I bought by mistake a collection of sceneries for XPlane (Fligh Sim) but I didn't realise these DVDs are for PC and Mac only. Is there a way to install them on Ubuntu anyway? Thanks for your patience, I am a noobie ;-)

Try to install it with wine:

It can run Windows software on linux, but it doesen't work with all software.
Give it a try and report any problems, maybe someone can help.

thanks for you help. I installed Wine and Virtual Machine as well but it seems I'm not even able to run those 2 apps! I am very new to Ubuntu just installed last week... – AlexdM Mar 20 '13 at 12:33
