Portal doesn't work either! I doubt that HL2, HL2:Ep. 1, or HL2:Ep. 2 work either (I have the Orange Box). Even though I haven't bothered installing them because my bro is going to reformat my computer because it's all messed up. For example (This isn't a wine problem) My Synaptic Package Mangager doesn't work!
When I click on Software Updates, it says:

Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

When I type anything into Software Management it says either:

Package cache could not be opened


Message did not receive a reply (timeout by message bus)

 :(  HELP! :(

(Thanks so much to everyone who has helped so far! You have all been awsome! :D )
