I successfully installed Far Cry 2 using the preinstalled scripts in PlayOnLinux. The installer had no troubles or errors.

I go to run the game and a black box appears with a windows title of Far Cry 2, then an error pops up saying suitable display settings could not be found.

'Could Not Find Suitable Display Settings!"

I hit ok and it ends.

I am a using linux for the first time, so I do not know much about terminal.

I am running Ubuntu 9.10 and using the GNOME desktop.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Did you install any graphic card drivers? What is the resolution of your screen?

The resolution of my screen is 1280 x 800.

I have these display drivers installed:

Nvidia binary driver ('version 185' driver)
This is what it says in ubuntu software centre.
