Machinarium & Samorost 2 on Linux

I got both Samorost 2 and Machinarium for a bargain price, the only disadvantage being that the media do not contain version for Linux.
With Samorost 2 this was not a problem, it installed and run fine in Wine (wine-1.1.32, Mandriva 2010, 32 bit), however Machinarium was a bit tougher. It installed ok, but when I tried to run it, it just produced a black window, eating 100% CPU, doing nothing else.

The solution was rather simple, using the exe2swf utility:

./exe2swf ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Machinarium/machinarium.exe
firefox ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Machinarium/machinarium.exe.swf
