Ubuntu 19.10 software app does include POL v4.3.4, but once the installation launched, it stops with the error message saying 'Impossible to install POL, not supported' (french message is: 'Impossible d'installer PlayOnLinux : il n'est pas pris en charge".

 

Very strange issue frown.

 

Perhaps it's because I can't install from terminal 'wine:i386' (error message says something like: none version installable).

The fix (in Terminal) is to type: 

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 

Then install POL.

Nice catch!

Mint still has the old 4.12 version.  I'm not sure how to send them the 4.3.4 version?

This has been a big problem because new gamers will download PlayOnLinux from the Software Manager and then it won't work properly

The problem with Mint is that they build onto Ubuntu LTS only. And currently Ubuntu LTS (= v18.04) has POL v4.3.2 ...

Perhaps the thing (package) is related to Debian.

Yes, and I've read on Reddit that PlayOnLinux 4.3.4 will not be available until Mint 20???!!!

Why not Mint 19?  I just upgraded finally and still not 4.3.4 in the software manager.
