Eve launcher on Ubuntu 19.04

Just updated to Ubuntu 19.04 and now i get this error when attempting to run the launcher

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

not heavily proficient on ubuntu, please help.

I had the same issue. The problem is with the bundled libxcb libraries. I removed the files from the evelauncher folder and it the launcher started but then replaced the files. I’ll let you know once I find a work around.

OK, so deleting the libxcb files prior to launching evelauncher.sh seems to work so far. Try this:
Before deleting any files, make sure libx11-xcb1 is installed at the OS level:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install libx11-xcb1

Open up a terminal and move into the evelauncher folder, in my case it was under my home directory:
cd /home/deadlimit/evelauncher/

Make sure QtWebEngineProcess has sufficient access permissions (mine didn’t):
sudo chmod 755 QtWebEngineProcess

Now it’s time to delete the packaged libxcb files:
rm -f libxcb*

Run the launcher:
sh evelauncher.sh

The launcher should now be displayed and will install some update, this will also re-install the libxcb files we deleted above, that’s fine. Wait for the update to finish and then delete the libxcb* files again and re-run sh evelauncher.sh:
rm -f libxcb*; sh evelauncher.sh

You should now see it pull down a different set of updates, these are the game files. You will also see the wine configuration window, this is good let it finish.

You should now have a fully functional launcher and be able to sign into the game. I’ve not seen the libxcb files be restored since the first update so you should be good to run the launcher without any messing about or deletion of files.


Sounds more like you forgot to install the essentials prior to starting the launcher:

apt install mesa-utils mesa-utils-extra mesa-va-drivers mesa-vdpau-drivers mesa-vulkan-drivers va-driver-all vdpau-driver-all vdpau-va-driver i965-va-driver-shaders ffmpeg vainfo vdpauinfo clinfo

Just hit enter and say yes to all. And dont forget mono and wineHQ after a fresh install.

Thank you all for the prompt responses. Issue was resolved. Thank you!!
