View Full Version : Eve online

Hi, I just installed Ubuntu, first time user. So make it simple. :D

I installed 'Eve online' and since then I'm able to open the game. But the thing is when I open it I get this:

So could any of you guys post a step by step guide on how to run it? My friend told me something about -opengl but I didn't quite understood him. Pretty please.

Did they bring back the Linux client? If not, it might be worth reporting your thread and asking for it to be moved to the Wine forum.

Nah, I installed it through wine with windows client. I followed this (http://goo.gl/0Y388) guide on their website.
Made it through installation, but now I can't play. I can't see Eula, so I can't even start the game.

They did mention this (http://goo.gl/YmTov). But I don't see any instructions?

I do not know the answer, but your best bet might be the Eve Online Forums. They still have community support for Linux there :)

I really would post this thing there, but the thing is if you do not have a character created you can't post on the forums. Since I can't pass that eula screen which I can't see because of my problem I'm pretty much stuck here. I've been reading through posts on other forums too, for an explanation/fix but it's been hours now and I can't find anything. So I would really appreciate if someone who is playing this game just post how is he/her running this game. Just usuals, like do you run it through shortcut on your desktop or you actually run it from terminal and if so how?

Thank you for your posts so far.
