One popular myth I hear often usually revolves around a sliver of old truth. “Linux can’t play games.” This sliver of truth was derived from the day’s not too long ago when playing commercially available mainstream games wasn’t an option to Linux users. Granted there were some exceptions to this rule, like EVE Online, and Doom 3. But this myth has kept many unwitting gamers stuck on windows for all the wrong reasons. Allow me to lift the veil on modern Linux gaming.
Linux, and more specifically Ubuntu Linux, has come a long way in a short period of time. Many game developers and freelance Open Source coders are making major strides in gaming tech for us Linux gamers, opening the door on a hidden market that seemed impossible to get into. Much of this success can be attributed to the many developers and supporters of the Wine Project a compatibility environment for Linux that allows Windows programs to run seamlessly in Linux. Wine is actually an acronym that, ironically enough, stands for “Wine Is Not an Emulator.” This is true of it when you launch a program in Wine. It actually runs the program like any other Linux program and as you can see in the many screen shots on the Wine AppDB, the programs are indistinguishable from their Windows installed counterparts. The applications to Linux gaming are limitless with this technology.
So how do I get wine Working?
Pretty Simple for you Ubuntu users
Go to your "Synaptic Package Manager" under System > Administration > Synaptic Package Manager
Then head over to the repositories section:
Add one of the following apt lines to your repositories list based on which version of Ubuntu you have installed:
For Ubuntu Jaunty (9.04):
For Ubuntu Intrepid (8.10):
For Ubuntu Hardy (8.04):

as... (He is the maintainer of the Ubuntu Wine Repositories) You'll need to pay carefull attention to where the .gpg file is saved as you'll need to navigate to it. Next you need to actually import the .gpg key file you just downloaded. You've most likely saved the .gpg to your home directory so just navigate to it by clicking "File System" then clicking home > your user name > then the .gpg file.[/IMG]
You'll notice the red highlighted area in the picture above, that line is added if you correctly imported the key (minus the red highlighting I added)
At this point you can hit close on everything, even Synaptic itself.
Open a Terminal ( Accessories > Terminal )
Update your sources list
Then install Wine!
sudo apt-get install wine
The beauty of this is that Wine will self update and wont require you to do any fancy compiling every time it's updated. You'll be updated to the latest build any time it's pushed out.
Now, the fancy part that you may need to do in order to make some games run.
Still in the terminal type the following to get Winetricks
This next part I must caution anyone using is restricted only to people who own copies of any version of Windows, as it relies on software that is copyrighted by Microsoft. So if you legally own ANY version of Windows your fine
sudo apt-get install cabextract
And once that's installed
