    Wine information is best found at

    http://www.winehq.org

    They maintain a database of just about every Windows program that has been tried with wine, and you can probably find advice for a installing a specific program with wine by using a search engine.

    Do you know how to open Terminal? If not, you will need to navigate to the bottom of your screen (you will see a small list of icons). One of them will be Terminal. I will try to get you a sudo script that you can copy and paste into the Terminal to execute the games you wanted. P.S. Are they Windows games?

    it would be easy if the game was for linux.

    since it is not, you need something like wine to run it. and since you are probably not into command line install play on linux from software center and then use that to install the game. it should be easy enough.

    additional note: NEVER use sudo with graphical applicaitons such as
    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    use grpahical sudo instead for example:
    Code:
    gksu nautilus
    well if you really have xubuntu then you need to replace nautilus with thunar, since thunar is default file browser in xubuntu.

    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
