Had to copy msvcr71.dll over from my Windows\system32 folder to get past the splash/loading screen. Also had to copy over "\Documents and Settings\brian\Trillian" to /home/brian/.wine/drive_c/windows/profiles/brian/ from my Windows XP Trillian install.

Some compatiblity issues with Compiz-Fusion should be expected, but it runs really well with CF, too. Because Trillian ships with its own borders you might want to do the following:
1. Open "CompizConfig Settings Manager"
2. Go to Effects/Window Decoration/General
3. add !(name=trillian) to "Decoration Windows"
This will prevent the window decorator to draw its window borders. You will use all the compiz effects if you do this though, so you might consider keeping the window decorator enabled for Trillian.
As the prefernces dialog is quite unstable, you can use the .ini files to configure Trillian. They are usually residing at:
If you loose your internet connection or if there are short interruptions, you might experience a lag between the connection breaking up and Trillian noticing that it is gone.
