What works

Installs, runs, can create a new project with chapters and scenes, add text to scenes, add characters/locations/items.

Does not use any custom controls, databases or dlls. Was designed to be wine/mono friendly.

See comment about winetricks comctl32 below.

Additional Comments

You need to run winetricks dotnet2sp2 and comctl32 (without the latter, context menus will not appear on listviews when you right-click.) Richtext control 2.0 may also be required.
