New launcher... new Linux error?

You guys should just use a real OS then it’s not a problem.

Upstream patch submitted to Wine! https://source.winehq.org/patches/data/209969

Big thanks to the CodeWeavers team for helping us troubleshoot and quickly delivering a fix :slight_smile:

Quick Arch Linux wine-staging build:

GitHub - Caffe1neAdd1ct/arch-wine-staging-pkgbuild: Temp package with patch for arch linux wine staging

I’ll grab copies of vanilla wine and proton tonight and get some PKGBUILDs done, might also upload to github the finished package files in case people don’t want to hammer their machines with building wine from source :confused:

Massive thanks to @Renard_DuGaulle and the peeps over at WineHQ :slight_smile:

PS if you run EVE in Wine, send @Renard_DuGaulle some ISK to replace all the time spent fixing, testing and collaborating on this, i’m sure the ISK will be used wisely :laughing:

Very nice, works again! Thanks @Renard_DuGaulle for your great work!

Here is how to apply the patch on Gentoo:

$ mkdir -p /etc/portage/patches/app-emulation/wine-staging-6.12
$ curl https://source.winehq.org/patches/data/209969 > /etc/portage/patches/app-emulation/wine-staging-6.12/eve-launcher.patch
$ emerge =app-emulation/wine-staging-6.12

Not necessary, but I appreciate the thought! Big thanks to @Lycan_King_Tawate for diving in to help debug and bounce ideas back and forth as well!

Built package for Arch Linux wine-staging 6.13-1 with the patch included available if you don’t want to wait for the patch to make it through or heat your PC up in this weather :sweat_smile:

Awesome guys!

I can confirm that the patch worked for me. I am able to update the windows Launcher and then start my accounts … no problem. It is on custom build of stable wine 6.0 on Fedora.

You should return to whatever the hell you came from, nobody asked your opinion.

Thanks for your work and thanks to anyone else that helped. :slight_smile:

Can you, or someone else, please, provide a simple guide for installing it on Ubuntu based Linux (I use Kubuntu)?

I am fairly new to Linux, (never looking back to Windows), can follow instructions for konsole input, but not familiar with standard procedure when it comes to editing wine stuff.

Is using steam an option? That might be an easier route until the next stable wine release. Unfortunately they just tagged wine 6.13 a day or two ago so it may be a bit before the patch makes it into a stable release.

Not sure if I can use Steam. I use Lutris.

Thanks for info. I plan to wait for the stable release. My work situation doesn’t allow me to play much anyway.

Using Steam is dead easy on linux.
You just go to the steam page, and click install on the website.
That will give you a download that you should be able to install on most distros.

Just give it a try, it might work right out of the box.

Sure, will give it a try, thanks.
