Admin note: the instructions below are extremely old and may not apply to current Wine. Follow at your own risk.
Install the game
Configuring Wine for GTA:VC
Make sure the option "Allow the window manager to control the windows" in winecfg (tab "Graphics") is activated.
To kill off a running, but not responding, GTA (and any other programs/processes that Wine is running), run "wineserver -k". You may need to log in to a text-only terminal by hitting Ctrl+Alt+F1 (on most distributions).
