Hello,
Here after trying out a manual installation of evernote (Evernote_5.8.1.6061) via POL 4.2.5 (in wine 1.6.2.) under Ubuntu 14.04, I get an error like that, unfortunately:

The installation doesn't finish. I am stuck in a waiting line, even though the program is installated and running like charme. It simply doesn't finish it in POL - that means I can't have a shortcut on desktop and can't see it in POL.

 

Thank you in advance for your assistance.

Somehow got a manual shortcut by looking around the options for the drive i created.

ANd via this shortcut I can do a shortcut for the sektop. So everything fine, except the text is too small in the app.

Sounds like the manual installation didn't finish.  Normally after you install the packages and the game, it will automatically do a PlayOnLinux shortcut.  Sometimes it stops if there is an error or crash during the installation.  Is that what you mean by "waiting line"?

You can always create a shortcut later by going to Configure in PlayOnLinux, then select the virtual drive you created.  On the General Tab, click "Make a new shortcut from this virtual drive"
Then search for the game/program's exe, name it and the shortcut will appear on your Desktop and in PlayOnLinux.

Thanks! That is exactly what I have done.
