This is with wine 0.9.49, unbuntu 7.1:

Goto /home/username/.cedega/EVE Online/c_drive/windows/EveFonts
Copy both fonts.

Paste them in: /home/username/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts

Don't worry about trying to run RedistD3DXOnly.exe, it won't work (and it's not needed).

And for the prick who wouldn't post this, this is for you!

Not needed to do any font work on wine. Can you list the fonts you needed to copy, as I'd wager it's corefonts and for those sans cegeda install their is a sourceforge area with them.

It's arial and arialUT or something like that (am on another machine so can't check). If you don't have those, it won't even load the login screen.

Yep, Microsoft Core Fonts as it's called. Tahomma, Arial and so on.

Rather than pishing around with installing cegeda then installing wine:

http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=34153&release_id=105355

Run the exe's via the usual "wine <exename>.exe" and it'll install them for you.

Well the fonts did it for me. I get a login screen now.

Thank you,
