wine/playonlinux crashing

Post by Yeshe »

I of course am new to Linux, made the switch after trying it out after using dual boot for a bit. when I was doing dual boot I was able to install Itunes. I have a Ipod and have movies, music. would live to access. I also tried to in stall a few different programs to see if it was just Itunes. it was not. would love some help, my computer runs so much better on Linux and I do not want to give up things that have paid for.

I installed the playonlinux flatpak version and it did not work. Uninstalled it.

I then Installed the regular playonlinux and worked fine.

Hope it helps

Hi yeshe,


I use playonlinux. and a lot of windows progs work very well, though not all.

First of all, when you install playonlinux, you are asked to choose between 32-bits and 64-bits version of windows. itunes does not seem to work with 64 bits version, so choose 32-bits version of playonlinux.
Then, start playonlinux and click on "install" button. In the text field next to ""looking-glass", enter itunes. You'll see a screen like the image below.
Choose one of the itunes version, click on Install bottom-right of screen and follow instructions. If all goes well, you will see an icon on your desktop that you can use to start itunes.

Hope this helps

I think this page https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... n&iId=1347 gives better info.
The most recent versions of itunes have very bad reviews.

Rather than all those other commands, try the command I suggested:

It's by looking at what you posted that Flemur can tell you didn't do what he recommended. (I offered a simplified version, on the assumption it would be easier to get right). Linux is very precise. Everything matters, including spaces, punctuation, capitalization, one or two hyphens, single or double quote marks, etc. In future, use copy-and-paste. Much more reliable.

Anyhoo, glad to see you got it working. Reinstall was going to be my next suggestion. The held-packages problem for Wine can be intractable.

Stubborn much? These are not the same:

sudo apt-get purge "*wine*"
sudo apt-get purge "wine"

The first is what Flemur suggested. The second is what you say you did.
