What works

Game functionality looks pretty good.

If you encounter a blackscreen at first startup, kill the game process (via kill or kill -9) and restart it.

(Mod addon: you can also use wineserver -k)

What does not

Occasionally blackscreen or resolution error in window mode or fixed window mode. I suggest using fullscreen mode.

What was not tested

"The new shield and armor effects. " Because I don't know what these "new effects" expected to be.

Additional Comments

(I'm using Nvidia GTX1060, Driver Version: 378.13)

Download EVE Launcher for Linux from
(check more info about the linux laucher at

Extract and run the "". It would set the LD_PREFIX and other environments for you. 
If you prefer your locally wine installation, click the menu button at top-right conor, click "Settings..." and check "Using custom Wine".

FYI, the default WINEPREFIX for EVE is at "$HOME/.eve/wineenv".

Note: DX11 support seems broken. If you uncheck "Run clients with DX9", the game process would crash on start and complain "No valid display adapter found." in Loglite.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO - Eve Online install on Linux

You will need to disable Direct3D v11 support
Run winecfg and select -> Libraries -> [New override for library: ] d3d11 -> Add -> Edit... -> Disable

You will need to install a number of required libraries with winetricks.

  •  "winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010" if this does not work try:
    • wget
    • chmod +x winetricks
    •  "./winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010"
  • wine msiexec /i EVE_Online_Installer_*.msi

Virtual Desktops

Most testers report that Eve runs best in full screen mode in a virtual desktop, however as of wine 1.5 many users report that windowed mode is stable.  If you are using wine 1.4 you can set the virtual desktop mode via winecfg or create a script to run Eve.  Most people put the script in ~/bin/eve.bash or /usr/local/bin/eve.bash.  Note that 1920x1080 should be your desired resolution.



$WINE explorer /desktop=eveA,1920x1080 "c:\program files\ccp\eve\eve.exe"

Then run;

  • winecfg
  • Make changes to winecfg according to other HOWTO to get game running
  • chmod +x /~/bin/eve.bash
  • eve.bash to play

If you are running wine 1.5 you may find it simpler to use  windowed mode.  If you wish to run multiple clients with wine 1.4 it's recommend that you create additional script for each instance, and change "desktop=eveA" to "desktop=eveB"...  You will also need to change the settings eve launcher settings so that it does not relaunch itself.

Creating a new wine prefix

If you need/want to use wine different instances of "windows" for Eve.  (Important if you have a lot of games with various installed dlls, and overrides that conflict.)  Creating a new prefix is simple create the directory and add the WINEPREFIX to all wine and winetricks commands.

  • mkdir ~/wine_games
  • add "WINEPREFIX=~/wine_games/wine-eve" to all wine and winetricks commands.

Some users prefer to have multiple wineprefixes for each eve client, but this is not required.

Tips and Tweaks
1) Sound historically has been problematic for many posters in the past..  If you are crashing be sure to turn it off to see if it's causing issues.

2) If you are crashing during play you may find that reducing your graphic settings will help.  This is vital if you have an older card, low amounts of memory, and/or run a lot of clients.

3) DirectX11 support in Wine is potentially a long way off, so make sure your client is using DirectX9.

Note's for AMD Catalyst users
1] Catalyst is actively setting constrains on Wine [BUG =]
Is under investigation by the AMD, workaround below;

cp /usr/bin/wine /usr/bin/Emulator or something else, though please note that this under investigation and may introduce bugs that AMD may have tried to workaround with that ugly fix.

2] Seems that explosions from missiles and other effects have some corruption on the ships.
Workaround, enable Anti-Aliasing >= Low in options.

3] Rendering and GLSL errors when shaders on High
Catalyst 12.6 and older will have issues on High shaders. Later versions should have this fixed when released. [NOT FIXED in 12.8]

4] Freezes
Catalyst may freak Xorg out sometimes during login screen. SSH into the computer and killing the Wineprefix that the game was running may return the computer to usable state without the need of hard reboot. There is also a big chance that the game rendering will crash on first launch. UI works but you cant open menu's or drag ships or undock. Restart client if this happens.

