I've put together a Wine wrapper for Deus Ex, allowing it to be played on Linux almost like a native game & with no Wine knowledge required. This package uses "Deus Exe" 8.1 by Kentie and Chris Dohnal's enhanced OpenGL renderer.
Simply place the script, resource archive and installer files together in the same directory & run the script. The output is a directory containing a "GOG-style" ready-to-go Wine-wrapped version of the game (the build script also has the option to create a tarball of the assembled game package); from there installation is simply a case of moving the directory to wherever you want it installed to - then just run the start script to play :)
Running the start script with the argument "-s" will have it create a shortcut at a location of your choice.
User data is stored under ~/.local/share/deusex
Full details are in the readme.txt and release notes. Here is the download link:

Updated 2018/03/02: The wrapper now includes the ability to easily set some advanced Wine configuration options and set a joystick/thumbstick dead zone. In addition, the start script will now abort if it fails to read the current desktop resolution. There have also been some other misc small fixes and enhancements.
The wrapper uses Wine 3.0 with CSMT enabled. Wine and Winetricks will be downloaded automatically if not present; to avoid redownloading for other scripts the downloaded Wine package will be stored in ~/.cache/winewrap
I've done very little testing with these particular versions of Wine & Deus Exe but I've done a complete playthrough using earlier versions and it ran perfectly, and there's no reason to think this may have changed. However if anyone does run into any problems then post in this thread, Adamhm's Linux Wine Wrappers - News, FAQ & Discussion and/or The "Judas™ does this run in Wine" thread v1.173.
Multiplayer has not been tested and may or may not work, same for Revision.

Should Deus Ex: Human Revolution ever find its way here I plan to make a wrapper for that too - AFAIK it should run quite well in Wine :)
