[HowTo] EVE Online on Zorin OS

This guide will show yo how to install EVE Online on Zorin OS (tested on Z16 beta).

Download and Installing

Open the terminal and type;

wget https://binaries.eveonline.com/evelauncher-1548102.tar.gz
tar -xvf evelauncher-1548102.tar.gz
cd evelauncher
chmod u+x evelauncher.sh

Setting up DX11

Don't start the game just yet. First we need to ensure the EVE Online uses DX11. Open another terminal;

sudo apt install winetricks
env WINEPREFIX=~/.eve/wineenv winetricks dxvk

Now right click the little e in system tray. Go to settings and untick DX9.


Making a launcher to easy access EVE Online.

sudo ln -s ~/evelauncher/evelauncher.sh /usr/bin/evelauncher
sudo chmod u+x /usr/bin/evelauncher
wget https://wiki.eveuniversity.org/images/a/af/Evelauncher.png
sudo mv Evelauncher.png /usr/share/pixmaps/
sudo nano /usr/share/applications/eve.desktop

Add the following;

[Desktop Entry]
Name=EVE Online
Comment=EVE Online by CCP Games
Exec=sh -c "cd ~/evelauncher && ./evelauncher.sh"

Save: [ctrl]+[o]
Exit: [ctrl]+[x]

Then you're ready to go! Enjoy!

No problem :slight_smile:

Nope. I have no experience with Lutris, mainly because I'm tend to keep games natively. This guide is an exception because someone needs help in another thread.
