I have the Lego Mindstorms NXT 2.0 software working fine on my Windows computer, but I can't get it to work in Ubuntu. I have tried both Wine and PlayOnLinux. This is all that is keeping me from wiping the Windows partition off completely. Did I miss something? I not only need it to work, I need it to work well. I use it with Bluetooth, and it is a high-graphics program through LabView.

Wine is not perfect and does not support every application. Go to winehq.org to ask for support –  Ringtail Feb 28 '12 at 4:55
In addition to BlueXrider's recommendation you should provide the hardware details of your graphics card. Linux support for ATI and Nvidia is generally good but not perfect for high graphics demanding programs. –  Mark Rooney Feb 28 '12 at 6:12
I don't know much about my graphics card, and I don't know how to check. Because it is on a CD, it has multiple files. When I try to install it with Wine it says it is missing a part of the LabView program. UPDATE: the rating in the WineHQ app database says that it hangs on installation too. Is there a program with the same capabilities? Thanks for answering my question so quickly! –  Klikini Feb 29 '12 at 0:26
