Release 15, Version 15.0
close to everything :) big sigh.. earlier installs of AutoCAD2000 on wine gave funny probs like:
1. cant input full serial no. (poss in release 0.9.36 but not again till 0.9.45)
2. properties editor (ctrl+1) displayed only if nothing was selected. now its fine.
3. xref (easy) but keep text away (see below)
4. layouts, viewports object viewports etc.. are fine
5. express tools )bless'em) are fine too.
What does not
essentially text, something with the text rendering makes zooming and panning a drawing with text super slow. putting off text layers etc.. will allow normal speeds of z and p. that is if the file was already created earlier and had text on it. CREATING text is not working at all and will freeze autocad.
printer does not get installed, but there is a workaround for this. will try it.
What was not tested
nothing.. 3d, render, colour pickers the works, everytihing works.
AutoCAD2000 worked peacefully with nearly all versions of wine (except for the text bit). one issue was that first start would be fine , sometimes second alos ran fine but third and subsequent starts, the window would not get its correct working size. this is repaired by editing /home/user_name/.wine/user.reg. dont know script but essentially change these lines [Software\\Autodesk\\AutoCAD\\R15.0\\ACAD-1:409\\FixedProfile\\Application Window] 1190546481 "Position"="2 2 1598 1198" "Show"=dword:00000001 to [Software\\Autodesk\\AutoCAD\\R15.0\\ACAD-1:409\\FixedProfile\\Application Window] 1190546481 "Position"=- "Show"=dword:00000001 and everything becomes fine again. this I learnt from this appdb. shows that enough netsearching can find the answer you're looking for. :) thanks and all the best.

1. Use recent version of Wine(tested on Wine-1.3.9)
2. Download winetricks by following command
3. Install required components by following command
sh winetricks corefonts mdac25 tahoma win2k
It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components
4. Change Screen Resolution in Wine configuration by typing
Then go to Graphics tab and change Screen Resolution from 96 to 108
(workaround given by Sheaff)
5. navigate to your AutoCAD 2000 CD and run
You can install your AutoCAD 2000 using PlayOnLinux (some kind of gui for Wine). I think it's the easiest and cleanest method because script will install AutoCAD with service packs in separate prefix automatically. To do so you'll need:
