This is my firt post here so I will try to make it as clear as possible with my lame english.


Operating System - Ubuntu 14.04 TRUSTY (i686)

Cinnamon Version - 2.3.0

Linux Kernel - 3.13.0-27-generic

Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo CPU    E4600  @ 2.40GHz x 2

Memory - 2.0 GiB

Hard Drive - 678.5 GB

Graphic Card - Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. (AMD/ATI) Park (Mobility Radeon HD 5430) (prog-if 00 (VGA controller))


When I search on additional drivers I can see that 1 proprietary driver is in use:

Using Video driver for the AMD graphics accelerators from fglrx-upfates (proprietary) IS SELECTED


I downloaded and old pinball game called "Microsoft Pinball Arcade" - I used to play that game a lot around 1998. Is just an .exe file

Released by    :    PARADIGM
Release Date    :    October 23, 1998
Oper. System    :    Win9x
Game Type    :    Pinball
Requirements    :    P100, 16MB RAM, 100MB HD, DirectX 6

The Wine Version I have is  1.7.26

Winetricks is intalled

Play On Linux 4.2.5

I tried to manually install the game and everything looked fine until I select one of the 6 tables, then the screen goes all black and only the white pointer is visible. No way to exit the game so I always have to restart the whole computer. Any possible way to make this work?


Thanks in advance - Lorena
