How To Install PlayOnLinux 4.2.5 On Ubuntu 14.04 Linux Mint 17

PlayOnLinux is a piece of software which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft Windows.


Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.
