I am writing this on my phone while I wait for windows to boot after another unsuccessful try to get STO to run on my Linux install. And windows is so slow in comparison, so very slow.
Anyway the only reason I have a windows partition is for this game, and sadly the old xp is going to have to go soon. Its just too old and creaky, and really? taking space just for a game? but I love this game.. but windows must go.... arrgh
I hope, following the lead of companies like valve/steam and blizzard, even EA, that cryptic start looking at the potential of Linux and ubuntu etc.
right windows nearly booted..... and time for some STO
Also I am uninstalling wine and all the previous tweaks I attempted to resolve this before the Ubuntu upgrade. Evidentially this issue was resolved in the past with other Linux versions - Ill try to read up on those as well.

I updated to 13.04 as well but there is a problem winetricks isn't anymore in the store
I was willing to try to enter this in the launcher ( i found it on the tribble maintainence They said wine users needed to fill it in
