If I've missed something please let me know, I'm sure it's just something I'm doing wrong.
I've installed PlayOnLinux 2.0.5 on my Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy x86_64 distro.
I've installed Wine 0.9.51 prior to installing POL.
after starting the program and choosing which game to install (Star Wars Episode I : Racer),
I get a message asking where my CD-ROM directory is located, then it creates the wineprefix directory. After this, it asks if I would like a shortcut placed on my desktop then asks if I would like one in the main menu. Last, I get a message, in French, that the installation is complete.
As far as I can tell it has not run an installer and clicking run after selecting the shortcut in the list
