So first off, Plants vs Zombies is a bad *** game. That said, my issue, I checked in some other threads http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1158028&highlight=plants+zombies is a devious one. After launching it goes to black full screen but never gets to the Popcap logo and after a few seconds, locks up. I can scroll through my open processes but can't even get into them. I have to reboot. It works in on my windows boot but I'd rather not even go there lol

Has anyone else had this issue?

I have a GeForce 8800 GT

My issue was when I would exit the game it would screw up all my video settings and mess up the screen. I am running it in windowed mode and its great. seems faster as well :)

How did you install it originally? Did you install it in windows, then load it in ubuntu? I'm not able to run the bigfish client downloader like this:


I'm trying to install this game:
