Furcadia Client v31 (Which is the latest as of 2016):
Main Game Client, 'Pounce' Friends List and Whisper Windows (*see note below), Dream Editor (Maps), FOX Editor (Art Patches), Dragonspeak Constructor (Scripts)
What does not
(*) Whisper Windows are reported by some users not to show tag images correctly. This can be disabled in the game config GUI. I however, did not have this problem with my set up.
What was not tested
The older Dragonspeak Editor (DSEd), the older unsupported FurEd, the Skin Editor.
In-House Testing shows that Wine versions 1.8 and 1.7 do not work as well. As the stock Wine avaialble with my distro is older, one will need to use the wine developers PPA or similar. Forum thread about this available here: http://forums.furcadia.com/index.php?showtopic=84403

Dreamweaver lags because it cannot find the fonts it is looking for, and the font used by default is nearly unreadable. This is resolved by installing winetricks and the corefonts package. Alternatively, you can install msttcorefonts. Depending on your distribution, this package may be included in the default repositories or you may need to wget it from another source.
Ubuntu users, who have the package in default repositories, may use apt-get to install it:
sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts
RPM compatible distributions may use the following commands to retrieve and install msttcorefonts:
yum -y install rpm-build cabextract ttmkfdir
rpmbuild -bb msttcorefonts-2.0-1.spec
rpm -ivh /root/rpmbuild/RPMS/noarch/msttcorefonts-2.0-1.noarch.rpm --nodeps
