Everything except for video.
What does not
The opening video.
What was not tested
Not a complete clear. Installation was not tested; a workaround is known to exist, so I consider it a low priority. Also, I did not test the mangagamer version.
I have windows Japanese fonts in my WINDOWS's fonts folder. I also run the game with a simple script: #!/bin/sh LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program*/Navel/SHUFFLE!/Shuffle.exe The installation itself is from an older version of wine, but the game continues to run as usual. There have been no notable changes since my original post.

Installation process is flawless and it don't need a howto.
To run correctly the game, your Linux must have east asia language pack.
Some OS have it installed autamaticly, but in some you have to do it by yourself.
Install for e.g. Kinput2 or type kanji/ kana in your file manager and install one's that you are interested in.
After doing the whole stuff, it's time to run the game.
Simply enter to your game folder (for e.g. /.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Navel/Shuffle/) and if your OS is in other language than japanese type (without "" marks): "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 wine Shuffle.exe".
It should display japanese writing correctly ;)
For those, who don't speak japanese there is a translation patch.
Their project translates only first two days of the game but they said "We'll do the rest". But it seems that their project is dead. Maybe they will ressurect it but I dunno when.
Anyway have fun with this game... perverts :P Genki de! ;]
Mangagamer is selling an english translation of this game. I have not tested it personally, but I think it would probably work.
