Updating PlayOnLinux

Sometimes PlayOnLinux will notify you that there is a newer version.  Sadly there is no way to automatically update within PlayOnLinux its-self.
You can also update with the Terminal.  PlayOnLinux list the commands for you right on the downloads page.

Download the newest version from their website:  PlayOnLinux.deb

Click Ubuntu

Click PlayOnLinux_#.#.#.deb to download

Note:  the #.#.# represent the current version

Save it in your downloads folder

Then right-click and run with Debian Package Manager.
PlayOnLinux should install for you.  When its done, you can launch the new version from the Menu as you always have.

Updating Wine

Wine has to be updated with the Terminal.  Its the easiest way to get it updated quickly.

Open the Terminal (the icon should be next to the Menu)


sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa

Press Enter
Enter your password


sudo apt-get update

Press Enter


sudo apt-get install wine1.5

Press Enter
You will have to type "Y" and press Enter to confirm the download and installation.

Its done when you are left with a cursor

Now launch Wine configuration and click about to see if the new version is installed.
