of games that can be run with varying degrees of luck and compatibility, mainly depending on user skill. PlayOnLinux tries to remove the user from the equation, creating an automated solution that should solve the setup issues so that you can focus on actual games.

In this article, I will show you how to setup and use PlayOnLinux. We will also try to install a handful of games and fail, and these will not be entirely a PlayOnLinux fault. This will be the result of trying to do something rather unusual; running applications designed for a different operating system.
