hi all

well i just installed ubuntu and was lookin at some of the free games you can download such as nexuiz and battle for wesnoth...the onlything is when i download these i either get a bunch of files instead of an installer like i normally get in windows or i get a message that says i cannot run it

advise?

One of the really cool things about ubuntu is the repositories:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install wesnoth

And:

sudo apt-get install nexuiz
or click this link (apt:nexuiz)

When done, find them under Applications = Games

You should also check out Synaptics (System = Administration = Synaptics Package Manager)

There you can search for lots of Games and Apps for ubuntu, mark the ones you want and hit apply. Then it download and install for you :)
