Thanks for testing

Duh, I removed the 'www.' part to make it shorter, but redirects to, and apt doesn't support http redirects :/ I fixed the instructions

I didn't test with Xubuntu specifically but indeed it's meant to work (for Debian distros >= 2007).

Hmmm, does it persist if you restart X / reboot the computer? Also, is the rest of the screen black, or do you still see part of the desktop?

SDL (the game library) will adapt to the screen resolution, by either switching the resolution, or centering the game in a bigger black screen (if direct resolution is not available). You seem to get something different so I wonder if the problem lies somewhere else (maybe, as you mentioned, Wine messing up the screen configuration or something).
