What does not
What was not tested
*After installing and running, the launcher from the Wine/Programs/Populous menu didn't work, but this was also the case in Windows for me. I just made a new launcher in the menu using popTB.exe from the Program folder. The second problem I encountered was that the mouse constantly re-centred when I tried moving it. What I did was change the Wine settings so that it launched in an 800x600 virtual desktop.

This game works with Wine 1.1.29, but not with the newer versions until 1.3.32, which works even better!
Additional infor for 1.1.29:
Mouse override is not needed anymore!
I suggest to play the game inside a wine desktop due to low resolution supported by the game, however fullscreen should works too
