You could likely get it tweaked to work on Wine but why bother?

Doom has several ports for native play on Linux. Enable the appropriate repositories for your Linux distribution, check out Doom websites on the net to pick your favorite, then install it with your package manager. Don't need Wine for Doom.


doom, doom95, linux, ubuntu, wine
