Haven't tested it much, but it seems to mostly be working, except the help system seems to crash the game entirely.
What does not
When it's in windowed mode and I type /help, it crashes. When it's fullscreen, it locks up and I have to manually kill wine.
What was not tested
A lot. I logged in, walked around a bit, did some things with the GUI, and that was about it.
/help not working is annoying, but avoidable. The help button still works fine, and other chat commands work fine, so it's nothing more than an inconvenience.

This step-by-step guide will help you install and run AO in Linux (including fully working patcher and launcher). Note that this guide is COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED.
Funcom support staff will NOT help you with anything related to this
guide, or any problems you might encounter with the install while
playing using this setup.
1) Download the Wine source
3) Compile and install Wine
4) Install IE6 using winetricks (this step is needed for patching and for the launcher content to render correctly):
wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks sh winetricks ie6
5) Download the 18.1.1 full AO installer.
6) Run the AO installer. Accept the default install path.
7) Create a startup script (optional). Save it with whatever name you want (ao.sh, for example).
ÂÂÂÂ#!/bin/bash export WINEPREFIX=~/.wineÂ cd $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files/Funcom/Anarchy\ Online WINEDEBUG=-all ÂÂÂwine Anarchy.exeÂÂÂ chmod a+x ao.shÂ
8) Run the script (if you followed step 5).ÂÂ
