trouble installing quake2 in ubuntu 10.4

i am currently trying  to install quake 2 in ubuntu 10.4  i already downloaded and installed the quake 2 data installer package but i get this error when i try to install the data from the game using the terminal
robert@laptop:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure quake2-data
Installing data from CD-ROM
find: `x-nautilus-desktop:///1.volume/players': No such file or directory
xargs: Warning: a NUL character occurred in the input. It cannot be passed through in the argument list. Did you mean to use the --null option?
robert@laptop:~$

i am using a disk image to install it it(my laptop has no cd drive)it is a .bin file plus a cue file and i mounted it with acetone i know its a good image because i tested it on a windows pc and it installed fine
i also tried to install it with wine and i did the full install so i wouldn't need to mount the image every time i wanted to play the game but it still tells me i need the the quake2 cd-rom even when the image is mounted. i also have software to convert the file to an iso would that help in any way i figured that it might be a format issue or do i need my actual disk copy
any help would be welcomed