Other workaround would be to have a script executed to kill the Wineprefix with a delay if not terminated.

5] Catalyst 12.9 beta2
This driver seem to have better and more stable performance, no more degrading over time nor crashing as much as it did in the ones before. However it got some drawbacks as in not rendering previews of ships, drones and gates and performance dies when running the game with HDR enabled.

HOWTO - Eve Online on FreeBSD 10.x 64bit

All following steps you may use 'root' user, later of installation you can run wine as normal user

1) Get a 32 bit copy from :

2) Mount your 32 bit DVD of FreeBSD and install the base system, related 32 bits libraries and source code, copy Xorg and Linux emulation (necessary to compile nVIDIA driver) packages and download NVIDIA driver 32bits:

        # mkdir /compat/i386
        # cd /compat/i386
        # mount -t cd9660 /dev/cd0 /mnt/cdrom
        # cd /mnt/cdrom/usr/freebsd-dist
        # sh
        # export DESTDIR=/compat/i386
        # for file in base.txz src.txz; do (cat $file | tar --unlink -xpJf - -C ${DESTDIR:-/}); done
        # cp -v /mnt/cdrom/packages/freebsd:10:x86:32/All/linux_base-f10-10_7.txz /compat/i386


        URL variable could be change on your system, the idea here, is put the correct path to your copy of FreeBSD 32bits

3)  Mount dev directory in the i386 enviroment:

        # mount -t devfs devfs /compat/i386/dev

4) Copy your /etc/resolv.conf to /compat/i386/etc

        # cp -v /etc/resolv.conf /compat/i386/etc/

5) Copy your ports from Host's system inside 32 bit chroot's enviroment :

        # cp -vr /usr/ports /compat/i386/usr/

6) Now do a chroot on /compat/i386 (as root) and change to "sh" shell:

        # chroot /compat/i386
        # sh

7) Edit /etc/rc.d/ldconfig and add /usr/local/lib to system library:

        Before :

        if [ -x "${ldconfig_command}" ]; then
            _LDC="/lib /usr/lib "
            for i in ${ldconfig_local_dirs}; do
                    if [ -d "${i}" ]; then
                            _files=`find ${i} -type f`
                            if [ -n "${_files}" ]; then
                                    ldconfig_paths="${ldconfig_paths} `cat ${_files} | sort -u`"

         if [ -x "${ldconfig_command}" ]; then
            _LDC="/lib /usr/lib /usr/local/lib"
            for i in ${ldconfig_local_dirs}; do
                    if [ -d "${i}" ]; then
                            _files=`find ${i} -type f`
                            if [ -n "${_files}" ]; then
                                    ldconfig_paths="${ldconfig_paths} `cat ${_files} | sort -u`"

    This is necessary because some libraries installation path is located in /usr/local/lib and later Wine' configure don't detect them

8) Inside of chroot (/compat/i386) do the following:

        # /etc/rc.d/ldconfig start
        # export MACHINE=i386 && export UNAME_p=i386 && export UNAME_m=i386
        # pkg add /linux_base-f10-10_7.txz && rm -v /linux_base-f10-10_7.txz
        # pkg install gsm openal mpg123 speex xorg wget flex help2man jpeg lcms bison libGLU libXi  libXrandr libXcursor
        # cd /usr/ports/graphics/libosmesa && make install clean
        # mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/man/man1 && mkdir -p /usr/X11R6/lib/modules/drivers

9)  Now we will install the NVIDIA driver 32 bits version inside Chroot current version is 331.49, your 64bits OS and the chroot enviroment should be the same driver version, this is very important, if you install different version, Wine won't run  :

        # cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver && make install clean

10) Now is time to build Wine :

        # cd /usr/ports/emulators/wine-devel && make install clean

11) Now we will exit from chroot :

