I finally got fed up with Windows 7 and made the full, dedicated switch, to Ubuntu 11.04! "yay?" This being said, tonight I have been looking at the Linux thread, and googling alot of eve related items and have seamed to come up with concrete answers to anything. (GRRRRR!!!) Here's hoping someone is nice enough to help! :)

1) Is there an up-to-date guide on installing the Eve client onto Linux? Pref one Ubuntu noob friendly?

2) What differences can I realistically expect?

3) Is there anything like EveMon out there for Linux users that has the same functionality?

4) Is there anything like EFT out there for Linux users that has the same Functionality?

5) Is there an Eve-based Ubuntu desktop theme anyone has a link to? (that works for 11.04 obviously)

6) The in-game channel mentioned in the first sticky post in this thread, is it still in use?

Yep, the official wiki is probably the closest to noob-friendly you could expect.
Eve Wiki



2) What differences can I realistically expect?

Some graphical glitches and you will need to patch manually.

3) Is there anything like EveMon out there for Linux users that has the same functionality?

GtK-evemon GtKEvEMon


4) Is there anything like EFT out there for Linux users that has the same Functionality?

PyFA Pyfa

5) Is there an Eve-based Ubuntu desktop theme anyone has a link to? (that works for 11.04 obviously)

Make your own Razz you can edit all themes and pictures.

6) The in-game channel mentioned in the first sticky post in this thread, is it still in use?

Nobody really knows, because it takes years for someone with sticky rights to get lost in the linux forum

1. Start here:
Winehq Incarna

2. depending upon hardware, you will have about a 15-20% drop in frame rate. If gear is up to date, this is not a big deal. On older hardware, more of an issue.

3. GTKEVEMON

4. Pyfa

5. no clue. Arch user here. :-)

6. As a maintainer of the ingame channel, i'll have to update that, as the top sticky has been locked for sometime and is a bit outta date. winehq is the best place to check in for issues, report bugs, etc.

Also we have a wine entry in the evelopedia here: EVELOPEDIA-LINUX
