updating playonlinux

Postby gggreggg on Sun Sep 29, 2013 8:05 pm

New to Linux, and recently downloaded Mint 15.

To use Ableton, I also downloaded PLayonlinux v 4.2.1 and followed instructions from that site to install.

Discovered that mint is downgrading this back to 4.1.1 , which will not work for running ableton.

I have found that this may have something to do with the package manager, and have been trying to figure out Synaptic, but the thing I think I need to do (mark for upgrade, oading somer force version) are not accessible (I can see them but can not click on them in GUI).

Anyone have suggestions or reccomendations? I am reading some books, searching the web and experimenting with the programs, but not able to figure this out...

Thanks in adance...

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

No one knows about this or how to tell package manager to allow newer versions?

I always install playonlinux with the .deb on their site.

Go to ubuntu link and you will see it.
