We need a real Linux version of this game. With Steam on Linux now, there's never been a better time. I've tried a few different times in Linux Mint 14, both with Wine 1.4.1 and with the dev version, 1.5.23, and I can't get it working. I got the closest with 32-bit Mint. I got it patched and got to the Starfleet chevron loading screen like so many people have and it went no farther. In 64-bit, it won't even patch. In all attempts, I used Winetricks to install IE8, vcrun2008 and DirectX 9.
I refuse to go back to Windows, so I guess it's bye-bye to STO for me for now. Hopefully, the devs will realize that there's a Linux market out there and port the game in the near future.
