    Hey everyone! =)
    I follow this tutorial =>https://github.com/po-devs/pokemon-online/wiki/Build-PO-on-Linux
    I have a problem when I'm trying to install Pokemon Online on Debian with the Qt4 method.
    In the step "Build" I don't know how to use the command
    => make -j4
    Should I use it in a folder in particular? in the folder where the github download PO?
    the number 4 is it important?

    If you have an easier method or maybe a deb for installing PO on Debian, I take it with pleasure!

    Thanks =)

    Install Wine
    Download Pokemon-online.zip file
    Find .wine folder (it a hidden folder, should be in your home folder)
    Extract the zip file in /.wine/Program files/Pokemon online
    Run from there

    Don't listen to Kase.

    Just do it in the folder of the github download. 4 says "use 4 cores to generate the binary", if you have more/less cores you can edit that number.

    Thanks guys! =) it's work! I have a last question, how can I make a Shortcut for the Pokemon-Online application on Debian because using the console for launching the app or going to the pokemon-online folder is very annoying...

    I try both of them! and the two work, but with wine the PO display is not very adapted with Debian, so I use the Coyotte method!

    @ Kase: I follow this tutorial => https://github.com/po-devs/pokemon-online/wiki/Build-PO-on-Linux

    ** sudo apt-get install git g++ libzip-dev qt4-dev-tools qt4-qmake libqt4-declarative-shaders libphonon-dev
    ** git clone git://github.com/po-devs/pokemon-online.git --depth 1
    ** qmake "CONFIG += po_server po_client"
    ** (and in the folder where the PO git is download):
    make -j2
    ** And for launch the application, I just go in the "pokemon-online" folder and in the"bin" folder and double clic on the Pokemon-Online executable
