Here's the new article:

I encourage everybody to update it, if something changes along the way.

Default Finally Succesful 2016 under Mint - PlayOnLinux (wine)

I have tried to install 2016 on Linux Mint through several tutorials, and failed. Simply put, I didn't know all the "lingo" and "shortcuts" people just assume I know. I'm not a "noob" to Linux, but just don't have the time to devote to knowing all there is to know about it or keep up with all the changes.

So, the install tutorial at http://www.gamersonlinux.com/forum/t...tor-guide.452/ helped me out SO much. It took me by the hand and led me to success using Mint Cinnamon PlayOnLinux.
It is a dated tutorial, so I had to replace references to "Orbiter100830" with "Orbiter2016", and also pull in the latest version of Wine which is now 1.9.23 rather than 1.7.47. Other than that, I followed the instructions to the letter and it all went fine.

OK, so Orbiter runs, but doesn't it occasionally crash under the development version of Wine?
