RE: Sims don't display text

Ok, the problem is solved.
I'm running Wine on Ubuntu 10.10.
Anyway, I got help from a friend and made a few things. One of them was installing intel driver config tool and set from "image quality" tab "Enable S3TC texture compression even if software support is not available" -> yes. I'm not sure if that was the thing that helped but most probably yes.
I can see the text now, though still can't play because now that I see the text, it says "No game disc found!"..so I move to another topic.
