I have installed versions of San Andreas and Most Wanted which I used to just click and play in Windows but in Ubuntu they don't seem to work.
I have installed Wine 1.3 but while using San Andreas all I get is black and white screens which flash. To try to fix the problem I gave this command in terminal:
sudo apt-get remove --purge wine wine1.3 .
Now I suppose it is installing wine 1.2.
