Additional Comments

Copy the DVD or extract the image.Edit the autorun.cfg to skip the directx9 installation. Install manually in terminal with $ winetricks directx9 and then run the installation. To patch the resolution,rename the speed.exe to speed2.exe, use uniws.exe and type your screen resolution,save and rename the file back to speed.exe. I installed wine-staging from wine repo and enabled the EAX to solve the issue from pulseaudio. And installed the intel graphics from backports to enable blur effect.

uniws is not required

If you do wineconfig and emulate virtual desktop with any resolution, uniws is not needed. Changing the resolution will just work ingame. Of course, the highest will be 1280x since that's what the game natively supports.
