Version 11 and 12 with Wine 0.9.40 and later, using Kubuntu Feisty and now 

Version 10 and earlier won't install.  There was a problem when I last tried 
installing X3, I can't remember what it was, but perhaps that has changed 
since I last tried, I haven't checked for some time now.

Quattro Pro does not work (a pity) and Presentations for the little I have 
tried it, does.  (Quattro Pro has worked a few versions of wine ago, but not 
at present)

WordPerfect has a few quirks (I don't file bug reports any more, because 
nobody ever attends to them), but once you have made your peace with that. 
you'll find it works as intended and is stable enough to commit your work to 
it - I do and I have not had any mishap yet.

There are a few things that do not work, like macros, but for me it's not 

Be warned, there are a few hoops to jump when you start the software and how 
you set it up, but once it's loaded it will work.

Good luck
