What works

Install via *.exe installer.

Area's built-in opening book works.

Area's built-in legacy engines.

Adding, configuring and playing additional free engines, mainly downloaded from (here or here)

Playing Engine tournaments.

Auto-closing, auto-restarting Arena and continuing the tournament w/o user interaction.

Stopping, and later resuming tournaments.

What does not

Very few engines (and these are not very strong engines) do not work properly: After the opening book is finished, the engine "thinks" forever and makes no more move. These engines are:

- GNUChess 6.11

- GNUChess 6.12tm

- ZChess 2.22

(Maybe these problems are not related to "wine")

Additional Comments

Linux Mint 17 is based on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, so Ubuntu 14.04 users should be happy, too.
