Credo che molta gente conosca PlayOnLinux: è un front-end grafico scritto in Python che permette di usare molte potenzialità del software Wine (Wine Is Not an Emulator), programma che fornisce un ambiente di lavoro per le API Win32.
Le potenzialità sono notevoli: consente di eseguire installazioni manuali di giochi e software vario, permette di configurare completamente Wine a proprio piacere e offre un archivio vastissimo di script atti a facilitare l’installazione di giochi e software, così da non farci sentire la mancanza di Windows ;D

disperato dal fatto di dover scaricare ogni volta l’aggiornamento dal sito ufficiale, ho cercato di creare una release per PPA senza successo… ho però scoperto che il sito ufficiale ha creato un server per la distribuzione! ecco come fare per aggiungerlo alla nostra lista sorgenti 😉

Nell’utility Sorgenti Software andate nel menù Altro Software, cliccate su Aggiungi… e copiate la riga

deb http://deb.playonlinux.com/ [DISTRO] main

ad esempio

deb http://deb.playonlinux.com/ maverick main

o

deb http://deb.playonlinux.com/ etch main 

–>Attenzione: provate subito a ricaricare le sorgenti; se vi desse un problema (file non settato bene, provate col commando da terminale
sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_[NOMEDISTRO].list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
Scusateancora ): <–

dopodichè, lasciando aperta l’utility, scaricate la chiave gpg del server
–> Download (click destro[Salva destinazione con nome])
e aggiungetela in Sorgenti Software nel menù Autenticazione cliccando su Importa chiave e scegliendo il file appena scaricato

infine chiudede l’utility e tramite Software Center o Synaptic installare PlayOnLinux 😉

ma non poteva mancare il comando da terminale! ecco a voi:
–> Cambiate [NOMEDISTRO] con la vostra release (hardy/intrepid/jaunty/etch/lenny/squeeze/karmic/lucid/maverick) <–
wget -q “http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg” -O – | sudo apt-key add –
sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_[NOMEDISTRO].list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux
