 This might be a silly question but is there a ppa for ubuntu 13.04 ? I can find the a bit old Precise version
 and if I get the .deb file will it get updates ??
 Thank you in advanced

No. No ppa. There is a repo for it on the Download page:

http://www.playonmac.com/en/download.html

That will give you the updates.

The deb will not give you the extra repo for the updates, but if I am not mistaken, every time you start POL it will check for new updates, and if there is one, will make a pop-up appear telling you so.

Im not sure if they added the repo for 13.04 yet, but it shouldnt be too hard. Id assume there hasnt been too much testing of POL on the new and now stable(?) version of Ubuntu 13.04.

Yeah. I just looked at the server, and I dont see anything there for it. Give it a little bit of time to get some testing to make sure there is nothing that is missing. I think that is the problem.

Thank you for the reply DJYoshaBYD

Thing that concerns me that there is not even 12.10 version up there, so does this means that they do not provide latest versions, on the latest ubuntus ??

It will work. Just use the .deb file. I dont know why we dont have newer repos added, but the .deb should work across the board. It will automatically take care of deps and all of that.

No, this one doesnt do that.

But, whenever you start PlayOnLinux, it automatically checks for a new version, and if there is a new one, it will bring up a pop-up saying that there is one, then you will just have to download the newest deb.

Im sure this will change soon. Im not sure why the repos havent been updated for quantal and raring.

I dont know. I dont know what Ubuntu is doing with Unity and stuff now. You could try it. I dont think it will hurt anything. Again, I havent tested it in raring at all. You could run into package dep issues, but most of the packages that are needed are pretty common, so I dont think there will be an issue.

We dont update like every 5 days or anything, so the deb is really not too bad.

No prob. :)

Just remember, if all else fails, uninstall POL, rm -rf ~/.PlayOnLinux, remove that repo from your list, sudo apt-get update, then install from a deb. Hope it all works out.

installed it on ubuntu 13.04 clean install (not quite clean install) I already had wine 1.5.28, a lot other software and i must point out I had this libudev0 para 64bit installed but it asked me to get "curl" and after grabbing it, it works just fine

thank you DJYoshaBYD for your help :)

Yeah. That is actually a bug that is going to be straightened out. Curl is not listed as a dependency in the deb. It will be fixed soon.

Glad it worked for youse.
