Installation works with Wine, but I had to go through the Terminal to download and install Direct X; otherwise, the installation would freeze and cancel itself.
What does not
After installing the game, the menu shows up as a blank white screen- it shows that there are objects on the screen that you should be able to click on, but the window is non-responsive.
