What works

Everything I used on Windows works now, even hotkeys work with recent wine.

Hotkeys, sending keys, mouse clicks, menus, tooltips, even ImageSearch works.

What does not

Nothing I had no use for, AutoHotkey has many features and I don't even know all of them.

Additional Comments

Wine had problems with Hotkeys in AutoHotkey and didn't work, but now it works like a charm.

A fully compiled file host or instructions

So generally, I'm having endless issues with this, could someone give out more information or a pre-compiled installation?

You need to download ahkx and run ./build. For that to work, you might need to install some libraries. See the INSTALL file. I could not get the build process running with wine 2.x, so (only for building), I downloaded the wine1.6-dev package. After that, put the AutoHotkey.dll file in the same directory, downloaded from here You can now run an ahk script using `wine scriptfile`. From there on, the scripts don't execute properly. I opened a GitHub issue for this.

tl;dr: does not work.
