Hey guys. I wanted to ask that can we use the script of POL in POM. If we can how do we use it.
It would be helpful if anyone provided tuto or manual about it.
Thanks for any help

hi mac_tester,
Welcome here !

it depends on the script.
for the moment, every scripts which work fine are in the script' section, but in theory, all POL'scripts are oaky since the 3.5 version of POL.

Tinou can more explain than me, ;-)

have a good evening ;-)

PlayOn*, c'est top!

The script are exactly the same except the following restrictions :

- To be compatible, a script should use $REPERTOIRE instead of $HOME/.PlayOnLinux
- The commands like "mkdir directory -p" must be replaced by "mkdir -p directory"
- OpenGL apps causes problems
- The script must be written in V3 commands (Starting by POL_SetupWindow). V2 commands can't be used (like message, question, creer_prefixe, ect...)

I hope I answered your questions

Just use latest stable PoM release and it's Install menu, all compatible scripts are listed in there, just select one and installation will start.
