playonlinux - Play Windows Games on Linux

playonlinux is one of the tool that answers the question "How to play windows games on Ubuntu Linux ?"

playonlinux seems to be similar to cedega except that playonlinux is open-source and free. playonlinux supports around 11 Linux distros. Although there is no package for Ubuntu Intrepid but adding Ubuntu Hardy sources file to my intrepid seems to be working fine.

Installing playonlinux

Use following commands to configure sources and install the playonlinux package.

sudo wget http://deb.mulx.net/playonlinux_intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
wget -q http://deb.mulx.net/pol.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install playonlinux

Nice :) Note that there is also support for Intrepid - just change:

sudo wget http://deb.mulx.net/playonlinux_hardy.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list

to:

sudo wget http://deb.mulx.net/playonlinux_intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list

Cheers :)
