Early story missions I played so far
Mod fixes such as silent patch
What does not
Mouse click stops working if the game is paused. Sometimes both mouse click and mouse movement stop working if the game is paused. Sometimes mouse click and/or mouse movement randomly stop working during gameplay
What was not tested
Complete playthrough (currently on early game)
Modloader and heavy modding
Mouse issues can be fixed by ticking "emulate a virtual desktop" on winecfg. Intro videos are broken but can be skipped, you can also remove them. Game works best when Wine is set to windows xp mode on winecfg as it is known for having issues with windows vista and above. CPU-bound performance is better than windows when using a multicore CPU and enabling CSMT on winecfg, although the game does run heavier on the GPU.

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).
