Installing Eve in Linux

1. Complete the Online registration and download the client.

2. Using KPackage, open the downloaded file and check out the dependencies which need to be resolved.

3. The dependencies for Eve are, according to KPackage

libc6 (>= 2.2.4-4)
xlibmesa3 | libgl1
python (>= 2.4)
python-gtk2 (>= 2.6)

Most of them should be already installed, with perhaps the exception of python-glade2 and python2.4-dbus (actually in the repo's as "python-dbus" for some reason). Install all that is missing and then click on "install" in KPackage.

4. An "Eve Online" icon should now appear under Kmenu>Games. Click on it and follow the instructions, choosing the internet install option (unless of course you have the necessary files stored locally). Downloading the files should take around an hour.
