The plan:

install ubuntu 18.04 lts

use wine32 to run Scrivener, Scapple, and a few other programs

Will I need to create a c: drive to install the windows programs?

Other considerations?

I suggest to use "Play on Linux". You only have to choice which program you want to install and POL will handle it.

If you're using the new 2.9/3 beta, I'd highly recommend a 64-bit prefix. Scapple should run under it, as well, but 64-bit Scrivener is much faster than the 32-bit one.

I'm running scrivener for Windows under wine 3.0.4 using a flavour of Ubuntu 18.04.1 (UbuntuStudio).

There was no need to create especially a C: drive. I think installation of wine takes care of that.

It works ok for me and I keep my active Scrivener project in a Dropbox folder which looks after the sync with a W10 box.
