Howdy...

Mint 14 Nadia
Wine 1.4.1
KDE
Dell Inspiron 9400, 2GB RAM

When I launch PlayOnLinux (PoL), I get a couple of meswsages telling me that I am missing xterm and 7z and should install them to use PoL. Nevertheless, when I close the two messages, PoL runs and seems to work fine. I've looked in Synaptic for them, and xterm is installed, but can't find 7z.

Why can't it find xterm? Are they essential? What is 7z?

Thanks for any help!

7z is 7zip, for package management. Yes it works, and yes it is needed, as you will run into issues down the road.

Simply open up a terminal and type:


sudo apt-get install xterm p7zip-full


And that is it. 7zip is listed as p7zip-full and p7zip-rar (I always install both) in Ubuntu/Mint.

DJY...Thanks!

I know 7Zip, and actually have it installyd under PlayOnLinux-->Wine, but I guess tht doesn't count. I'll install it as native Linux.

Thanks again!
