How I got EQ to run on Linux with Playonlinux (PoN) System: Laptop. Toshiba A505-S6985 Core 2 duo Video: GeForce GT 230M The next 3 steps are not required, I just wanted to do this form a clean Linux Install. Format HDD so no OS is on it. Install Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit LTS from USB flash drive (Or ISO from CD). Update Linux. Now for getting EQ to work on Linux. All the below are free to the public. Install Playonlinux (PoN) PoN takes a lot of the work out of installing and configuring Wine. Go out to Playonlinux web site and download ubuntu update. Open PoN again and it will prompt to install MS Fonts. Next will not respond for 1 min, wait to click Next and agree to ELUA. Wait. Next, and wait about 1 min and click next again. Now to install Wine from PoN. Tools/Manage Wine Versions. I installed the latest offers, 1.5.14. Select and click arrow to add to list. Prompt will come up, click next and wait. Close Wine list when done. Now to add a virtual windows drive. In PoN click Configure Click new. Next and highlight your wine ver and next. Name the drive. I called mine Games, next. Click Install for mono. Dot next stuff. Now highlight your virtual drive and click on Install packages tab. Install dxfullsetup. Install dx11 Download the eq client from SoE in PoN click Install Program At bottom click install a non listed program and click ok. Click next, edit or update an existing application, next. Check show virtual drive, highlight Games and click next. Click next again, don't check any option. Browse to the location of the EQ Install client. Highlight and open. Accept default location. Don t install the DX client, we already did that. Wait and wait some more. You should now see the EQ log in screen, don't log in yet. Close out and you will be prompted to create short cuts. Highlight the Launch pad and follow the prompts, give it a name. You can do the same with Everquest.exe Two options at this point. Log in and patch or Copy the install from a windows client over. (I would only copy over the zone files but that's up to you) Once done log in. If you don't see your toon then do the following. Edit your eqclient.ini and change your VertexShader. Its either a True/False or 1/0. I had to change mine from True to 0 The first two times I logged in took a bit of time, after that its going good. Running two accounts off the same install works just like in windows. But the first time you start the second client you may need to close out, wait a few sec and start it again. As of 11-05-2012 Running 2 accounts at the same time with out issue. Tabbing is fast. Updates to Linux and EQ are no issue.
