Arc Client Installs without error
What does not
After installing the Arc Client, I clicked on the INSTALL Button in the Library tab to install Star Trek Online, which causes an immediate crash with an error stating ArcErrRep.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. I've installed ie8, vcrun2008, and even tried installing dx9 using winetricks each time I encountered this error to no resolve. This crash is happening on multiple distributions as well.
What was not tested
Could not install Star Trek Online
Toshiba P775D Laptop
AMD A8-3520 APU w/Radeon 6620HD Graphics
Using latest Mesa and Radeon graphics libs included with each respective distro (No proprietary drivers due to known issues with closed source Radeon drivers for all Linux distros)
If walking forward causes your character to roll you will need to enable a work around in the console before playing the game and once finished disable the work around. This is a bug in X that has been fixed so newer distributions will not have this issue.
xset r off
xset r on
In general you will want to play STO using the low graphics option in the profile selector that comes up when the game loads. If you have very recent hardware you will be able to play using the higher graphics option.
Any other bugs you find should be reported!

i think that the only way to play this game on a mac or linux is through steam due to the aforementioned arc crash
im in the midst of testing in now on 1.9.2 (staging)
Nothing happens when I click the icon

STO is installed on my windows 7 drive. I'm using wine 1.9.1 on linux mint 17.3. When I click on the executable, I get the spinning circle for awhile, then nothing.
When I use the terminal and type "wine Star\ Trek\ Online.exe"
I get the following:
wine client error:0: version mismatch 447/492.
Your wineserver binary was not upgraded correctly,
or you have an older one somewhere in your PATH.
Or maybe the wrong wineserver is still running?

The "Garbage" ratings given to this game are entierly false and only given due to a lack of patients!
On the first start-up after upgrading wine to 1.7.50+, the game will take extremely long to load (upwards of 45mins in some cases). Once the game finally does load, you will return to your normal load times.
This can be partially alleviated by setting "d3dx11_36" "d3dx11_42" and "d3dx11" to "DISABLED" manually in winecfg, and by setting the windows version to XP. This will result in a 15-20minute inital loading time, afterwards your load times will resume their normal duration.
This is due to the new D3DX11 implementation being worked into WINE (starting with 1.7.50), the game recognizes that new D3D capabilities are available and re 'tests' the system to see what it can handle. Due to the d3dx11 implementation being incomplete it runs into alot of internal errors, freezes and the like in the loading process. Eventually it will default itself back to DX9 and you will continue on your merry way without having to run through all those again on subsequent startups.
Just have patients, the game works perfectly fine.
Will not exit

I just brought up the STO menu and selected exit and it just stopped and the mouse pointer disappeared. I had to bring up the skull and cross bones to kill it. [CTRL] + [ALT] + [ESC]. I still get the buffer underruns about 97% of the time!
Delta Rising doesn't work
by Atontao on Saturday November 8th 2014, 8:02
After the Delta Rising expansion, Star Trek Online stopped to work under linux. I can't get past the Loading... screen after showing the Delta Rising logo.
If I check Task Manager, game client is not responding.
I can change this a bit, switching the D3Dcompiler_42.dll from native to internal, but then I get like 400+ shader error on a log file and the game finally works, resets all the grafics sets and the only thing I can see is the GUI, all 3D objects aren't there, just a background with red X's on it.
On my XP the game works, tho it gets 3 or 4 shader errors. My GFX card is an Nvidia GeForce 210 and I use Ubuntu 12.04. Updated the propietary drivers to the lastest I found and I play holodeck.
