Have you tried this (http://ubuntuliving.blogspot.com/2007/03/visual-boy-advance.html)?

It's old, but should work just fine.

Hey, thanks for the link..VBA express loaded up, but the game would not load up without any graphics filter on it, and when I did it obviously made it look really crazy....then when the game did load it said that 1m-sub culture wasn't installed or something like that

I had VBA working in 11.04, then I did a clean install to 11.10 and the game loads but lags severely. It is almost unplayable. On the same system running 11.04 a typical ROM would run at 130%- 180% speed, which was great for playing a little faster than usual. Now the same ROM plays at only about 25%. everything else is the same, so what gives? I might try running in Unity 2D or some other shell and seeing if maybe my graphics card is just too stressed.
