Is there any way to install either Shift 1 or Shift 2 on Ubuntu?

You will probably be able to run the application using Wine Install wine. Wine is a compatibility layer for Windows executables, allowing a number of Windows applications to run on Linux / Ubuntu.

According to the Wine AppDB entry for NFS Shift 1, the application does have fairly good support and (assuming the patch is installed) should play with little or no problems.


Speed Dreams is a nice linux option for racing. The easiest install method that works for me is located here:



I'm not sure if those two are supported by PlayOnLinux Install PlayOnLinux as yet, but that should be your best bet. Installation is automated.

Edit: as George said, Wine (what powers PlayOnLinux) should be able to run it. You will just need to know what you are doing if you encounter problems installing ;).
