I installed IE4Linux, MDAC, Jet 4.0 and DCOM to get the program to run. It required a copy of these DLL's, odbcint.dll and odbc32.dll. After that, the program seemed to run until. . .
What does not
. . . I tried opening it a 2nd time and came across bug #8424, where Poker Tracker won't run a 2nd time because of a change in the Product ID. This pretty much means that I have to reinstall to get the program to run again.
What was not tested
Can't really test a program that requires a reinstall every time it closes, so nothing much was tested. Other than this problem, it seems to run fine.
I've been meaning to get around to installing PT, but I haven't had the time as of recently. I'm hoping that I can get some fix or a hack from the PT forums that will fix this problem.

Installing Poker Tracker:
Step 1 (If not done already): Install WINE from http://www.winehq.org.
If you already installed WINE, I'd start with a fresh .wine directory.
To do so, rename the .wine folder in /home/xxxxx/ (xxxxx being your
username) to .wine_backup, then running winecfg.
Step 2: Run winecfg and change the default OS to Windows 98, then hit OK.
Step 3: Install Poker Tracker. Do not patch it. Make sure it creates a desktop shortcut. You can have it make a menu shortcut to if you want (Would be wise to do so in a window manager like XFCE, fluxbox, Enlightenment that doesn't put icons on the desktop by default, not necessary in Gnome/KDE).
Step 4: Modify your desktop shortcut (There might be two, one that has a .lnk extension, and one that shows the PT Icon. Do the one with the PT Icon) so that the command looks like this:
|env LANG="en_US.UTF-8" LANGUAGE="en_US:en" WINEPREFIX="/home/corey/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\Poker Tracker V2\ptrack2.exe"|
