Because install window is fixed size (not resizable) bottom of this window is below screen level in Ubuntu Netbook Remix on ANYx600 resolution netbook screens (almost every 10" netbook in stock now) and there is no way to make window smaller, so buttons and "Install .pol or unsupported package" are not accessible.

I also found this issue using standard Ubuntu with a 1024x600 screen.
Install window may be resizable.

I have also problems with some too wide windows of POL... but
If you hold the "Alt" Key and klick anywhere on the window you can move it, so you can reach the buttons.

Good pointer Amyros!
I didn't know you could do that!

I have an Acer C7 Chromebook with screen resolution: 1366x768
So far PlayOnLinux is running some older games fine.
Normally I will Configure Wine to have a virtual desktop with the same resolution of my screen.
Then everything displays just fine when games launch.
