I'm using Ubuntu Distribution 12.04 and trying to run Oblivion, I used playonlinux to install it to a virtual drive along with using wine.

I think the problem is I have a bugged graphics card or something I'm fairly new to Linux just moved from windows. Here is the bug report from playonlinux I believe.

When I start it up on playonlinux, it shows a menu with the buttons, "Play, Data Files, Options, Elderscrolls.com, Technical Support, Uninstall, and Exit".

Try running

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib32:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

If you're running 64-bit Ubuntu it searches the 64 libraries first, then fails and closes. This will instruct it to search the 32 library first. This is how I solved the issue with Civilization 4.