        # exit

12) To run apps with wine we need first complete fonts apps dependency, normaly Arial fonts. to do this will install in outside chroot, cabextract (as root):

        # cd /usr/ports/archivers/cabextract && make install clean
        # download Arial family letters from [to_a_folder]
        # cd [to_a_folder]
        # cabextract *

13) Move the fonts to right place :

        # mv -v Ari*  /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/

14)  Open a terminal and run 'sh' and put some aliases:

        # sh

        # alias winecfg="LD_32_LIBRARY_PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/lib:/compat/i386/usr/X11R6/lib PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/bin:$PATH /compat/i386/usr/local/bin/winecfg"

        # alias wine="LD_32_LIBRARY_PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/lib:/compat/i386/usr/X11R6/lib PATH=/compat/i386/usr/local/bin:$PATH /compat/i386/usr/local/bin/wine"

15) Run winecfg and configure the rest as always or with your preferences.

16) Create the symlink to the new fonts  installed in step 13 in  ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts :

    #  ln -s /usr/local/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/Ari* /home/$USER/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/

17) Run your win32 application as always.

17.1 To install EVE run:

wine msiexec /I (filename).msi

You now also need: 'winetricks vcrun2013'
Current state?
by N. Andrew Walsh on Monday April 25th 2016, 15:18
Can a capsuleer (heh) post on the current state of the client? Do the shield/armor visuals still not work? Do you still need to do that winetricks stuff, or disable DX3D11? The notifications I see at the top are, like, two years old, so I'm wondering how valid they still are. Any issues with wine 1.9.x?

EVE, Linux (Wine) and Captains Quarters

THEY FIXED IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

thats what's posted in the eve update list..

EVE, Linux (Wine) and Captains Quarters
If you are playing EVE under Linux via Wine, then you can now enter the Captains Quarters thanks to CCP Snorlax' brilliant skills (he found a bug in a 3rd party SDK and did a work around). If you want to use Wine, please use the Wine 32 bit version.

EVEOnline crashes at launcher
by Sorin Istrate on Thursday January 14th 2016, 15:02

After I installed EVEOnline (current version, just downloade) and run EVEOnline launcher, it crashes. Message is "The program QTEngineProcess.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close.We are sorry for the inconvenience".

I use Linux Mint 17.3 Rosa 64-bit and I have wine 1.9.1 from your site. Winecfg is set to Windows 10, d3d11.dll is disabled.

I activated msvcr120.dll in libraries and works like a charm. Also, works with d3d11.dll activated with setting Native Windows, it doesn't work with Native then builtin.

Note about dx9 and dx11
by Alexey Min on Sunday October 18th 2015, 2:10
EVE Online supports dx9 or dx11 backends. On wine (1.7.52) dx9 is working, dx11 is not, so to launch exefile first to configure graphics settings launch it this way:

wine bin/exefile.exe /triPlatform=dx9

there you can set window mode/fullscreen mode, lower graphics settings, and then configure game to use DX9 in launcher settings, and then you can just use launcher to start game.
Installer woes
by Michael on Friday August 28th 2015, 22:11
So the current "how to install" assumes you're installing an EXE, but CCP now offers the installer as an MSI.

wine msiexec /I (filename).msi appears to be the solution.
graphic issues
by andrew on Saturday July 25th 2015, 15:20
apparently there has been an update somewhere between ubuntu, i am using the 14.04 lts, and wine, i believe i am using 1:1.7.44 via synaptic package manager. eve was running fine minus the ingame browser two days ago, but now the video is not right. sometimes it is working for a minute but then i either lose the station background when in hanger and the fps is lagging badly while in space or i lose the ui windows and all right click ablities. the launcher is similarly malfunctioning. i do have the proprietary and tested drivers in use for my nvidia card and i also have done a full wipe and reinstall with no change at present.
Eve Aegis Installer (MSI)

Patch 877986 - ExeFile.exe now has stable processor affinity
by evanh on Tuesday April 28th 2015, 7:03
Eve's natural processor affinity has just changed behaviour as of patch 877986, today.

