Sorry for the confusion 

I have a laptop and a pc both running ubuntu 9.10 
what i meant was i have wine running on my pc and not my laptop 
and thats how i know it was flashplayer playing up 
for some reason flash player just works on my laptop , it must be because i dual boot with windows .
on my pc copy the flashplayer into the firefox plug-ins folder will not work like it does on my laptop .

so that is when i heard that i could use wine and use the windows firefox and flashplayer to play yoville .
