PlayOnLinux to Install Windows Games & Software on Linux

PlayOnLinux lets you run Windows applications and games in Linux. Here's how you can install it. I am using Ubuntu 14.04.

Type the following command in your terminal

sudo apt-get install playonlinux

It will take sometime for installation. Once it’s installed, you’ll find PlayOnLinux in your applications menu.

Now you can install applications

click the Install button on the toolbar or select Install from the File menu

PlayOnLinux by default comes with many applications divided by categories and sub categories.

Choose your application and click the Install button after selecting an application and you’ll see an installation wizard.

I selected Safari, PlayOnLinux may automatically download the program’s installer file or it will ask you to download and browse to the setup file.

Once the installation is done, you can launch your application either from Desktop or from the PlayOnLinux window.
