I wanted to give gaming on linux a try but so far it’s been a mess. I’m sure it’s me, what am I doing wrong? I’m on the latest fedora, fresh install. I tried installed through steam, through lutris, and through the exe with wine.
So far this is far as I can get.
Tried following uniwiki’s advice but the binaries apparently don’t exist anymore? Any help is greatly appreciated! I really want to switch to linux but playing eve is the last thing stopping me.
try run with debug (option in launcher)
i downloaded the windows installer and used bottles. didnt have to do anything else
There are several different ways to install/play on Linux. I have had a crash course recently, because I keep breaking Linux. Hope this is my last install.
I have made the move back to Linux, Kubuntu being my flavor. Right now my path is this;
- Installed fresh install of Kubuntu.
- Under “System”, open ‘Muon Package Manager’’ installed ‘Lutris’.
- Look in Lutris for ‘Eve Online’.
That should install almost anything thats needed for loading Eve.
Good luck! It’s worth not having Windows!
Similar to the comment above: you can also install EVE via Steam, and Steam can be installed easily as a flatpak.
Install flatpak from your distro’s package repo, install the Steam flatpak and use Steam to install EVE. There will be a default “Steam:” account listed in the launcher, just pretend it doesn’t exist and log in normally.
It took me all of about 5 minutes to be up and running this way and I didn’t have to dick with Wine prefixes or dependencies in the slightest.
