I’m just on my return to eve after 6 years of absence. I’m wonder if there is any working howto on how to launch Eve on Linux these days.
I tried it with Steam/Proton and get the Launcher to start. But the Client itself crashes immediately after the start. The launcher-log complains about:
"Can't recognize 'DirectXRedist.exe' as an internal or external command, or batch script.\r"
So I assume that I miss something very basic here.
I tried both already and they did not work for me. However, I was able to install eve with the Standard wine Installation from my distro (Ubuntu) and using winetricks to install a few packages.
Eve now works under my Linux Desktop. Yay
This, OP. I just switched to Fedora and this is how I did it, and it was painless. Valve is owning the Linux gaming space right now because of their steam Deck, and they’re making it exceptionally easy to run a whole swathe of Windows native games with Steam and Proton.
