There were several installation errors relating to access control lists, but skipping them and continuing on allowed the installation to finish. Immediately after installing most of the synthesis plug-ins work. By following the How-to on the FL Studio 7 page the rest should work just fine. A list of what I've tried so far and gotten to work includes: 3x Osc Autogun TS404 BooBass Chrome FL Keys FL Slayer FPC Fruit Kick Harmless Ogun Poizone Sawer SimSynth Sytrus Toxic Biohazzard Wasp Wasp XT
What does not
Using a stock (Ubuntu) kernel, latency was a pretty big issue. The granualizer plugin seems to not be working at all. The windows are sometimes a bit slow to redraw, but overall not too bad. The news section is also broken, at least to my knowledge. I have not seen a complete crash yet and after following the version 7 how-to most of the plug-ins I was going to say don't work magically do again.
What was not tested
I haven't had a chance to test all the import/export options. I also didn't test Rewire, audio recording, or synthmaker.
Reposting the how-to from version 7 to here would be nice since it still seems to apply.

wine notepad 'C:\windows\system.ini' or your favorite *nix text editor (*nix path is '~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system.ini') ...And then add this in the drivers32 section: MSACM.vorbis=vorbis.acm Good luck!!!
