This topic has been discussed many times on the AutoIt forums. One of the more recent ones that I can remember is this one, by far the most comprehensive about it is here.

Some features of AutoIt do work under wine. However, some of the more powerful automation function are very windows specific so I doubt they will work perfectly.

However, wine is not the answer. You are much better off finding alternatives that are native to linux. A few ideas that might be worth investigating:

  • Java, using classes such as java.awt.Robot
  • Python, google for python automation libraries for linux, like uinput or dogtail.
  • Any of the tools listed on this page.

Look at expect or shell scripting or xautomation
