LBA 2 on Ubuntu?

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone knows how to play LBA2 on Ubuntu Linux?

I've got wine and have used that to run the game but no picture appears!

i used both wine and dosbox, but wine is more fast...
what do you mean with "no picture appears?"
is the screen black?

Thanks I'll give that a shot.

The screen is black but a faint line of picture is visible at the top of the screen...

Wine works best even though Ubuntu is not the smartest choice for game emulation under linux

Well, I got LBA2 to work sort of, except it doesn't recognise my original disc and prompts me to insert it into the drive when it is already there!
