both games dont start hope you can help. maybe its impossible because of my amd graphiccard.
here are my specs:

ubuntu 13.10 64bit
amd phenom ii x6 1055
amd hd5770 driver amd 14.3 Beta
wine 1.7.16
playonlinux 4.2.1

I installed it with the playonlinux wizard and removed all mods. After I click "start" in the launcher i get an "shadermodel3 not supported" error. I also tried enabling and disabling GLSL-support but nothing changes. the funny thing is that the conif menu in the launcher recognizes my graphiccard as a "Readon 8000"

I installed southpark stick of truth in the steamversion that came with the skyrim installation wizard.
everytime I try to start southpark steam trys to install directx 10 and then crashes with this errorreport: javascript:nicTemp(); (

hope you guys can help me and I dont have to switch back to windows

edit: tried the crossover trial and skryrim works like a charm...

Hmm interesting.  So Crossover works fine?  What version of Wine is Crossover using?
There is a manual installation guide here:  Skyrim Guide
Maybe it will work for you...
I recommend installing the newest version of PlayOnLinux:  4.2.2
