'Linux' is too vague. AFAIK none of this runs on Linux on Sparc or PPC for example.

Tobias Verbeke referred to a thread which is AFAICS about building an ix86 Linux bugs executable from the distributed brugs.so in OpenBUGS. If you can get that to run (and like Uwe, I get a trap), you can then communicate with that bugs executable via files (in the same way that R2WinBUGS communicates with WinBUGS).

It is not clear to me that the Windows classicbugs.exe or winbugs.exe in OpenBUGS could not be run under Wine with communication via files, but R2WinBUGS is not set up to do so.
