Could not Initialize GLX

Its my first post here. I have searched for answers to this. Here and in the Arch forums. I found a similar issue from an Arch user, and it appeared to be Graphics issues (this user had Nvidia drivers installed) I don't appear to have Nvidia drivers. I do think I'm looking at a graphics issue here.
Brand new installation; The only changes I've made are in troubleshooting this. Any help would be great.

The error I get when I try to run the Eve launcher is first; followed by system configuration data which I see regularly requested on these forums. I'd be happy to provide more info should anyone need it to help me.

This is a Windows game and looking here gives me the impression that this is unofficial and/or just a wine wrapper. After finding this game on Lutris reveals that it is a Steam game, so just install it from Steam instead and see if it launches. Make sure you enable Steam Play for unsupported titles in the Steam settings.

Thanks for replying. I'll try to run it on steam. Even steam has issues though - there are things which are not displaying correctly on steam. I'm thinking the issue is going to persist. I'll update after attempting your solution. Thanks.
