two weeks ago i installed playonlinux 4.3 on my ubuntu22.04 and it worked perfect for myphoneexplorer. Tried to install it now on a new machine again with ubuntu22.04. .NOGO. No more dependencies aqvailable - they just deleted them it seems, playonlinux 4.3  will not install anymore. Unfortunately the substitution is not a simple .deb file anymore, it takes a long time to understand what it takes to install and HOW to install it (over Flatpak) - and I cannot figure out why the "local installer" seems just not to work. It DOES install seemingly the program "Myphoneexplorer 2.0" - but then it stops and stays blank forever. Does anyone have a hint how to get on? MyPhoneExplorer is a basic tool to "de-googleize" android phones.

PlayOnLinux 4 has no active developper any more (nor Phoenicis). This is why I switched to Codeweavers's Crossover in 2020.

Does this mean that PlayOnLinux is dead now and that we have to switch to Lutris or Bottles?

PlayOnLinux is dying, but not dead as long as its main developper (Tinou) host this website...


I see a bit activity on Github, but no release since v4.4.0 in may 2020.

How do you import PlayOnLinux's existing wineprefixes in Lutris or Bottles now that PlayOnLinux is slowly dying?

I don't know any way to do it sad.

Consider trying Phoenicis, or Crossover.
