[Official] WINE info thread
My ATI card scores well over 1000 on that site and won't play the game smoothly in Wine. Nvidia should be fine though with the GLSL disabled as noted by others.

Game runs very well with PlayOnLinux, I'm using WINE version 1.5.3.
Everything except shadows are on max state, I have to disable shadows otherwise it looks really terrible.
I've got 60 fps the whole time, my system specs:
Linux Mint 13
AMD Phenom II 965
Geforce 450 GTS
8 GB RAM

thanks for info, have to try that. 1.5.22 was crashing for me with usp10.

Did anyone already find a fix for the font corruption issue?

EDIT: Fixed issue, had to install some missing 32 bit libraries.

It would be great if all the new info could be updated in the first post (like using newer versions of Wine, which things to install via winetricks if you use this or that version, or if you using PlayOnLinux, etc). Reading through 49 pages isn't fun :P (but I'll do it, I really want to run PoE under Linux as smooth as possible).
Btw, thank you for all the research and testing ppl :)

Just use Play On Linux
Everything is done automatically.
It will take a while to install and do everything. I left the pc on overnight.
In the morning I was ready to play the game.
NO news about LINUX SUPPORT???????

I guess they will stick to the wine version.
do you have the font issue fixed within playonlinux?

Lubuntu 12.10 64bit Unpatched Wine HOWTO
Tested and works with:
Lubuntu 12.10 64bit
wine-1.4.1 (unpatched, a regular install from the repository)
ATI Radeon HD 4200
All gameplay works smoothly.
# I'm not sure how much of this is actually necessary:
\sudo apt-get install \
` # `
\wine msiexec /a ./PathOfExileInstaller.msi
# (I installed to the default location)
# To solve the audio freeze when using active skills:
# winecfg > Libraries > openal32
` # `
# Ensure that the production_config.ini and Minimap have a home:
\mkdir "~/.wine/drive_c/users/user/My Documents/My Games/Path of Exile"
\cd "~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Grinding Gear Games/Path of Exile"
WINENOPULSE=1 \wine ./Client.exe >> /dev/null 2>&1
"~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Grinding Gear Games/Path of Exile/production_config.ini" contains:
adapter_name=ATI Radeon HD 5600 Series
Attempting to change the video settings from within the game (at any point in it) results in a serious video issue. My computer hangs unless I have wine set to use a virtual desktop. production_config.ini must be edited by hand to change video settings. All non-video settings can be safely changed from within the game.
I turned the video settings down to the minimum. The game looks fine and plays smoothly. There is some stuttering when new mobs are first seen, but it's not bad at all. I suspect there is a leak over time, because the stuttering got worse as I played on. Perhaps it's the landscape or weather of the higher-level stuff.
I played for a good long time, getting to the siren who's special power is to make me lag and die horribly, forcing me to run through several zones just to get back and earn the right to lag and die horribly again. Perhaps there are technical solutions for that lag so that I can do fights like that without resorting to skeletons, traps and a crapload of kiting.
Some of the fonts are a bit crappy, but everything is readable enough.
Also, I did end up copying the save files from a Windows install to save time.

I can confirm that 1.5.23 works without crashing with openal overridden and usp10 installed via winetricks onto the PlayOnLinux PoE prefix.
I made a quick tut earlier on how to do the Openal tweak (it's on page 44 of this thread if you need to do that). Here's the usp10 tweak for PlayOnLinux:
If you don't have 1.5.23 installed in PlayOnLinux yet, do so then switch the prefix PoE is installed on to use the new version. I won't cover that because you probably already know how if you are reading this.
In a terminal....
sudo ln -s /usr/bin/wine ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.5.23/wine
Then, go to PlayOnLinux. Click the configure button, the prefix PoE is installed on, Misc tab, "open a shell", type winetricks usp10. After it installs into the PoE prefix directory, go back to the terminal and ....
sudo rm ~/.PlayOnLinux/wine/linux-x86/1.5.23/wine
.... to clean up the symlink you made earlier.
