System is a new Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS Desktop installation.

You are running evelauncher.sh? It looks like the file "evelauncher" (not ".sh", but in the same directory) is not marked executable and your shell is trying to run it as a shell script, which, of course, fails.

Make sure you extract the launcher .tar correctly so it preserves permissions -- easiest would be to rename (or delete) where you extracted it before and start over from the downloaded .tar file.

CCP Snorlax, is it worthwhile to edit the top post to tell people to post launcher problems in the Linux forum rather than in this one thread?

I downloaded https://binaries.eveonline.com/evelauncher-1069348.tar.gz
and extracted to /home/bill/EVE and ran ./evelauncher.sh in a terminal

This is the result:

Does anyone understand what happened? The login screen came up, but then closed.

P.S. Same thing happens if I try again.

The aplication it seems to work only in systray but shows no window at all, if i try to open other windows from context menu in systray icon none window opens. I'm running Kubuntu 16.04
This is output running evelauncher.sh in console

After upgrade to 1086194.1042 "minimize to tray" work extremely unuseful:
1) on close to tray->restore lost all non pinned account login info;
2) on close to tray->restore lost "Launch account" icon status, so, I don't even see what clients are running, and what are not... so, now I could launch account one more time (and previous account session will be closed);
3) during launcher window restore from tray, window content looks corrupted and in 1 sec. do visible redraw (didn't see such issues before update).

Good day,
Thank you for helping out the Linux Community with this install. I was able to do this install on two laptops using Linux Mint 18. No troubles with ether install. One laptop has Dual AMD Graphics and the other is Intel Graphics. I was tired of Spyindos 10 and moved to Linux completely.

I was going to let my accounts expire due to boredom of the game but in light of the support for Linux here. I resubbed the accounts. Still bored with the game but I was glad to see the support. Maybe Next Content Patch will get me back in the game.



Thank You

Is there a link which always points to the latest launcher? something like https://binaries.eveonline.com/evelauncher-latest.tar.gz (does not work)?

I created a small wrapper script which I can put into /usr/local/bin which then downloads the launcher for a user if not already present. Can also easy reinstall, but it would be nice if it would reinstall the latest version.

The idea here is that it can be redistributed and installed via package manager in a location in the global search path.


#!/bin/bash
read -d '' usage << USAGE
This is a simple wrapper script to download, install and start the
eve-online launcher for Linux.

Usage:
eve [--help] [--remove] [--reinstall]

Options:
    --help
        Prints this help screen
    --remove
        Removes the eve-launcher installation. This will not remove the client cache
        which has to be removed manually.
    --reinstall
        Reinstalls the eve-launcher before it gets started.
USAGE

install_dir="${HOME}/.local/share/eve"
launcher_url="https://binaries.eveonline.com/evelauncher-1086194.tar.gz"

function print_help {
  echo "${usage}"
}

function install_launcher {
  if [ ! -d "${install_dir}/evelauncher" ]; then
    mkdir -p $install_dir
    curl $launcher_url | tar -xzv -C $install_dir
  fi
}

function remove_installer {
  rm -rf "${install_dir}/evelauncher"
}

function start_eve {
  ${install_dir}/evelauncher/evelauncher.sh
}

case $1 in
    "")
    install_launcher
    start_eve

    "--remove")
    remove_installer

Can i modify that?

I installed new machine yesterday, with Ubuntu 16.04. It was a clean server install + xubuntu-desktop, then I installed usual things that I needed.

Today, I wanted to setup EVE, and I experienced the issue where clicking on Play icon in launcher would silently fail and game would not start up.

By using log server, I noticed that it was trying to open libldap_r. As expected, I did have it installed on the system, but only 64-bit version.

Doing this fixed the problem:


sudo apt install libldap-2.4-2:i386


It will install some more dependencies, and that's it. Try restarting the game.

This might, or might not, apply for Mint 18 as well. Try and let us know if it helped.

same problem here. I extract in the directory but always the same message with the error. how can i check the properties of the file to check if this is what you are suggesting?

Le launcher se met bien à jour et fonctionne bien avec Linux Mint 18 "Sarah" Cinnamon 64 bit + Nvidia GT720 !!

Bravo pour cette compatibilité et un grand merci de montrer que les systèmes Linux peuvent s'adapter à des jeux aussi évolués qu'EVE Online.

Il faut maintenant que j'arrive à configurer Mumble avec ma vieille carte son EMU 0404 PCI (problème micro et haut-parleurs) certainement en achetant un micro-casque...

MERCI !! ♥♥♥

I'm about to try this launcher. I have been completely avoiding Wine on my Arch system, but EVE has pulled me over. I just wanted to pipe in and say thanks for creating this!

EDIT: The launcher would load but the game wouldn't launch. After doing a small bit of troubleshooting and browsing the forum here, I installed lib32-libldap and then the game worked! This is great!

Does logging off freeze the system for anyone else? Running Kubuntu 16.04.

It's not all the time, but often I'll log off from the game and everything just halts.

Binary from OP respected the DPI settings, but the downloaded launcher update does not. Not really a major issue but annoying when it seemed to be working before.