Unless I'm mistaken, Eve's no longer exhibiting what was it's familiar incessant thrashing between cores. I'm not yet expecting anything dramatic in terms of performance/stuttering improvements but it could be a sign that better is to come.
In game browser

Window mouse interaction
by Justin on Thursday November 27th 2014, 19:50
I've just installed EVE through wine and I'm having an issue interacting with the windows. Basically it requires two consecutive clicks in the same place before the window registers the click. For example if I have two windows overlapping in the center with the left window in front and click on the visible part of the window on the right the window on the right comes to the front. But then if I click somewhere where the two windows overlap it will bring the left window forward again as if it was the one in the front.

1. Open two windows side by side overlapping in the center
2. Ensure the left window is on top
3. Click exposed portion of right window
4. Click overlapping portion of windows
5. Right window responds to click
5. Left window regains focus and responds to click

This also effects clicking on buttons as you need to click them twice before they will respond. Same thing with dragging stuff you need to click, release, click and then drag.

If anyone can help me with this issue I'd greatly appreciate it.
Eve crashing at entering asteroid belts
by Alexander L. on Thursday September 18th 2014, 2:28
I run into the following to me unexplainable problem:

Eve Online was already installed from playing under linux for a long time, I could start it using Wine under Mint 17 without any problem, and as long as I don't enter captains quarter I can enter the game, undock, fly around, pass jita and gates with lots of other players without any problem.

But as soon as I enter an asteroid belt the game crashes and leaves me on the destkop.

It's definitely a graphical thing, as I don't crash if I open the map while in-warp, then I can sit in the asteroid belt and warp out again. If I don't open the map, it will crash, sometimes as soon as I enter the warp into the belt, sometimes while coming out of warp, sometimes 5 seconds after coming out of warp. Asteroids aren't rendered, I don't see them.

I used the depicted workaround in winetricks, disabled dx11 etc.

I upgraded the default wine 1.6 in mint17 to 1.7.26, no difference. I even lowered graphical settings, though on my current machine (8 gb system ram, ATI 7970 card with 3 GB ram) it shouldn't be necessary.

I would be very grateful for any ideas on where the problem could be located and how to fix it, as I didn't plan on going back to windows.
Black Screen after Login and Character chose
by Experitor on Monday September 8th 2014, 11:39
Today i had a suspicious error.
After log in and choseing my character EVE just started with black screen, audio running and the messageboxes and the menu wehre aviable.
I made no system changes since the last login, forums talking about an DNS problem.
Deffinetly the only thing i changed was the internet access, same provider but other location and IP.
When i changed internet access back EVE started without any problems.

Has anybody made the same expirience?
Is there a soloutin for this login error thing?

Lenovo ThinkPad T410, i5@2.4Ghz, 4GB RAM, Intel Mesa chip running with Linux Mint "qiana" via wine 1.7.25

Eve doesn't quit
by Linubie on Saturday April 19th 2014, 10:01

I am using latest wine 1.7.17 and starting eve like "wine /path/to/eve/bin/exefile.exe".

If I try to quit the game it doesn't quit and freezes, I need to kill all processes related to eve manually to quit the game.

Does anyone face this problem too?

Wine's virtual desktop upsetting Firefox on Linux
by evanh on Sunday February 16th 2014, 0:31
I'm getting huge CPU burn coming from Firefox whenever the wine desktop gains focus. This only happens if I've got a Wine virtual desktop running and it only affects Firefox, and possibly Thunderbird, no other Linux apps appear to be affected. Each cycle makes it take even longer. Firefox is locked solid for the duration. Eventually it recovers; after which Firefox is consuming even more RAM. Wine, otherwise, does not do this. Ie: If I run Eve without the /desktop Wine option there is no issue.

