It would be nice from CCP that she give a clear statement about the linux launcher and when she are not willing to support them, then a statement, that the linux launcher are no longer usable.
Hey all, just to helicopter in and let you all know what’s going on:
a) the linux launcher is, and always has been, an unofficial side project that a few linux-using devs have run during their spare time. It is not supported by CCP, which means it’s not guaranteed to be up to date, and the GM’s can’t help you much if you have issues.
b) I’m taking up the torch from CCP Snorlax, but I will literally be working on this in my spare time, kicking off builds at like 9pm. That means I won’t be working on it every day or even every week, but I’ll put in what I can, partly because I use it as well and partly because I believe linux support is worthwhile.
c) I’m working on an updated build now, but I can’t give any timeline at all. I’m porting the whole shebang forward 5 minor revisions of QT and moving the build chain to base on 16.04 at the same time. If I understand the situation correctly this will fix the ssl symlinking issue, but to be honest I’m re-learning skills I haven’t used in about 4 years so we’ll see.
