Howto install Call of Duty Black Ops in Linux using PlayOnLinux

Few days ago  PlayOnLinux team announced that Call of Duty Black Ops  is now available on playOnLinux , this mean that you can install the game by just a few clicks using PlayOnLinux. As mentioned in their forum , the Game runs a little better if you get rid of “unessential” effects like shadows and anti-aliasing. The installation has been tested by PlayOnLinux Team on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, Debian Squeeze, OpenSuse and Mac OSX 10.6.5.

About PlayOnLinux :

If you are new to linux ,”PlayOnLinux is a piece of sofware which allows you to easily install and use numerous games and apps designed to run with Microsoft® Windows®.
Few games are compatible with GNU/Linux at the moment and it certainly is a factor preventing the migration to this system. PlayOnLinux brings a cost-free, accessible and efficient solution to this problem.


Installation :

If you don`t have PlayOnLinux installed please follow the instructions in this post to install the latest version.

Note : I tested this game in Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, and seems to work fine. For issues report into the Forum
