Depending on what you want to run, the results and techniques will vary. What is it that you want to run?

you can try with wine. it may work with varying degrees of success.
____________

um, there seems to be a linux version of it, so it would probably be better to use that:

are you sure you want to run the windows version ?

YouTube - Dolphin (Gamecube Emulator) on Linux with Wine there's also this Gamecube Emulator for Windows and Linux and Mac.

Try checking in the package manager on your Acer One and see if wine is in there for installation.

navigate your terminal to the folder where gcube-0.3.tar.bz2 is, then run this:

#tar -xvf gcube-0.3.tar.bz2

this will create a folder with the extracted archive (on your desktop i'm assuming)

Code:
[user@localhost ~]$ s*do th*nar

in more detail

Building gcube:
---------------
* Before compiling check Makefile for options.
* To compile just type 'make' or 'make release' (optimized)
(on windows use cygwin and type make -f Makefile.win, and on mac use
make -f Makefile.mac).

I've checked all the files contained within the bz2 archive. There's no makefile, probably an oversight on the part of the developers. There's no way you can compile this without that file i'm afraid.

Looks like you'll have to go back to plan A. If you followed the instructions from that thread I pointed you to, you should now be able to type:
Code:
sudo apt-get update
This will download an up to date list of available packages. Now do:
Code:
sudo apt-get install wine
This will install the wine app for you. Download the winblows version of Dolphin and click on the .exe (if there is one) to start the install process.
