You cant - that's for android tablets.  You need to get android apps that have been converted to .bar files and sideload them with one of three sideloading tools available, though only the Chrome App Manager works on Macs and PCs. It also works wirelessly and without all that java runtime twaddle.

Google "Playbook sideloading". Visit goodereader.com for converted android apps such as kindle and google maps.

yes you can install applications from google play to playbook.

You can install DDPB.

and then convert apk to bar applications (for example with http://apk2bar.org/) , and install it to  Playbook with DDPB.

DDPB is windoze only. You also need Java runtime installed. The chrome extension will run on windoze mac and linux/google .

DDPB is quick and simple.

 

So why bother for complicated Ubuntu/Chrome Method, which is minority choice? Also OP have not speficied their OS.

We don't encourage rooting playbooks on this forum.
