What does not
Alt-viewing. Seems that Gnome hijacks the alt-click functionality, so it's impossible to alt-click. There's probably a way of disabling that in Gnome, but I don't know how. Regardless, alt-clicking is nearly worthless... you just can't finish the tutorial.
Game did not want to run at first. So it must be mentioned that the game needs to run in the directory that it was installed to. Go there via the terminal, or write a script to do it for you, then run "wine homeworld.exe" from that location. Passing in the path doesn't. work.
What was not tested
The last few levels. Completed 10 levels, working great so far. Movies, Sound, Graphics, all work VERY well. Maxed out detail on everything, and no slowdown at all.
Install went okay after I deleted my previous wine profile. Upgraded to 1.05, and applied a No-CD crack in order to play.