I'm guessing it's a Firefox bug. Of note is the memory footprint, Firefox appears to be leaking badly:

Process 2049 - firefox


The process firefox (with pid 2049) is using approximately 2.0 GB of memory.
It is using 2.0 GB privately, and a further 9.0 MB that is, or could be, shared with other programs.
Dividing up the shared memory between all the processes sharing that memory we get a reduced shared memory usage of 1478.0 KB. Adding that to the private usage, we get the above mentioned total memory footprint of 2.0 GB.

Library Usage

The memory usage of a process is found by adding up the memory usage of each of its libraries, plus the process's own heap, stack and any other mappings, plus the stack of its 31 threads.

Error on Launch: attach_process_dlls
by Louis Pace on Saturday February 15th 2014, 0:17
The launcher itself seems to run correctly, except that it will not launch the game. I click Play, the button changes to "Launching...", but then a few seconds later it reverts to a Play button and the game never starts.

I have tried the configuration changes listed in this article, but when I run ExeFile.exe, I receive the following error, no matter what I try.

attach_process_dlls "blue.dll" failed to initialize

I am very new to linux and wine, so I'll ask your forgiveness if I've overlooked something obvious. I did try Google, but I have had little luck. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Wine 1.7.12.

Thank you for any help that you can provide.

Wine improved!
by evanh on Friday February 14th 2014, 20:31
I just noticed a recent change in Wine - it now supports restoring an app window on the host desktop. This likely changed with latest release as this niggle had annoyed me incessantly since day one.

Every time I minimised Eve it was a pain to get the window back again. Until now I had to flip between desktops to recover a previously minimised Wine app.
Eve's memory usage
by evanh on Monday February 10th 2014, 6:45
I just noticed someone on the EveO Linux forum point out how Eve appears to have a memory leak. Then someone else fired back that Eve has always consumed 2 GB and has another 2 GB leeway ... which, I'll point out now, Windoze can't actual do.

I decided to do a quick check myself and found, initially at least, that once you're in space the client is using well short of 1 GB, around 650-700 MB with maybe another 100 MB utilised by Wine. So that pretty much agrees with the original post.

Eve presumably does do some caching but I believe I've also observed leakiness in the past myself. It shows up in the speed with which Eve consumes all the RAM. The behaviour had come and gone over the years so it's prolly back at the moment.
Ships, stations and star backgrouns not showing correctly.
by David Ward on Wednesday September 11th 2013, 1:26
Hey guys,

To clarify the problem: ships weren't showing correctly while docked in a station, flying through space or previewing their models from the "Show Info" screen. If you rotate the view so that a large light-source is behind the vessel, you'll see a weird kind of transparent view of the ship without textures, kind of like when it's just coming out of a jump-gate.

There's no pretty background for the star-systems either. Oh, also, scanning graphics don't show.

The problem turns out to be the lack of S3TC texture compression in Mesa and this problem is likely to appear only on select distributions that do not ship with ""

To check whether this is your problem, run eve with MESA_DEBUG set to 1. Alternatively, run wine via strace and grep for libtxc_dxtn. :)

The solution is to rebuild Mesa with USE_EXTERNAL_DXTN_LIB set to 1 and have libtxc_dxtn installed. Check Google, you'll find the sources easily.

If you're running 64bit, ensure that you build the 32bit version of the library with the appropriate compiler and linker flags.

PS: You may have to write a .drirc file that force-enables s3tc compression in your X driver.

Good luck and happy hunting! :)
Staticy sound
by Josh Raymond on Saturday September 7th 2013, 18:23
Game (other than captain's quarters) works beautifully for me. With one small exception.
Whenever theres a massive sound effect (such as warping, or the stargate sounds) I get this periodic like static sound. Almost like the sound driver is breaking every 3-5 seconds. It lasts for no longer then half a second each time, and isn't a game breaking malfunction, but does get rather annoying after a few hours of play.

Has anyone else experienced this and know how to fix it?
Fixing the new launcher
by Timo R. on Sunday May 26th 2013, 17:25
I just found a post on the official eve forums which fixes the new launcher for me:

For everyone who's too lazy to click:

1. install vcrun2010 using winetricks: "winetricks vcrun2010", you need to manually download msxml3 here
2. go to winecfg -> libraries and set from "msvcr100 (native, builtin)" to "msvcr100(builtin, native)"
3. Profit!

