I have been through these forums and the forums on Winehq to try and fix this problem. Starting the game using POL i have everything working so far... except the ingame browser. It says there is a serious error...
Funny thing is, if i go to the directory where eve is installed, right click the launcher program and open with wine that way everything works to include the In Game Browser! So I believe I am missing something in the install of the game in POL i just dont know what. I installed vcrun2005, 2008, 2010... corefonts, etc. Still missing something.
I am running Linux Mint 16 KDE, i have installed latest Wine and POL from PPA's.
What version of Wine are you using? You might have to install Internet Explorer 8 to use game browser functionality. I have noticed in the past some game clients require IE8: Arc, League of Legends, Origin, Uplay
But the newer versions of Wine have really improved quartz and now most of these games don't require IE8 anymore.
