    Use Software Manager and search for Wine.
    Install it and you are ready-to-go!

    Normally you need to do this first before installing PlayOnLinux.
    So if you are noticing problems with PlayOnLinux go ahead and uninstall it and re-install.
    Also make sure to download the newest version here:

    Wine itself does not have any graphical interface, nor does it show up in any system menu by default. However, PlayOnLinux (which is what most of us here are using), has a very easy-to-use interface for using Wine.

    I think Lorena means the "default" Wine isn't showing up in PlayOnLinux Config

    Yes Booman. But anyway I uninstalled the winehq dev and purged all the folders.
    Then reinstalled using the Software Center and now i can i see it on playonlinux and my cinnamon menus.
    Drakensang still works perfectly fine (wich i installed with playonlinux many days ago).
    So everything is going perfect.
