Additional Comments

I followed the guide here to get the game to function: * set wine to run in an emulated desktop window. To do this, run "winecfg", go to the Graphics tab, and check "Emulate a virtual desktop". The size isn't really important; I use 800x600. * extract Spelunky and create a file (if it doesn't exist) called "settings.cfg" and put these contents in it: 1 1 0 0 1 15 15 This is the default settings, tweaked to the only setting that allows it to run in Wine. You can't configure it normally since it only works in this way, so I had to have my friend change settings on his Windows box and watch what numbers changed. Thankfully for you I have done the hard work. * Run Spelunky! Double-clicking it should probably work, but if you want it to play nicely with other applications using audio at the same time, force it to use pulseaudio by running "padsp wine spelunky_0_99_5.exe". It should show a configuration window, but you can't really interact with it. Just click in it and hit enter. * Now you can play Spelunky, but it is at a 1x zoom level, the only one that plays nicely with Wine. This isn't very usable! Run "ccsm" (System -> Preferences -> CompizConfig Settings Manager") and enable "Enhanced Zoom Desktop" from the second group, "Accessibility". Now you can zoom in by holding your Super key (Windows/Apple/Ubuntu key) and scrolling your mouse wheel in or out. Using this technique you can make Spelunky effectively full screen and if you sit it right in the corner, you will forget you are doing anything strange within a few minutes.
