since I just installed Eve on a fresh install of the Ubuntu 18.04 nightly build, here’s some notes:
fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 beta nightly build downloaded on Jan 25th
downloaded launcher, untared and chmoded - ran out of the box, updated and restartet.
Login possible, but couldn’t launch game
tried to run .eve/wine/bin/wine and got file not found. Used the file command on the wine executable and found 32bit binary - so missig 32 bit libs.
installed 32 bit libs:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386
- found more missing dependencies from the logserver - libz and libldap.
sudo apt-get install libz1:i386
sudo apt-get install libldap-2.4.2:i386
- complained about freetype fonts missing:
sudo apt-get install wine winetricks
Result: runs nicely under wayland or xorg - the latter seems slightly faster.
