I have a computer for my son and I am currently running Ubuntu with no other
Os program, just Ubuntu. My son loves to play Oregon Trail and Polar Bowler.
Can anyone help me be able to install these? Your help is truly appreciated!
My knowledge with computers is not outstanding so please explain well.
Thank you! :)

Thanks! Not sure how to use this info. Some things state that I need to install
Wine on the Ubuntu. I downloaded it to my flash drive and installed on
his computer but all it brings up is a folder. There is no install that I can
find to install Wine. Any help on that? Thanks! :)

At this point, I think you need a linux geek (which I and whs are not). I'm sure one will be along this evening. :)

bt u know , u don't even need to download it from somewhere .. just type as follows on ur terminal ...

sudo apt-get install wine

and ur done with installation , it will be done by itself from internet .
