    Hi, I used to be a windows 7 desktop gamer. After I installed ubuntu 18.04.3 bionic on this desktop. my new selfbuild AMD pc, I installed PlayOnLinux, then Steam, and logged in to Steam for linux?, tried to install Project cars 2 from dvd-rom but I think this needs to be a direct download thru the Steam website or such. Although Project cars 2 is listed on my favourites. Updates needed for Steam linux runtime. I also have Burnout paradise on dvd. Which i used to play on win7 intel Quad core i5 Ati 7770HD.

    And nothing happens. Does AMD x64 system with ubuntu 18.04.3 OS work along side Play on linux and Steam, and if it works can i use code on dvd case to play game with download Project Cars2

    thanks in advance

    From what I can remember, Steam is available on Linux. Then all you have to do is download Steam....sign into it and download your games.
