Sorry, if ask again. I need to run game from POL and check how it goes in terminal like in Wine or .log file like in cedega. Because I have a problems with running of some games and i want to trace a reason. How can i do that?

Hello demontager,

To trace the execution of an application, you just need to run PlayOnLinux from a terminal, with playonlinuxThus, you'll see POL and Wine outputs in the terminal.

P.S: It's your first message so I forget all about this but next time, you'd better be more polite ("Hello", "Goodbye/Thank", etc.) if you want to get an answer ;-)

Thanks for answer, but I have one note. Let say I have 3 games for example, and each of them use its specified wine version. 1 one - 1.1.14, 2nd-1.1.9, 3rd- 1.1.23. So I need to trace an errors on specifically chosen version. About running POL with executing "playonlinux" from terminal I know, but how can it defer witch Wine version I use? So it should be like that "playonlinux (specifieid Wine version) game.exe. And also I use Advanced Wine config plugin and how it could be applied in terminal as it set before in GUI?

If you (or an installation script) sets that a given app must be run whit a given version of Wine, with our WineVersion tool (accessible via Tools > Manage Wine versions), then POL will automatically use that given version when you run that given app.
Does it answer your question?

And also I use Advanced Wine config plugin and how it could be applied in terminal as it set before in GUI?

I'm not sure to understand what you meant here :^^:.

P.S: A little tip: rather than running POL from a terminal with the "playonlinux" command and choosing what app to run from POL's GUI, you can run an app directly from the terminal with the following command: playonlinux --run "App name"

I run game from terminal with executing $playonlinux --run starter.exe, but it shows pop-up message indicating that program didn't installed(sorry, it in russian on screenshot). Why? If my game "Evil_Islands" installed in Playonlinux and I can run it freely from POL GUI?

And second, I saw "Debug Playonlinux" in POL GUI menu "Utilities" ( there also autostart, launch unofficial script, kill wineserver and manage wineversions), but how it works? Sorry i can't understand, I pressed it, but nothing happens.

And third, regarding Advanced wine config plugin, I mean I need keep all settings which made by it when I want execute game in terminal with specified Wine version.
