I'm on Debian testing (gnome) and I just noticed that updating gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad from 1.10.0-1 to 1.10.1-1 pulls libssl1.1 version 1.1.0c-1.
This breaks the launcher since it seems to break qt network stuff.

You will see a bunch of this error messages at the end of

I fixed it by downgrading, but I'm not sure how to handle this issue in the future because gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad is required by some gnome components What?

Thanks for posting this - I didn't know about the existence of the log files, all I could see under strace and ltrace was the networking calls hanging.

I upgraded my Debian unstable install for the first time in weeks yesterday and hit this issue. I've resolved it by copying and from an un-updated machine, and dropped them into the evelauncher folder - you'll need to rename or symlink them to and

Thank you for the hint with copy to launcher folder. For everyone having the same problem on Debian testing: and are in /usr/lib/x86_64linux-gnu/

Maybe CCP Snorlax can include it in the launcher files. I'll mail him and ask.

easy fix for those affected without messing up your distribution:
download libssl-1.0.0 (eg from here:
use midnight commander(mc) or another tool to unpack libssl and libcrypto into the evelauncher folder. since the shellscript sets LD_LIBRARY_PATH, the copied version takes precedence over the installed version)
you find the libs in the deb-archive under CONTENT/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

I had this problem too. Copying and renaming and to the EVE launcher folder was enough.

I had to do it again after the recent launcher update. It seems to delete this files on update. So better copy and somewhere one folder above or something like that to fix it again without looking for the files every time.

Sadly I got no answer so far from CCP Snorlax if he could include the files in the launcher download. Sad

Ok to summarize steps to be taken sofar when on Debian Testing/Stretch and using wine-staging:

Check if you have still installed libssl1.0.2, normally libssl1.0.2_1.0.2j-4 should still be installed,
otherwise reinstall it. It is still in the Testing/Stretch repo's.

Make a symlinks in the evelauncher directory:
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/

In case you are running into the wineserver mismatch versions rename SharedCache/wine/bin/wineserver to or just remove it.

I can now launch and run EVE with my custom wine-staging 1.9.23.

Thx guys for giving me the pointers to get it working again.

Thank you guys for your write-up here. I've been struggling with this bug since my last update and now I finally have it working. The key point I was missing was creating the naming links between the libraries.

Cheers Big smile

Thanks a lot guys, I don't think I would have found this on my own!
