Messaging, Sound, Settings, simply everything you love QIP for...
What does not
desktop integration (Show on top pin does not work, window resizing visual glitches, no gtk style at all), autostart via QIP internal settings, Auto-NA (if you switch workspaces QIP goes automatically into NA/Away Mode as configured in its settings)
What was not tested
only gold because you have to install additional packages and have to add a start parameter

You will need the winbind-Package. If you use Distros like Ubuntu and Debian you can simply install it with:
"sudo aptitude install winbind"
It's also recommended not to use animated Smilies.
1. Install winbind (ntlm_auth is required).
2. Download and launch the installer with wine.
3. Go to your QIP-Directory (should be ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ FIles/QIP)
4. Open current.cfg in your "Skins"-Directory
5. Replace the number "1" to 0
6. Start qip (e.g. wine C:\\Program\ FIles\\QIP\\qip.exe)
note: Instead of changing your (Skin-)config you can also try to start qip with the "/oldgif"-Parameter:
wine "C:\Program Files\QIP\qip.exe /oldgif"
