This was necessary for me to run Oblivion on Ubuntu 18.04. You may not have to do this in your distro. Solus for example did not require this,
The game has an issue with winegstreamer, and will crash if it is
When playing this game on Ubuntu, I had to install DirectX manually. This may not be necessary depending on your distro, but I needed it for Ubuntu 18.04 when installing 3.0 stable from the software center.
