What works

Everything.

What does not

Tiny shadowing glitches in character creation, but they do not show up in-game.

Sometimes it takes 20-30 seconds for the patcher to launch the game, during which time you'll think it crashed, but it hasn't.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Fullscreen mode.

Gameplay past level 15. 

Running in a compositing window manager.

Additional Comments

Running Ubuntu 12.04 32-bit server edition, gdm+openbox (no gnome or compiz or any of that), Geforce 8800GT. Running wine out of ubuntu wine ppa (https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ppa). Procedure that worked for me: 1. Download full client via "direct download" at http://www.gamersfirst.com/fallenearth/?q=download . 2. Start with a fresh .wine/ . 3. Run winecfg. Set windows version to XP. This is needed later for IE7 to install. 4. Install game. When prompted, I let it install DirectX, too. 5. When installed completes, /uncheck/ "Run Fallen Earth" and exit the installer. 6. Execute "winetricks ie7". When prompted, do /not/ install the microsoft malware widget thingy. 7. cd into the installation directory and "wine FEUpdater.exe". 8. Patch the game to the latest version. 9. Select options, set game to Windowed Mode, and select a resolution slightly smaller than your screen size. 10. Launch game via the Launch button on the patcher. 11. The first launch after patching, the game may not start. Exit the patcher, ensure that all wine processes have terminated, and restart the patcher. The game will launch just fine every time afterwards. 12. Watch all of your free time get sucked away.
