    How to install The Sims 3 game on ubuntu linux?

    So I have a (to be very specific) Ubuntu T61 Lenovo Thinkpad Laptop that runs on Linux. I did do a little research and found that a lot of ubuntu linux people have been successful with installing the Sims 3, so I bought the Sims 3 today in the hopes that I can also install it successfully with my computer. So can anyone tell me HOW exactly I can do this? I'm fairly new when it comes to Ubuntu and linux, so I'm not very "pro-like" when it comes to installing things and getting all fancy. I mean I know where the terminal is and all that but, I just need help! So, can you please give me step by step instructions on how to install the Sims 3 in my laptop? Please and THANK YOU!!!

    PS. I already have Wine ;P

    1. Go to http://playonlinux.com and download the Ubuntu version and set it up.
    2. Select "Install" and select The Sims.
    3. Follow the rest of the instructions.
    4. Play the game.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    That's what I tried to do, and I actually have the "Sims 3" and the "Sims 3 Launcher" icons but when I try to open them, it says that they crashed

    I don't play any Sims games, but here is the link to the PlayOnLinux Sims 3 forum:
