Additional Comments

Almost EVERYTHING works as supposed INCLUDING on... I PLAYED ONLINE IN UNRANKED/NON_PUNKBUSTER SERVERS. I'm using kernel 3.3.4 compiled by me... I'm using wine 1.5.3 compiled by me... I'm using NVIDIA driver 302.07... When i install wine i always install at least this stuff....all of it is sooner or later force-installed anyway by one or another game so... export WINEDEBUG=-all && winetricks d3dx9 dotnet20 dxdiagn xact gfw physx vcrun2005 vcrun2008 winetricks vcrun2010 windowscodecs After game install, i update it before 1st run using an update from a link to a manual update found in EA UK Forum...this is latest update that removes also SecuROM check, so, that is no longer a problem.... At 1st run game problem, close it, or kill anyway you can using at last resort a terminal and.... wineserver -k ...then open file.... ~/BFBC2/settings.ini ...and modify from... DxVersion=auto DxVersion=9 ...that solves the lock problem....and from.... SpeakerCount=0 SpeakerCount=2 ...and THAT solves the AUDIO issue (i use TWO speakers in my PC, YMMV) Only thing not perfect is some graphical glitches when you select some gadgets like med kit but they go away as you change to something else.... CYA in the (unranked) Battlefield (making a) Bad Company 2 :D

HowTo / Notes


 Securom sollution by kowaltsky:

Sollution by Alan Luth doesnt works for me, I have got another one:

- make sure, than Battlefield Bad Company 2 is in your DVD-rom!

1) open Terminal and use this command:  sudo mkdir /mnt/cdrom

2) Open Wine settings (applications - wine)

3) Switch to tab witch discs

4) add drive D: and add mount point:  /mnt/cdrom

5) now last step, open Terminal and use this command:

sudo mount -o ro,loop,uid=$UID,unhide /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
  ln -s /dev/sr0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/d::
  winemine &
  ln -s /mnt/cdrom ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:

If that doesnt work, try sollution by Alan Luth.

Securom sollution by Alan Luth:

If you get Securom errors that the game cannot find the DVD, see:


short answer, try mounting with -o uid=$UID,unhide.

Also make sure you have symlinks to both the device and the mount point in ~/.wine/dosdevices

I have to avoid wineboot deleting my d: symlink before running this game. The whole recipe looks like

  sudo mount -o ro,loop,uid=1002,unhide /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
  ln -s /dev/sr0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/d::
  winemine &
  ln -s /mnt/cdrom ~/.wine/dosdevices/d:
DirectX Version

For this game, DirectX must be manually set to version 9 (default is 10).

To do this, do the following:

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/users/[username]/My Documents/BFBC2

Edit settings.ini and set the value of DxVersion from Auto to 9

Possible Sound Problem Fix

This how-to extracted from a May 10th, 2012 comment by AJSB. This has not yet been tested by the current maintainer (Scott Weldon).

To fix sound problems, edit the file "~/BFBC2/settings.ini" Find the following line:


and change it to, e.g.:
