Hi

I moved from using linux to mac, but I would like to take my PlayOnLinux bottles along.

How can I migrate my bottles from PlayOnLinux to PlayOnMac?

Thanks,

Rainer

Yep.

Just copy ~/.PlayOnLinux to ~/Library/PlayOnMac :)

If I copy all contents, then my bottles don't work anymore and crash (no useful error message). Is there something else I have to do? Install wine systemwide? I would prefer to keep wine in PlayOnLinux.

Yep. You have to install all wine versions used into PlayOnLinux, and maybe rebuild symbolic links

There's probably some absolute paths to fix, for example in the shortcut files.

Dirty hack :

On Mac OS : ln ~/Library/PlayOnMac ~/.playonlinux

ln -s ~/Library/PlayOnMac ~/.PlayOnLinux may work for paths starting with ~, but aren't users home directories under /Users/ on Mac? That breaks absolute paths, you can fix that with more directories and symlinks, but it starts to be really ugly :p
