How can I run free realms in xubuntu?

Hi, I recently installed Xubuntu on my daughter's computer that previously ran Windows XP. She plays an online game call ed free realms

I found that FreeRealms is not a native linux app, however I read it could work in Wine. I read this here:

and read how to do it here:

I followed the steps (to a certain extent) and it did not work Can somebody walk me thru the process step-by-step because I have no idea how the hell to do this!

what exactly did not work? Installing wine? Running the app? Something else? Did you get an error message? The howto at appdb seems quite step-by-step to me
