I'm new to PlayOnLinux and trying to get used to everything but I am having a bit of a proplem. When I open up PlayOnLinux, I click on the Install button and the PlayOnLinux install menu window opens up but there are no programs listed. Is that normal or is there something wrong? I am using Linux Mint 13.

Are you online? You will need to have the computer online to update it.

Also, when you are in the Install Window, you can click Refresh. That should update it with the list of games. You may just have to click on a category, too.

I don't remember the Install ever listing games. I usually do a search, then it will list games depending on what you are typing

You can do that, or you can click a category. That will make stuff appear.

Sorry it's been so long since I last posted here. I tried everything that was suggested but nothing worked. I'm tempted to just remove it since I cannot use it.

Did you click Install?
Then try one of the three checkboxes or just type the name of the game you want to try.

If you have been using Wine to play games then PlayOnLinux will make your life much easier.

Maybe something got wrong during initialization?
Since you have nothing installed, you can try removing ~/.PlayOnLinux
That will reset all PlayOnLinux state, as if it was used for the first time.
