My problem is I can not run Lucious properly on my computer, I have installed the latest drivers for my graphics card (GeForce GT430 2GB) and in the game called Lucius, in WINE, I get this error:


Can't set new display mode: RESET_DEVICE_RESET_FAILED
Cant' set old display mode: RESET_DEVICE_RESET_FAILED

enter image description here

According to WineHQ Lucius unless you are trying to run it via Steam using Wine is rated Garbage.

That means that the game will not run in Wine properly or wont run at all.

By the screenshot it looks like you have copy of the game installed, not via Steam, installing the game via Steam would mean you need to buy the game again and risk encountering further issues.

You mean I can not install copies "unoriginal" game on my pc using ubuntu? Excuse my ignorance is the first time you use Ubuntu but I love this OS and I keep him. – Javier Jara Jan 23 '13 at 23:36
Well, that is not for discussion here, I dont care where the copy of the game came from as long as you dont tell me where it did. What I am saying is that the retail version of the game will not run on Wine, the Steam version of the game might. – Bruno Pereira Jan 23 '13 at 23:38
