    Buy a copy of COD1 first, then check out WINE

    Dear MrMichaelHill,

    I'm running Ubuntu version 9.04 Jaunty, which doesn't include the Ubuntu Software Center, which is mentioned when I click your link .

    I suggest a o.s upgrade is there a reason why your using a outdated operating software which you get no update's. I recommend you upgrading to 12.04 lts which has updates until august 2017. If your using older hardware try lubuntu works with minimal resources like early xp system's. Is there any reason why you haven't updated since 2009 that's a long time in computer tech your system is certainly vulnerable as you have had no security update's since 2010 which is not recommended.

    Always remember to back up your data

    Is there really no way to install COD 1 on an Ubuntu 9.04 ? It must be the same generation, no ?

    Try pointing your software sources to old releases, install wine and try to run it. It has platinum rating, so it should work once you have wine installed. (Edit: that would probably be with a recent version of wine, not the old one in the 9.04 repos. You may need a manual installation of wine and hope it works with your old libraries.)

    No one here still uses 9.04, so I don't think you'll get much support here. After all, it's unsupported and insecure. You'll have to use your own skills.

    Gaming support has only just started to get going really well since 12.04, especially with steam coming to linux, even if COD1 and 9.04 were released around the same time, at the time COD1 would have been unplayable.

    I highly recommend installing maybe Lubuntu or Xubuntu 13.10 and trying to run COD1 on it, so they would be better for it.

    Dear Impavidus,

    Thanks for your interesting answer, which I think says it IS possible to do so . But I'm just a rookie on linux/ubuntu . Is it possible to give me a step by step guidance for this way of installing Wine ?
