Not natively, but you could give wine a shot.

I have been trying for days to run it in wine and im running wine ver 1.34 and i get stuck at the screen before you can select a server. its as if the client never gets a response from the server to move to the next step. so I have a nice picture of a Jedi with a commando in bg and that little mechanical wheel that spins randomly at the bottom right just laughing at me and forcing me to play wow instead of swtor during the day

It would be great if someone made it work. i want to play swtor so badly on this machine but cant atm but it will work eventually. Wine community is quite smart and will figure this out soon enough. most donít have time to game so they donít even have a subscription or early game access since they did not preorder. So I hope it does not linger till hey release a trial version for them to crack it

Have you considered running it on the Windows 7 machine you have?

Hey, someone had to ask it.

i run it at home on windows 7. But where I am during the day, I run Ubuntu. I can not install winblows on this machine since i need a linux base enviroment for many other things. I play wow and lotro in wine with out any issues. I just can not get swtor running atm but it will work eventually. Someone just needs to find out why this screen is hanging, patch wine and move on.

Does not look to be running well under Wine yet. It's a popular title I expect it to rapidly gain support like Starcraft II did when it went retail.
