I just did that and it works but there is a problem with wxmaxima graphics (only draw a box).
Using the gnuplot option it works ok. I'm using Ubuntu 8.10
P.D. These are the steps:
sudo apt-get install wine
get maxima-5.17.1.exe from sourceforge
copy maxima-5.17.1.exe to /home/yourname/.wine/drive_c
wine "c:\Archivos de programa\Maxima-5.17.1.exe"
wine "c:\Archivos de programa\wxMaxima\wxMaxima.exe"
This can be useful to test new versions in Linux and Windows.
