I have http://www.amazon.com/World-Goo-Pc/dp/B001ENOVP2/ref=sr_1_1?s=software&ie=UTF8&qid=1309215345&sr=1-1 I want to get it on my ubuntu desktop so I got wine. Wine works great with a lot of my programs, but need help with this game. I downloaded the world of goo and installed it on linux with wine. I run the game and nothing shows. How can I get this game to work on ubuntu?

A good resource is the wine appdb. Search for the game and see the ratings, comments and suggestions for getting the game to work.

Another option is to install PlayOnLinux (from the multiverse repository) and see if its supported. There appears to be a script for it: http://www.playonlinux.com/repository/?script=349
