Why can't i download steam on Wine?

I've been trying for hours to download and use wine on ubuntu 12.04 so that i can be able to install and play black ops cd that i have. i have downloaded 1.4 wine package from and wine is installed on my pc but everytime i try to open steam.exe nothing happens. I have tried both use and open in wine downloader buttons. Do i have to use 1.5 wine package for ubuntu 12.04 and if yes where do i downloaded from? because i tried downloading it on but it's unstable yet.

I would appreciate if you help me to use wine and play black ops which is compatible only with vista, xp and 7.

thanks for your support.

If you are using Ubuntu go here: Installing Steam in Ubuntu and more here Steam under Linux

Here is more info on a native Linux client:

I'm unable to install wine gecko.

I got this message when i tried to open wine for windows programs

"Wine could not find a Gecko package which is needed for applictaions embedding HTML to work correctly. Wine can automatically download and install it for you.

Note: it is recommended to use your distribution's packages instead. See for details.
