    PlayonLinux?


    I just installed playonlinux and it installs games pretty easily but for some reason the games don't run even though it claims to use wine and wine says it supports it. For example I have warcraft 3 install but it wont boot the game up. Any ideas?

    have you tried installing warcraft 3 through wine alone? I got it working when I tried it a three years ago, I'm sure it will work now just as easily.
    New to the internet, technical forums, or the hacker / open source community??

    I am at work so I can't see what it says exactlly but everytime time I try and use wine a box pops and it basically says it won't do it cause it isn't in one of the package mangers. I think it has to do with a security feature in ubuntu 10.04.
