I wrote a recipe to install WBaduk on linux/mac using PlayOnLinux. It would be great if someone can test it.

How to install:
1- Install PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac
2- Save this code to a file.
# Date : (2015-07-03 21-09)
# Last revision : (2015-07-05 12-47)
# Wine version used : 1.7.46-staging
# Distribution used to test : Manjaro
# Author : petete

[ "$PLAYONLINUX" = "" ] && exit 0
source "$PLAYONLINUX/lib/sources"


#POL_GetSetupImages "" "" "$TITLE"

POL_SetupWindow_presentation "$TITLE" "World Baduk Service" "" "petete" "$PREFIX"
POL_Wine_SelectPrefix "$PREFIX"

# Needs ie6 to fix OLE errors when playing, clicking on web stuff with ie gives errors
# maybe needs Flashplayer_ActiveX, needs more testing
POL_Call POL_Install_ie6

POL_System_TmpCreate "$PREFIX"
cd "$POL_System_TmpDir"
POL_Download "$INSTALLER" "$MD5"
POL_Wine "$POL_System_TmpDir/$INSTALLER"
POL_Shortcut "UpCheck.exe" "$TITLE" "" "" "Game;BoardGame"


3- On PlayOnLinux go to Tools menu -> Run a local script, select the file you saved on the last step.
4- It will show you a warning, click "I agree".
5- Follow the installation wizard.
6- Play WBaduk!

If you try it, post here and share your results.

It's a while since the original post but I tried to use this method. I changed the wbaduk.exe and the md5 hash in the script and it installed it but when it started up there was some access violation error popup above the wbaduk client, and then in playonlinux there was error that it couldn't download UpCheck.exe

I am looking for a way to play on some active asian server with linux, but I read fox didnt work on wine so I tried this, any tips?

Does IGS / GoPanda2 client not count? 95% of the users are Japanese and there's a native Linux client.
