What does not
AFAICT, everything works fine.
What was not tested
It runs silky smooth on 16-bits and even 8-bit textures, and on every possible resolution. It even works perfectly using hardware acceleration instead of software rendering, although the map gets "squary" (i.e., some areas like the coast, which usually has some sand sprinkled over to give the impression of a realistic shore, loses the sprinkled sand and looks perfectly square, like a checkered board).

Nothing special to mind, simply run
$ WINEPREFIX=/path/to/Tropico/prefix wine /path/to/_setup/Setup.exe
You should cd into the installation directory, otherwise Tropico might fail with an empty error box. Therefore the invocation looks like (if you installed into the default directory):
$ cd /path/to/Tropico/prefix/drive_c/Program\ files/Troico && WINEPREFIX=/path/to/Tropico/prefix wine Tropico.EXE
No other settings are needed to become El Presidente.
