Everything works once you install native version of riched20.dll in fake system32 directory. If you don't need chat, you can skip the native version.
Like another user, I installed the preXP version. Also, I told Wine Config that the application was for Windows 2000, thought I don't know if that is strictly necessary.
This program is a joy to use. The user interface is the best going.
What does not
Chat won't work properly and will cause program to crash without native riched20.dll. Also, if you try to use the builtin many of the preferences that depend on the Rich Edit control won't be available.
What was not tested
the other native Linux program that is pretty good is PyChess.

One of the users mentions
"It seems that you must choose "everyone" (Who can use this programm at setup window) and NOT "just me". If you choose "just me" then babaschess crash and you have to do a new installation of babaschess."
I have found the zip packages to to best. You can find them on the download page (http://www.babaschess.net/download.asp) towards the middle.
I tend to turn off the emoticons in the program.
