Hi egetun,

You didn't found any source package because there is no source. (or more precisely, there is no binary).
Indeed, since POL is written in bash and python, you just need to download the generic package, extract it and open files with a text editor to see the source code.

We are always happy to see POL packages available for other distributions, so feel free to ask other questions if you need to.
I can even give you address to contact others packagers if you have question for them.

I am "istihza" of Pardus-Linux.Org located at Indeed, I built pisi packages for Playonlinux, and uploaded it to our repository at Pardus users have long been using it, and we have been receiving very positive feedbacks from them. Actually, I tried to tell you about our package before, but I could not find any direct contact address to inform you about the Pardus pisi package of Playonlinux. Today one of our friends at Pardus-Linux.Org directed me to this forum, and told me that I could write to you.

In our repository of pisi packages, we have these versions of Playonlinux:

PlayonLinux 2.6.0
PlayonLinux 2.7.0
PlayonLinux 2.7.1
PlayonLinux 2.7.2
PlayonLinux 3.0.0
PlayonLinux 3.0.1

I would like to congratulate you on making such a wonderful program. Keep going!..

Note: You can find the build source files for the pisi package at

Hi istihza,

First, thank YOU for building a Pardus package of POL

To contact us, either send an e-mail to Tinou (tinou <at> playonlinux <dot> com) or to any administrator you want (You can find some e-mail address HERE).

Then, could you describe here the method to install POL on Pardus (and if necessary which repository to add) please?
With this, we could add the Pardus package to the download page, among the other distributions.

It is really nice to see that our pisi package is welcome by PlayonLinux team, and thank you very much for providing the contact addresses.

In order for a Pardus user to install POL on Pardus s/he should first of all add Pardus-Linux.Org repository to his/her system. To add the repository, we use this single command:

sudo pisi ar forumdeposu

After that we use this command to install POL on Pardus:

sudo pisi it playonlinux

That is all. After the above command, Playonlinux will be installed on Pardus together with all of its dependencies.

If you host the pisi package and if the users wish to use the pisi package on your site, they can just download the pisi package from your site, and double-click on the downloaded package to install it. However, in any case they should first add the Pardus-Linux.Org repository as described above, because Playonlinux has one dependency that is in our repository (xterm). Otherwise, Pardus will complain about unmet dependencies...

For users having issues with the repository or the package, my e-mail address is paketler [at] pardus-linux [dot] org (or kistihza [at] yahoo [dot] com)

Many thanks for your interest,
