aim via wine is not that great.
If you need aim, try pidgin or kopete.

the bad thing about Wine is that it's pretty hit or miss. have you tried Pidgin? it supports AIM and is supported in the Ubuntu repos. you can install it with


sudo apt-get install pidgin

Your options are not that good I am afraid, AIM works like crap in wine even if you get it working and they dont like linux that much...