No idea if installing msxml3 via winetricks works, too. Installing that msi worked for me.
Launcher workaround?
by Sam Silbory on Tuesday May 21st 2013, 16:21
If the launcher is not working try running ExeFile.exe in {your eve dir}/bin. ( generally C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\bin )

If the above doesn't work try the repair tool.

( generally C:\Program Files\CCP\EVE\repair.exe)

PS- Also note that the launcher appears to be borked for Windows too.
Odyssey Expansion
by Mikael on Saturday May 11th 2013, 12:55

Many of you might know that 04.06. comes the new Odyssey expansion. And with new EVE client comes new EVE launcher. And we wine users were asked by devs to test the new launcher.

The thing is, that the new launcher does not work very well, or sometimes at all. So if I may ask you, can you please test the new launcher and if possible throw your experience here or better to this threat? (Necessary to read the first post before testing)

My testing ended up like this (with dev resposne what she things about those errors)

Thanks for your time.
How to get Eve Online working with 1.5.28 and Ubuntu 13.04
by Mark on Friday April 26th 2013, 3:35
Using Radeon's 13.4 proprietary driver, wine 1.5 newest release and ubuntu 13.04. I have managed to get eve working.

The trick is to run msvcr90, disable d3d11, but DO NOT run in a virtual desktop, make sure you have all microsoft corefonts, winetricks, etc. There are walkthroughts aplenty for those. Basically follow any work around for ubuntu 12.10 but again, no virtual desktop, and again the aformentioned library overrides.

I'm not sure why exactly, but the newest release of wine and ubuntu doesn't seem to like the virtual desktop environment.

Hope this works for you. Thanks WineHQ.
EVE - Online Game Ratings.
by Artur O. on Saturday March 9th 2013, 15:58
Hi there, maintainers.

This has been an issue before and is an issue now. When people post testcases you/we should and need to review them before accepting them. We had allot of times where the game got Gold or even Garbage like now accepted to the testcases because people who make those tests don't even bother tho read the guidelines and just post it garbage because "they" could not google or search for a solution.

Sure reading each if there would be allot of them would be troublesome but there are not allot of people submitting the test cases and also seeing a pattern like "silver silver silver garbage" would at least need a frown no?
by Maquis196 on Monday January 7th 2013, 4:46
All, anyone else here play eve with optriun/primusrun? I run primusrun bash then launch eve. Yet the game still uses the intel card, so as you can imagine, runs like cr*p.

Just wondering if anyone else had this issue? Oh and yes, normally nvidia runs fine through that command, glxgears -info confirms its my nvidia being used as well.

EVE under Ubuntu 12.10
by Snytko Vadim on Sunday January 6th 2013, 14:38

I trying to install EVE under Ubuntu 12.10, but not very successfully.
First - trouble with downloading. Unfortunately, webinstaller can`t download needed files and routing me at this page:
I was download this files twice.
Every time I starting to install EVE, but to unsuccessful. There some strange in first and forth windows: and
Last window describe some error, but I can`t understand it.

The next step: I decompressed archives manually. Then I run eve.exe. Loader start checking files, and finally I saw the orange button "Play"!
Thats all! Game are not start in any case. I`ll try difference configurations:

winetricks corefonts d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 vcrun2008 vcrun2010

wineconfig: windows xp and windows 7

msvcr80, msvcr90 and msvcr100 I`ve setting each of in "native, then buildin", and in "buildin, native" states. d3dx9_36 and d3dx9_42 - as native.

In every case the ExeFile error will follow me:

I use next configuration:
AMD Athlon II X3 CPU
AMD HD6670 videocard
Ubuntu 12.10 32 bit
Catalyst 12.11 beta drivers

What I should to try?

PS: Sorry for my English!
