It can do sometimes.What is the game? Is it a Windows game?

salsillie,

If you want to run Windows games in Ubuntu you can consider using WINE. Here you can see how to install WINE on Ubuntu: http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

Otherwise, if you want to run linux game, just navigate to folder using Terminal where game is installed, let's say it's name is quake and type the following:

chmod +x ./quake
./quake

This should run it.

Can you help with this problem?
