Forgive me, I'm a noob.
I downloaded playonlinux and got confused when trying to download games.
One of the steps asks me to select the setup file to run. I'm not sure what that means. I would've picked starcraft.exe, for instance, but that isn't an option yet.
Please help.

Also, I wanted to use the program to get itunes. In every tutorial I find, this program is in the list under multimedia. It isn't in mine.

I appreciate any helpful answers I recieve.
Thank you

PlayOnLinux doesn't download games. You need to already have the game. Please read the manual under Documentation.

Also, Linux doesn't work with Apple devices syncing to iTunes. If that is why you want iTunes, it won't work for that.

It is listed in multimedia, but you probably need to check "testing" when searching for it, because it does not work correctly.

Thank you. My question about games was answered.

After reading the manual, I learned that "the application doesn't work well under WINE (that PlayOnLinux is a front-end to)" concerning itunes and that I may need to install it manually. I've seen this program intalled on linux in tutorials, so I hope it does work with the right finagling.

Any advise would be appreciated.

Like I said, it doesn't work correctly in Linux. You won't be able to transfer to and from your idevices. Lol
