I am running Debian stretch/buster 64bit (Multiarch) on my desktop pc and notebook
EVELauncher Linux (no steam needed) with Custom Wine (Wine-Staging)
Install from jessie-backports, stretch or buster (whatever you are running):
sudo apt-get install libssl1.0.2 (this installs libssl.so.1.0.2 and libcrypto.so.1.0.2)
If nothing else depends on it remove/purge libssl1.0.0
To avoid pitfalls with updating/reinstalling Linux EVE Launcher make 2 symlinks:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so.1.0.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcrypto.so
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so.1.0.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libssl.so
For installing EVE Launcher for Linux see:
Two hidden directories will also be made in you home directory .eve and .EVE.
Steam isn’t needed for EVEOnline unless you have an subscription via Steam.
The warnings you see abt. Steam and/or qtwebengine_locales are just warnings nothing else,
just ignore them. You can solve the qtwebengine_locales warning, in stretch/buster/sid, by installing:
sudo apt-get install libqt5webengine-data
ln- s /usr/share/qt5/translations path/to/evelauncher/translations
Start EVE from the terminal with:
Desktop/notebook with dedicated video card: path/to/evelauncher/evelauncher.sh
Optimus notebook: optirun/primusrun path/to/evelauncher/evelauncher.sh
If you installed Linux EVE Launcher correctly it should run else check permissions.
Don’t start evelauncher.sh when you are in the directory itself, it doesn’t work.
In the EVE Launcher settings check DX9 and if you have wine already installed you can try
check Use custom Wine -> Custom Wine path: (whatever/path/to)wine
From wine-devel/wine-staging 2.4.0 should be able to run DX11 instead of DX9. Try it.
For DX11 you may have to set post-processing to High, turn the brightness in game settings higher and Interior Shader Quality to Low.
With DX11 outside station you might encounter some flickering when looking into a bright sun/star. Haven’t been able to solve or find a workaround for this yet.
Tested the evelauncher with DX11 and I must say kudo’s to the Wine devs
for the progress they made in the last 9 months.
