You'll need to run a virtual machine. Wine won't be able to handle it. Look into install VirtualBox (not necessarily the best but easier).

You can use the Mono Development IDE to write .NET code in Ubuntu, rather than trying to use a Microsoft product in a non-Microsoft OS (which others have rightly pointed out is never going to be supported, easy, or in MS' best interests).

Sorry to give you the wrong answer, but I really doubt this will ever be truly supported. Some people might actually get it working someday, but Microsoft will most certainly never support this officially; or even make things easy for the community, for that matter.
