in the launcher though, everything displays correctly and the news and release notes window displays all the information, but the patch progress bar is missing (the blue backdrop is still there though) and there is just black where the engage button should be...
It's the same thing here, but you can just click 'Patch' when it says 'Ready' and the game will launch fine.
If there's a patch being installed, you can see the progress in the titlebar and it won't say 'Ready'.
So after two days, I've read through I think all of this thread. And it's been 20 years since I screwed with unix/linux based OS's... so frankly I'm lost.
That would be fine if I wasn't set on getting STO to play on my newly rebuilt Frankenstein PC.
I'm running Ubuntu - Lucid Lynx (10.04 LTS )
And I'm frankly lost. It sounds like Wiine source needs to be edited and compiled with some hacks/tweeks, but I'm frankly out of my league. Put a Harley of any year in front of my toolbox and I'm good to go with any of it... but computers and programming stopped being my forte sometime around 1994.
Is there someone who knows exactly what to do that wouldn't mind walking me through it either over Vent or g-talk?
After butchering my way through a bit here's where I'm at.
Tried installing from disk running under wine. Worked with hangups till Star Trek Online.lnk, then the installer stalls out. But it's installed Star Trek Online.exe. So I configured Wine to run it in Winxp and launched it using the lastest Wine (1.1.42).
Launcher loads to login page, I try to log in, and it goes to "loading launcher" and then refreshes the log in page.
I have winetricks, but I can't figure out how to use it. What I've found are examples of people accessing it through something listed under plugins, but I don't have a plugins tab on any window in Ubuntu.
I've come to the end of what I can do with the information that I have.
