API for old accounts

I recently regained access to my old accounts thanks to the wonderful folks at CCP and was wondering about the old API keys. I understand that they went to a new system recently (around a year) but I’m trying to find out what each character had as well as his skill progression.
The toons are years old so I was hoping I could find a way to check them out before downloading the game. My issues with downloading the game are that this laptop is years old and the OS is Ubuntu so it probably wouldn’t work with my current system.
Thank you all for any input you can give. I know I’m not the first player coming back with this issue. The forum searches while helpful in a round about way haven’t really answered my questions.

You can authorize your characters on EVESkillBoard.com this will give you a view of your character(s) skills, unfortunately I don’t know of a website where you’d be able to check what sort of assets it/they have.

I forgot about that site. I followed through it on the character bazaar and found the skills, ships it can pilot and all that info. The most desired info is on 4 accounts with multiple toons on each account is total asset and net worth. I know my main was collecting ships/BPC’s with high ratings. Not sure what a Navy issue scorpion goes for these days. I thought I had old plex’s still as well. First toon is from 2006 and has only 19 million SP.

It’s fairly expensive compared to a few years ago, now they are only available through the FW LP store, the BPCs that is. :wink:

EVE Online runs perfectly on older Debian systems, so on Ubuntu it should work too, below are my adventures (errors and workarounds) installing it on different systems. I suggest planning on running it on a 64 bit kernel as in the near future you will have a 64 bit client. :

Installing EVE Online on Debian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch) 64-bit

Updated: [YYYY-MM-DD] 2018-11-27 by Aedaxus

Prepare the system

[as root or using sudo]

Add contrib & non-free to the sources list

nano /etc/apt/sources.list

deb http://ftp.be.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib non-free

Add i386 architecture (32bit) to the x64 (64bit) system

dpkg --add-architecture i386

apt-get update

[as normal user]

Download,extract,make exec and start the EVE Launcher for Linux :

tar -xvf evelauncher-1104891.tar.gz

cd evelauncher

[as root]

apt-get install build-essential

apt-get install libfontconfig1

I put a file called ‘evestart’ in my home folder, I had to make many changes and installed ‘locate’ (apt-get install locate) to find the ‘

translation’ files required:

#Adapted to my USER folder also removed the extra slash at end


#Find the location of the libssl.so (“updatedb” to create index then “locate libssl.so”)

if [ ! -e $dirname/libssl.so ]; then

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.1.0.2 $dirname/libssl.so


#Find the location of the libssl.so (“updatedb” to create index then “locate libcrypto.so”)

if [ ! -e $dirname/libcrypto.so ]; then

ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.2 $dirname/libcrypto.so


#Link the missing translations

ln -s /opt/Qt5.7.0/5.7/gcc_64/translations /home/pctv2017/evelauncher/

#Start the launcher

exec $dirname/evelauncher.sh

Got an Error :

nouveau: kernel rejected pushbuf: No such file or directory

The nouveau display driver is not happy, so we need to revert to a propriatary one. This might be specific for my nvidia card as it runs fine on an Intel gpu on another system.

Two ways to solve this, I am doing the “sloppy burger” way :

[as root]

apt-get install nvidia*

Normal people should first use “lspci” and find out what type of gpu you have, then just get the specific driver and install it.

Got no errors but didn’t start, launcher empty but does launch a restricted bare launcher…

[as root]

Install wine

apt-get install wine

PS: in case win32 failed to install repeat :

dpkg --add-architecture i386

apt-get update

apt-get install wine32

There is no error but when you click the play or > on the Launcher nothing will happen and the game will not start

It starts!

Also: be patient as evelauncher copies server files silently (for all servers selected under settings, so feel free to unselect the test servers) and does some configurations at the first successful launch… if you want to not have all files downloaded (8GB) select ‘download everything’ in the settings menu.

A few reboots later, and after updating some firmware drivers… EVE Launcher would no longer start the client, pressing the triangle would make it into a square then load the bar below about half then pop back into the triangle. This can be solved by :

[as root]

apt-get install libldap-2.4-2:i386

No idea how I removed this in the process of updating some fw…

When testing the different Graphic Content settings in the EVE Menu, I noticed that setting ‘postprocessing’ to anything else than ‘none’ I got random amounts of black squares on the screen.

How long did you wait for a reply?
I’m in the same boat, my email mysteriously has one extra .com in it so I never receive the email.
I opened a ticket but I wonder how long until they answer?

I waited about a week to week and a half. In the ticket I informed them of the old E-mail account, as well as my name and the name of my main toon and the new e-mail that I needed all the information sent to. I didn’t include any type of payment information since I haven’t used that card/pay-pal account in years and didn’t have it anymore. Just add as much information in the ticket as possible. My 4 acounts were from 2006-2012 or so, yours may take less time depending on the information you gave or how far back they need to dig.
Hope this helps.

Thanks, oh well then I won’t be able to join back for xmas.
My account must also be from around 2006-2009 so let’s see.
