I went to "download" clicked on the Ubuntu download, right under that is the "deb" link.  Downloaded it.  Went to my download folder, clicked on the download (POL) and it installed. I did not use the terminal to install it and it went well.

sclee0620, are you talking about the PlayOnLinux icon on your launcher? I have the exact same problem... when I click on the icon on the launcher, it doesn't work. If you click on the Ubuntu laucher icon, and type in Play in the dash, the PlayOnLinux icon will appear. Click on it, and it should launch. Alternatively, you can launch a terminal either using the terminal icon in your launcher, going into the dash and typing Term, or by pressing Control-Alt-T. In the terminal, type in playonlinux and press enter. You'll see a few things scroll by in the terminal, and PlayOnLinux will start.
