Re: Linux plyaback support?

It is much easier then it looks, that list is all the stuff it is installing to mimick Windows on your Linux Box.  If you have been using linux for more then a week, you should understand how to do this and how easy it really is.  

 

(that is in the console way of installing, if you use the Ubuntu Software Center you wont see any of that)
