Doctor who adventure games in wine
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 27, 2010
Ive got wine and have installed the doctor who game with the daleks. Have got emulated desktop clicked and all I get is a blank screen. Now I understand that wine doesnt work with intel chipsets. I have an intel atom cpu and was wondering if anyone had got the games going since the new tardis game is launched today and I wouldnt mind playing it.
Cheers lads and lasses
iMac Platinum, ubuntu and games
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 9, 2009
I have a new iMac Core2 2.66 GHz system on order. I hope to use Boot Camp to partition the drive and install ubuntu as a second OS. My question is, will I be able to run a Win XP flight simulator on it? Specifically, IL2 1946. As this is nearly the only Windows software I want to run, being able to do this is critical to even bothering with Boot Camp.
Obviously, my goal is to have a Microsoft-free zone but I really like ILs as a Flight Sim. Soooo... Help, help, help!
games in wine and other grapic intense apps crash
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 30, 2009
Hi can anyone help me out with this problem?
Every time i start google earth it shows the splash screen then briefly loads and the nothing. The same goes for running battlefield 2 in wine or trying to enable 3d mode in the default chess game that comes with ubuntu. On the other hand 3d desktop effects, video, and Counter-Strike Source (in wine) render just fine.
Is this just an issue with the nvidia driver or am i missing some packeges or something?
Thx for any help
My specs are Jaunty 64 bit runninig on my inspiron 1520 with a 2ghz dual core 2, 4gb of ram, and an nvidia 8600m gt (running 180.44 driver).
Ubuntu 12.04 64bit + Wine = bad combo? Page 2

Wine is one of those programs that needs to have a 32 bit part, because many Windows programs (like for example Steam) are still 32 bit. In a pure 64 bit environment they won't run.
That it still doesn't run is kind of weird, but sadly i can't really help with that. I fiddled with Wine for about half a year with various games and came to the conclusion that it is much easier to simply dualboot with Windows to run games. I hope this changes at least for games available on Steam when the native Steam client is released (according to Valve sometime this year).
Ubuntu noob + Games = problems!

So, I am not so much of a gamer, but do enjoy a couple of them. So, let's go for stages...
1-Runescape: Don't know much about the game, but my neighbor does and he just decided to install Linux to get away from the "viruses that were eating his computer alive" - he's 14... anyway, the game is online and java based, I installed him sun-java-jre6 and changed in the web page, the option to unsigned applet using default java. This slows down the graphics and he is not so happy about it. He wants it in high details as on windows, maybe it's not possible, but i promised to check.
2-Habbo: He also plays Habbo. For this one, I had to install him a windows version of Firefox through wine so that I could install shockwave and he could play. Again, graphics are horribles, with black boxes and a very low resolution making impossible to play.
3-Bejeweled: I installed this one for me on my computer. But at the end I get a message about being unable to create a link to popcap.com a
How to get ATI graphics card to play nice with Steam games?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 30, 2013
EVERYTHING works fine in my OS, from full-screen flash/videos to no window/GUI lag to even non-Steam games (2D/3D) that work fantastic.
However, when I play a game like Half-Life, or even Osmos (2D, but using 3D particle effects), I'm greeted to a blank color that fills the screen, and my cursor left to wander around. Other games will have an odd resolution, and will only fill the bottom left quadrant of the screen. I have an ATI Radeon HD 6850 (1GB) card, and I upgraded to the exact drivers Steam recommended in a popup.
I'm running a 64-bit (derivative of) Ubuntu 12.04 if that helps.

I need to find the folder for smokinguns because I want to add a mod but I can't find it. All I can find is the executable file in /usr/games but not the actual game files. Where are they?

Video: 18 Ubuntu Linux Games in Synaptic

I feel like I've been away for so long, when in actuality, I've just been maintaining our own community over at Category5. Hope you're all well!
Just did a feature on Category5 tonight where I demonstrated 18 great games in Ubuntu that are freely available and installable directly from Synaptic Package Manager, making them the ultimate games for new Linux users (as they're SO easy to install). Hoping that the fact that we show each game in the video will help you find at least a few games that you'll really enjoy on your Ubuntu system.
I wanted to share the video with the Ubuntu community, so here it is:
