Almost everything works: browsing the words with the translation. The pronunciation of the words works too although it might be of slightly less quality than in Windows. Printing seems too works (I have not tried to actually print a page, just go up to the dialog box).
What does not
There is normally a functionality that open the dictionary with the word that is on the clipboard by clicking on the small icon on the task bar. That does not works. Some problems to browse the help too (but it is not really needed to use the dictionary).
What was not tested
Everything except wasting papers to test printing.
To install; proceed this way. Copy the whole contents of the CD in a directory; say /home/myname/robert. Then launch wineconfig and configure the installation directory as a CD-ROM (Drive -> Add; click on Show advanced and in the Type, select CD) (otherwise it will ask you to insert the CD and do not recognise when you actually insert it). When it is done just launch it by "wine rcwin.exe". You might also want to disable the icon on the taskbar (that normally serves to launch the dictionary with the contents of the clipboard, but do not work); rename rcwinHyper.exe. P.S. I am the same as the Anonymous user who test it on October 29 2008; but my account expired. The situation improved since on then the pronunciation did not works.
