What works

* Installation
* Starting the game manually from the command line via "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Prey Demo$ wine prey.exe" without quotes; because no desktop shortcut was placed during installation.
* Uninstall via "wine uninstaller" without quotes

What does not

~ On a system tested with no sound card and only on board sound, the sound didn't work at all; attempting to change the sound setting from stereo to surround on this system with on board sound ran the hard drive like crazy slowing the system down almost to a halt, I managed to exit out of the application by hitting ALT+F2 and typing "killall wineserver" without quotes, but it took 30 seconds or longer after I pressed ALT+F2 for the window to appear, and that much longer when I typed the above for the words actually to appear in the Run Command window.
~ On another system with a sound card the sound worked but skipped
~ Game randomly quits back to the desktop but when started again and resumed at the point where it quit, it resumes okay and plays fine.
