I have been experimenting with running Windows games in Wine on my Ubuntu box. I was successful with Half Life and Tomb RaiderII, but I have hit a snag with Serious Sam. I am able to install it, but when I try to play it it gives me an error message, in a Windows Fatal Error box. It Says:Cannot set display mode!
SS was unable to find display mode with OpenGL acceleration. Make sure you install proper drivers as reccommended in documentation, and set your desktop to 16 bit color"
It says that in the troublesghooting section of the Readme - even in windows, but of course that method of setting the desktop color doesn't work for Ubuntu. Should I even be using Wine to run SS? I know that "Loki" puts out some binaries, but I don't even have a clue what to do with them. I guess I'm kind of hoping that somebody who has had success with this particular game can help me - but at any rate, I'm pretty happy with my success so far.
