"05:50
Click on the exe"

Who ever is giving you Linux help is "full of shit". The Linux binary files are not .EXE.

in Ubuntu just double click on the binary file, other Linux distros do this from the command-line:
.sh YourGamenamehere
or
/sh YourGamenameHere
or
./ YourGameNameHere

most modern distros will have the MIME set for executing binary files properly by default. If not set it to the above command that works with your distro as the application to open it.

As far as the HTML documents not loading, just change the MIME type so that they load in Firefox or Chromium. By default most distros have HTML file open in an IDE like Komposer or a text editor.

Also run the browser from a console, and you will be able to see anything that the browser is complaining about like missing Libraries in the console.

"sudo apt-get install libnss3:i386"
ONLY IF YOU ARE RUNNING A 32 bit processor. If you are running a 64 bit processor, then you will need both the 32 and 64 bit version.

"libgconf2-4"
Only need this if you are running GNOME desktop. And you need to configure said windows manager. Has nothing to do with running HTML5 games in a browser. It is to tweak the window manager known as "GNOME". If you are running Gnome those files are usually installed by default.

can you compile a "Dummy" package and upload it for us to test?
