There is no Wineskin Linux version because Wineskin is deigned for Mac OS X only.

Just download "Wine" from WineHQ for Linux. http://www.winehq.org/download/ It's non-GUI and command line like this.

P.S. Wrong spell. It's Linux, not lunix. /fail

Wine was originally made for Linux.  When Apple switched to x86, the Wine people started putting in support for OSX since it was now x86 compatible.  Much of Linux and how Wine works is against Apple's guidelines and norms... so it doesn't really fit in to well, hence many 3rd party programs using Wine.

Wineskin is a method and a combination of Wine and X11 and all the support libraries they need bundled up in a Mac app bundle.  Much of the extra things needed for OSX are not needed on Linux because Wine is made with Linux as its number 1 priority.... just like its designed only to work with X11, the windowing system used for Linux... and why there needs to be an extra X11 layer on Macs to be able to run it.
