Well, we are going to need to know if you are getting any error messages...

Also, there are several dependencies from Windows that STO needs. Certain DLL's that you need, and in some cases IE (helped one with that about a year ago).

Try introducing IE into your WINE box... That might actually give you what you need (since it includes updated versions of the dlls in question).

Sorry... I am an oldtimer... WINE is of cause a emulator.

I belive the link you referred to indicates that you should use the console to initiate the launcher.

Simply put in the line into the console (terminal) and it may launch. The line seems safe.

This may also help you:

Well either the .exe is damaged, or the link is wrong.

STO should not be located in the System32 folder... Whats the path on your Ubuntu for STO?
