Here's the error message I get:

The file '/home/jeff/Downloads/EVE_Premium_Setup_273475.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.

Any ideas???

BTW, I'm running Ubuntu 10.04

Have you tried to right click on the file and set it as executable? Normally you shouldn't need to but I've seen that happen before.

Via nautilus:

right click the file, choose 'properties', then select the 'permissions' tab.

At the bottom of that you should see a "Exectute" check box "allow executing as program". Check that and close the dialog.

Try again.

Confirming this needs to be done. I have just done a clean install with Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit. I remember that this has to be done, OP, but I just received another error. I installed it fine a few days ago, but you need to download the 3 files given for the offline install, and install it that way.

A better way to install (ie its all done for you, fonts and everything) is to use winetricks from current wine build (1.3.25 or better).

1. Install/update wine.
2. Run wine tricks and install game option.
3. Choose EVE tyrannis and wait for d/l. It will auto install the old version and add fonts etc that are needed.
4. Set sound in this bottle as normal and start eve to patch up :)

This method is more time downloading than manual but it works first time in ubuntu 11.04 without a single hitch (except for the current framerate issues since incarna).
