First question to ask. Check the game, can it run under Linux (Ubuntu).
If yes, check the Ubuntu community for help (can be reached thru the google start-up page of firefox browser on your ubuntu machine)

I am fond of playing offline games too. Since Our clients in the internet cafe' requests PLANT VS. ZOMBIES game be installed in the other units having ubuntu OS 8.10 client desktops.
Just make sure when you have installed the ubuntu it must be accompanied with WINE INSTALLER in order to run the exe. file of the Windows design Plant Vs. Zombies. Copy the folder of the Plant Vs. Zombies files and then paste it in the desktop or home folder of the Linux OS.
Right Click the exe icon the open it with wine program installer. Then just wait for a while then the Plant Vs. Zombies game will load in a linux Program.

Enjoy Playing Plant Vs. Zombies in Windows and Linux Program.

How to Make Ubuntu Play MP3 Files


Because of licensing issues, Ubuntu is unable to play MP3s out of the box. We’ll show you how to play MP3s and other restricted file formats in about four mouse clicks.
The philosophy behind Ubuntu is that software should be free and accessible to all. Whether MP3 and other file formats are free is unclear in many countries, so Ubuntu does not include software to read these file formats by default.
musicplayer_001.png Fortunately, it does include a package that installs the most commonly used file formats all at once, including a Flash plugin for Firefox.
Note: These instructions are for Ubuntu 10.04. There are small differences for earlier versions of Ubuntu.
Play MP3 Files
Open the Ubuntu Software Center, found in the Applications menu.

Click on View and ensure that All Software is selected.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_001.png Type “restricted extras” into the search box at the top-right. Find the Ubuntu restricted extras package and click Install.
ubuntusoftwarecenter_002.png Enter your password when prompted.
authenticate_003.png Once the install is complete, close out of Ubuntu Software Center, and you’ll be able to play MP3 files! To confirm this, we’ll open up Rhythmbox, found in the Sound & Video section of the Applications menu.
sshot116.png Our test MP3 plays with no problems!
Note: If Rhythmbox tells you that MP3 plugins are not installed, close Rhythmbox and reopen it. You should not have to install anything extra through Rhythmbox.

Despite this extra step, playing the most common audio and video file formats – including Flash videos on the internet – is simple. All the software comes installed, you just have to teach them how to read your files.

How to set pc to play different s game.


Well to get full versions of a game u either have to go buy them in a store or download them online for a price on their official site (not for all games).

After u have the game, if it s on a Cd/DvD just pop the disk into your DVD/CDROM and a autorun will start guiding u through the process.. If u bought it online u may have to launch the "SETUP.EXE" file in the game directory.

You don t need to set your PC to play different games in any way. You just have to have the right configurations depending on what games u are trying to play.
