Additional Comments

dotnet20 installed via winetricks.

Make sure you configure the drives properly, else EAC won't be able to see them. My configuration is :

Drive D: set to /mnt/dvd0, E: set to /mnt/dvd1 in winecfg.
/mnt/dvd0 and /mnt/dvd1 are present in /etc/fstab and point to /dev/sr0 and sr1, respectively. They don't need to be mounted while running EAC, and it's not possible to mount Audio CDs anyway.
The user running Wine must have read/write access to the drive's raw block device. On Debian, it's enough to add the user to the cdrom group.

You can apply this patch to the source and make a custom Wine build in case you want the plugin functionality to work.
