-Tested using fresh install of Ubuntu 9.10.
-Use guide at your own risk, I am not responsible if you break something

1. Get and install wine. Go to "Applications">"Ubuntu Software Center", then in the search bar type in "Wine", click on "Wine Microsoft Windows Compatibility Layer (Beta Release)" then click the arrow pointing right to the right side of it. Scroll down and hit install, and type in your password(if it asks for one)"

You must be using version 1.1.29 at least which is the beta release

2. You have to download the client. They say you should download it from here http://www.eveonline.com/download/ and get the windows version.

(I kept having an issue from that link, it would give a verification error after it downloaded so I used. http://games.softpedia.com/progDownload/EVE-Online-Full-Client-Download-10415.html Its the full client so it may take an hour or two to download)

3. Right click on what you downloaded and left click on "Open with Wine Windows Program Loader" (the official and what I used work the same from here on out)

4. Standard install wizard pops up, just hit next and accept all the way through it, default location is fine.

5. Go to Applications>Wine>Programs>EVE>Play EVE there you go you can now play eve on your linux box.
(if this step only gets you a splash screen for a few seconds then nothing continue reading for the fix)

6. Go to System>Administration>Other Software click on "Add", type in "ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa" then click "Add Source"

7. Go to System>Administration>Update Manager click "Check" then "Install Updates"

(this may take some time depending on when the last time you updated was)

8. Now download this:

Intel 32bit

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/%7Ekernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.32-rc6/linux-headers-2.6.32-020632rc6_2.6.32-020632rc6_all.deb

then

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.32-rc6/linux-headers-2.6.32-020632rc6-generic_2.6.32-020632rc6_i386.deb

then

http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/v2.6.32-rc6/linux-image-2.6.32-020632rc6-generic_2.6.32-020632rc6_i386.deb



9. Go to where you downloaded them to and double click on them(one at a time) for both its will open a package installer and in the upper right corner click "install package"

Install in the order you downloaded them in

10. Go to Applications>Accessories>Terminal type in Terminal window "sudo update-grub"
type in password when asked

11.Shut Down

11.When you turn your computer back on start hitting Escape on your keyboard till grub pops up.

13. Select from the list "Ubuntu, Linux 2.6.32-020632rc6-generic" (chances are good its the top option)

14. Log in go to Applications>Wine>Programs>Eve>Play Eve, if it says "Could not launch 'Play EVE" then go to Applications>Wine>Browse C:\ Drive>Program Files>CCP>EVE find eve.exe, right click and hit "Open with wine Windows Program Loader" it should load up in a few seconds

Have fun

Feedback is welcome, and if you can test this on other distros let me know so I know what it works with.

6. Go to System>Administration>Other Software click on "Add", type in "ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa" then click "Add Source"




I am having a problem with this step, when i go to system>administration i do not have an option called other software Neutral

Edit: found it, i had to go System>administration>Software sources>other software

edit: did all the steps, only difference is i have wine version 1.1.33 and on start up use rc8-generic as rc6 is not available, eve gets past the splash screen and goes black then closes it self with no message and puts my resolution to 700x400...

If you take this route and your a Nvidia user you'll probably get some complaining when you recompile the Nvidia kernel module that the version of GCC on your system is not the version used to compile the kernel. Thus far i haven't had any problems tho. Its also possible rc6 was compiled with the version of gcc included in 9.10.

I'm using:

Ubuntu 9.10, install was fresh and is only a few weeks old
kernel 2.6.32_amd64 not the rc6 mentioned in this post, the final release, from the same mentioned ubuntu kernel PPA
Nvidia 195.22 drivers

with no issues.

2.6.32 changed some default settings for ext4, if you use ext4 you should check out this:

http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=linux_perf_regressions&num=2

personally i have a UPS and mount with nobarrier (just add "nobarrier" to the options section of fstab) this removed any change in disk performance for me with 2 x 64GB OCZ Agility SSD's in mdadm RAID0.

Try adding the Nvidia driver ppa: ppa:nvidia-vdpau/ppa update the driver and see if the problem persists.

BTW: I suggest everyone to use the fstab options: noatime,commit=60 instead of default or relatime. This improves performance a lot with all filesystems, it will stop writes (of access time) on each read and the other means to use a 60 second interval for syncs (default is 5), meaning one sync per minute instead of 12 for less writing and more powersaving.

what would you recommend if anything for ati users? i tried downloading the catalsyst control center for linux but it won't let me install it for some reason. It is a .run file but when i try and open it with wine (not even sure if this is needed) it says no windows program configured to open this program, and when i try and open with the program linux suggests (gedit) it says i can't understand the characters or something similar Confused

to launch the .run file (there is certainly a GUI way, but GUI's are for nubs):

1) open a terminal window
2) go to where it is downloaded (either 'cd Desktop' or 'cd Downloads'
3) verify your .run file is there with the ls command
4) enable execute permissions using 'chmod +x ati-driver-installer-9-11-x86.x86_64.run' replacing my .run file name with yours
5) launch the .run file using root permissions 'sudo ./ati-driver-installer-9-11-x86.x86_64.run'

Not sure if that will actually fix your eve problem, but that's how you launch the installer you were trying.

Do I really have to update the kernel? And if so, can I do it via apt using a repo?

I would really rather not update from what karmic comes with.

Fairly sure you only have to update the kernel if you don't want to have to edit prefs.ini every time you start EVE

env WINEPREFIX="/home/magnus/.wine" padsp wine explorer /desktop=Passive,1680x1050 "C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE-passive\eve.exe"

I have this commandline in a launcher in the panel, works great.

Updated the kernel according to the OP, but i'm having the same issue as Becko Bunt, cant see the text to scroll down, even though I have installed the core fonts.

I'm currently using wine 1.1.34.

2 days of messing about and it finally works. Followed ZeeWes's post exactly and I'm good to go.

Zee... Thank you m8. These simple instructions made the kernel update a walk in the park.

as to the nvidia installer gcc problem, there's a quick fix, however the difference in the two compilers aren't exactly extra-ordinary.

sudo apt-get install gcc-(whatever nvidia installer is asking for)

sudo CC=/usr/bin/gcc-(whatever version you just downloaded) sh NVIDIA*

thats long and confusing, lets type it again

sudo CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.2 sh NVIDIA*

comprende?

Nice guide...

Sadly doesn't work for me :(. Getting pipe_wait in Processes.

I followed your guide to the letter but step 14 just doesn't run the game.

Then i also tried to reinstall EVE completely which didn't help at all.

Any ideas welcome...

Try running Repair.exe several times, then, start EvE again.

Ran repair.exe few times (4 times i think, always with all files are OK result) but no effect whatsoever on running eve.exe.

ok, this is the script I use to start eve, It might do the trick (adapt it with your own paths + res and start it with: sh ./eve.sh)

#!/bin/bash
killall ExeFile.exe
killall eve.exe
rm /home/eve/.wine/drive_c/users/eve/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/z_home_eve_tranquility/settings/core_public__.dat
rm -r /home/eve/.wine/drive_c/users/eve/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/z_home_eve_tranquility/cache
cp /home/eve/.wine/drive_c/users/eve/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/z_home_eve_tranquility/settings/prefs_old.ini /home/eve/.wine/drive_c/users/eve/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/z_home_eve_tranquility/settings/prefs.ini

sleep 1
wine explorer /desktop=EVE1,1920x1030 /home/eve/eve.exe >/dev/null 2>&1

And you followed this guide to resolve splash screen issue? I followed it step by step, everything worked flawlessly but running eve is still problem. Really no idea what should i do more.
