3) Perform a ‘Dual Boot”
How to use these options to play poker on Linux Poker Sites?
Using An Instant Play / Java Applet / Flash Plugin:
You can play poker on your linux machines by installing Java / Flash Plugin on your computers. Now you simply need to click on the “Instant Play” or “No Download” button located on the home page of the poker website and start playing your favorite online poker games instantly. Important Note: Not all the Linux Poker Sites offer the same features and functions like the windows version have.
Installing WINE on Your Linux
You can enjoy playing your favorite poker games by installing “WINE” on their Linux machines. Wine is a free software program which allows Linux users to operate windows based programs on their Linux machines. Important Note: Although WINE is a good option to play pokeron your Linux machine but many players have experienced the sound issues or lack of features. But you don’t need to worry, an option of Instant Play / Java Applet / Flash Plugin is always there.
Dual Booting Your Linux Machine
Another option of playing poker on your Linux is to perform a dual boot, through which you operate both windows and Linux on the same operating system, but not at the same time. Important Note: Loss of files is the biggest drawback of dual booting. Hence, we recommend you to take back up of your PC before using this method.
