Installation worked fine, even faster than Windows via downloadable Client. (However, there was some strange downloading issues: It went really slow for client download/installation but went very fast for downloading area data; probably my connection, thought it was worth noting, though)
Most everything seems to be working, it also seems to idle less at 100% loaded than a Windows install does, if it does at all.
Created a new character in Nightfall with minor issues.
What does not
Fullscreen does not seem to work. Initially it did, however I put it into windowed and now selecting Fullscreen - 'resolution' in Graphics menu will remove the window border but keep it the same size as the window mode; restart seems to revert this.
Anti-Aliasing does not work.
3D sound does not work, audio stops unless disabled. Possibly my computer.
When creating character: armor color did not fully update, parts of boots and armor were still the default color when changing in character creation, restart fixed this; hair color wouldn't fully update in the selection screen, parts of the mesh would still be the previous color, seems to fix itself at the next step.
What was not tested
Prophecies, Factions and Eye of the North campaigns and expansion, PvP and PvP Observation and Equipment Dye.
TexMod doesn't seem to work. Played with max settings.

NOTE: Guild Wars usually doesn't require any special settings to get working. The advice listed below is only for those who require help installing, running, or troubleshooting Guild Wars.
Simply use the installer found at guildwars.com. Unzip the installer and run it using Wine:
WINEDEBUG=-all wine "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Gw.exe"
WINEDEBUG=-all will stop the flood of fixme messages generated from normal use. If you require debugging, omit this option.
If you are having graphics issues, use regedit to try some registry keys:
Appending these flags to the run command may help you:
