EVE Installing

Yes wine-staging is currently 4.18-1


Maybe Manjaro hasn’t updated yet?

Yes maybe you should start a discord for eve linux people :slight_smile: @Gharim_Turen

Another update and hopefully the last for this year but before Christmas for sure. :slight_smile: Download sources are on AUR as always (have there a look on evesetup). As long previous versions work for you, there is no need to update to revision 6. Happy holidays and…

When I had to buy a new laptop it came with W10, and Linux was the natural antivirus system to adopt. Over a decade of solely using Windows has limited my technical skills (To HTML and basic JS), so I am currently only able to do Linux stuff if I can name and google it.
Which was why I was delighted that Eve Uni has a guide!

However, after getting through the guide I found two issues. First, Terminal seems to encounter an error when installing (Though as you can see, I followed the EveU guide without noticing at first) and when I wanted to check whether the installer worked at all, I realised that the launcher opens fine, but when I try to launch the game itself, it doesn’t work.
Is this a common issue with a guide to solve? What steps can I do to troubleshoot, and what would you fine people need to know to assist?

Hi, Alphea. Nice to meet you here. :slight_smile: It seems, you are on a Ubuntu distribution to install the evelauncher using the guide from UniWiki but this guide is quite outdated. IDK in which evelaucher version CCP has changed the qtwebengine. The sql errors comes from incompatibility to newer ones. To solve this error remove the CCP directory in your ~/.local/share with

rm -rfv ~/.local/share/CCP

Please download the latest evelauncher binary from here:


to try the UniWiki way again and please, use NOT the build-in wine version from the launcher, use a custom wine like the wiki has this described. So you can use then DXVK, which is a great perfomance boost for EVE but only with a custom wine. DXVK can be installed with winetricks (which is also recommended) like so:

env WINEPREFIX=~/.eve/wineenv winetricks dxvk

Check your input lines twice, in your last line on the 2nd screenshot you have a typo, sudo and edit are two commands.

HTH :slight_smile:

Ups just seen, the typo are in the wiki, but changes nothing, should be sudo edit

PS. On Ubuntu distributions you have maybe difficulties launch the game itself because of incompatibilities of installed xcb libraries. In this case just remove the xcb-libraries in the evelauncher directory like so:

rm -v /Path/To/evelauncher/libxcb*

You can find me on TiS discord :wink:

It’s time for another update. :slight_smile: The highlight of revision 8 of my evesetup package are a reworked evebackup script which produces now portable client setting archives in users Documents/EVE directory.
These archives hold all client settings for all known servers (which i know atm), including fittings, overlay settings and so on and can be used on different EVE setups as long the used hardware are the same (or better :wink: ) which was used during the backup process.
It doesn’t matter if you use wine from your distribution or from WineHQ or use a proton version via Steam, the only thing you must know, where your eve profile folder are located, in most cases are this

$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/users/$EVEUSER/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE

If you use only my package then does everestore this for you (after you have the archives from a external storage into your Documents/EVE folder copied). For more explanations have a look at this thread: how-to-never-lose-your-ship-fittings-and-eve-settings

The sources can you find on AUR under evesetup as always.

Nice update!

having issues with latest update:

Thanks for the hint :slight_smile: That is the disadvantage when you maintain more than one variant of the same project. It works with the independed installer but i forgot to insert the absolute path to the translation archives in the PKGBUILD script. With revision 11 should it work now.

Thanks so much for this, Can get in contact with you on how to do this? I’d love to learn more and contribute!

Getting wine crashes with the latest build @Gharim_Turen

Which wine-version are you using? Works flawless here:

Used nvidia-drivers are 440.82 all others see the screenshot. There is nothing atm what i can do with my script package as long the linux launcher is stuck on qt version 5.11 and openssl version 1.0.

This is btw the reason while no newer qt-versions can be used anymore. Newer versions depends on openssl 1.1.x and when the launcher connect with qtwebengine for SSO she try to use openssl 1.1.x instead 1.0.x but uses functions from openssl 1.0.x which are no longer supported.

@CCP_Bartender can you fix that please by building a new linux launcher with qt version >= 5.12 and openssl version 1.1.x ?

P.S. Today wine from version 5.5 to 5.7 updated. Nothing changed, it works. Only other things from the last update yesterday broke my gnome-desktop but by disabling some gnome-shell-extensions he work again (joy of a rolling release model).

Based on the good work of @CCP_Bartender with the new beta launcher is it possible to using this beta version with Arch’s qt system libraries again (atm version 5.14 on Manjaro).

If you want to try this out i have created a custom build script which can be used with the last snapshot from my AUR package to create a package (other Distro’s are not included atm).
But beware, it’s still beta so be warned. :wink:

Copy this as PKGBUILD.beta in the downloaded source directory then build the package with
makepkg -sf -p PKGBUILD.beta

After successful build install it with
sudo pacman -U --asdeps <insert packagename here>

If you have used my scripts before, i recommend make a backup from your ingame settings with evebackup before you launch the beta version, because the cleanest way to use it is to begin by zero.

Meaning remove all directories in your $HOME which was used from EVE (except Documents/EVE where your backups are stored), evelauncher will create it again.

rm -rf $HOME/.cache/CCP
rm -rf $HOME/.config/CCP
rm -rf $HOME/.local/share/CCP
rm -rf $HOME/.local/lib/EVE

First important thing is cancel the update to 1548102 and set in Settings the launcher on Beta.
While he download his stuff you can restore your (hopefully saved) ingame settings with everestore

Optional but highly recommended install dxvk with evewinetricks -q dxvk

For updates, glitches and errors have a look at this thread New launcher beta: 1732117 . The most nasty bug which i have atm is he doesn’t close so i have to kill all remaining processes of evelauncher by hand with killall evelauncher . Have a look on your running processes after close him. :wink:

– fly safe o7

The last days i have updated the beta package of evesetup to the latest version of the beta launcher and added some improvements.

As an optional dependency i have added AUR - dxvk-bin which were installed (only the d3d11 part) if present on the system and setup_dxvk are executable.

In EVE.conf i have evelauncher version set to beta so that by the first start no more downloads from the standard evelauncher should be occur.

For the displayed error about missing roots.pem i have added a workaround which create a symlink in directory
/usr/local/share/grpc/roots.pem to /opt/evesetup-beta/lib/roots.pem but only, if the directory in /usr/local/share doesn’t exist.

Hi, just joined after I’ve read about the amazing job carried out by @Gharim_Turen.
I am fighting with the eve launcher since weeks without results.
Only here on the @Gharim_Turen’s post I found valuable replies but still I am not able to fix.

Here is my issue:

~/evelauncher$ ./evelauncher.sh 
QObject::startTimer: Timers can only be used with threads started with QThread
/home/stuffnex/evelauncher/./evelauncher: symbol lookup error: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGLX_mesa.so.0: undefined symbol: xcb_dri3_get_supported_modifiers

@Gharim_Turen already posted on this issue with:

You have on your system the libxcb* files always installed and these are not compatible with the xcb-libs from the launcher. Delete these libraries in your launcher directory with

rm -v ~/.local/lib/EVE/Launcher/libxcb*

and try again to start evelauncher.sh.

So I tried tho something went wrong:
Flagging the point that I have no such directory as ~/.local/lib/EVE but only ~/evelauncher, executed the command:

~/evelauncher$ rm -v libxcb*

and executing ./evelauncher.sh
Returns this:

~/evelauncher$ ./evelauncher.sh 
QObject::startTimer: Timers can only be used with threads started with QThread
qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load the Qt platform plugin "xcb" in "" even though it was found.
This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

Available platform plugins are: eglfs, linuxfb, minimal, minimalegl, offscreen, vnc, wayland-egl, wayland, wayland-xcomposite-egl, wayland-xcomposite-glx, xcb.

Aborted (core dumped)

Trying to solve the issue I tried 3 linux distributions, I am lost but maybe I found finally a place and someone to address my issue.

Now some infos about my system and hardware to help out in troubleshooting:

I am not a knowledgeable linux user but I can read and I think to be only normally retarded. So far despite all my efforts nothing did work.

Sorry for the long post, I hope to be blessed by your wise advises an being able to log into space soon!

Based on your kernel data i suppose, you use Ubuntu Eoan or some derivat of this version (19.10). The xcb libraries on Ubuntu are splitted in some packages which are not all installed by default.

To find out which are missing go to your evelauncher directory and try following command (after you have deleted the xcb libraries there)

~/evelauncher$ env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd` ldd ./plugins/xcbglintegrations/libqxcb-glx-integration.so | grep -i not

This should show you the missing libraries. In my test are this only


but the error-messages are the same as you have posted before:

qt.qpa.plugin: Could not load...

Search these libraries with apt like so:

~/evelauncher$ apt search libxcb-xinerama

and install the listed package with

~/evelauncher$ sudo apt install <package-name>

HTH :slight_smile:

@Gharim_Turen, I am touching the sky with my shorter finger (lost in translation?).

Launcher is now working!! I can come back in space and have fun with you all but not just that, thanks your excellent explanation I learnt more about Linux and its environment!

Thanks a lot, sincerely

To add, setting


can be useful for seeing what’s going wrong when looking at it. Recently used that to debug the same issue for something else. Ubuntu 20.04 was having it. Same fix with libxcb-xinerama

Also, if you run into black screens on startup (or after character selection , make sure to set download everything in the launcher settings, close the launcher, then reopen it. It’ll take a while to download 9GB or so.

Thanks for the advise about debug parameters for qt bug hunting :slight_smile:

Maybe i should set LauncherShouldDownloadEverything=true in EVE.conf for the first start after the installation from the launcher itself, but the disadvantage is, it will extend the download time for the first start of the game i think.

– fly safe o7
