OK so after all my windows computers in my house suffered one SBOD too many and updateing windows vista caused a total system unrecoverable crash I now have a 500 gig hdd with Linux Ubuntu 13.10 installed, and I totally miss playing Freespace
I am terminal phobic and so new to linux that unless everything is in a .deb format so I can use the software center to install it I'm lost, can somebody please link me to everything I need to run freespace.
Also my copy of Freespace 2 is in windows format when I bought it from GOG, so how can I either install that on Linux or get another copy?

There is a guide up there in the top nav bar.  Click it and then click Linux.  Don't fear the Terminal.  The Terminal is your friend.
