Hi,


I just recently installed Playonlinux, and I need to use the Playonlinux console.  However, when I click on the button, the console appears for a split-second and then disappears.  Does anyone have any ideas?

 

Relevant:

Trusty, xfce, Crouton, Dell Chromebook 11

Hmm, you are using an unusual setup with your Chromebook and Crouton.  I messed around with Crouton on my Chromebook (Acer C710) but never actually tried PlayOnLinux.

I would say uninstall PlayOnLinux completely, install Wine first then install PlayOnLinux from the website here

This way you will have the newest version.  Then try using the console again.  If it still doesn't work, maybe there is some kind of 32-bit library that is missing?

Debug output, please. I am going to start locking threads that do not have the required information in the first post. 

Just right off the batt, though, you might need xterm (which I think is the terminal program that the console uses). I am not sure though. Debug output will likely show an error when it crashes. 

Update POL as Booman suggested, run playonlinux from the terminal, try to run the console, and if/when it doesn't work, post the terminal output here.

I tried Ubuntu Trusty in Crouton a few weeks ago and found that a lot of stuff crashed and there were missing programs like Disk Utility and other administrative stuff.

IT worked but had some bugs.  Probably because I have an older Chromebook.

So I'm not fully sure if all the dependencies are there for Wine and PlayOnLinux.

Right now I'm using ChrUbuntu on my Chromebook from another partition and it runs really well
