Anki installs perfectly.
Anki works in WINE as it does in Windows. Opening and exporting decks, studying, viewing/editing the fact list, and exporting all work fine. Japanese characters are displayed correctly (assuming you installed Japanese fonts on your system).
I need to get Microsoft IME working in WINE (SCIM has Japanese input errors), so I couldn't type Japanese into a new card. However I *did* paste a word I looked up online, in kanji, into a new card, and when I hit "Tab," it appeared to generate the correct number of phonetic characters (though they can't be displayed properly yet). Therefore, *pending installation and correct functioning of IME,* Japanese recognition appears to work.
What does not
What was not tested
I do not use the multimedia feature, so I didn't test it.
I don't synchronize my decks (it is too easy to "clobber" a deck if it was never uploaded), so I didn't test that, either.
For Windows (and WINE), install "anki-reading.exe" and "mecab.exe" before you actually start up the Anki program. (These can be downloaded from the Anki website. The order of installation makes no difference.) If you wish to add Japanese support, start Anki, click "File > Download > Shared Plugin," and choose "Japanese Support." You will need to restart Anki before using Japanese. Now you can type or paste Japanese in your flashcards, and they will recognize Japanese answers as appropriate.
