Additional Comments

To run the game, Wine needs to be set to Windows XP mode to bypass Steam's service installation (which fails on Windows 7). After doing this, place a file named "steam_appid.txt" with the contents '49520' (without quotes), in the Steam\steamapps\common\BorderĀ­lands 2\Binaries\Win32 folder. After doing this, run the Borderlands2.exe (NOT the launcher.exe) with Wine directly while Steam is running.

HowTo / Notes

How to start the game without the launcher

The borderlands lancher is not working with wine. But to run the game, it is this application that steam starts first. To work around the problem, do the following:

Create a file named steam_appid.txt with the contents "49520" (without quotes).

Put this files into the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder

 Then, every time you runs the game, first runs steam, and only when steam is running, start the game by running Borderlands2.exe (in the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder)
