I see it says there that a linux version will be released next week. I don't like trying to run windows stuff in wine. Do you do that all the time or just now while you're waiting for the linux version?--i.e., is the windows version under wine somehow better than the native linux version? I haven't tried out all the features yet to see what works and what doesn't.

The native dll's aren't needed anymore. When I installed Scrivener on my laptop, I forgot to copy them over, and Scrivener installed and works just fine. You'll need winetricks and the things listed in the wiki, though. (vcrun2005, the later one I'm forgetting, dotnet, and quartz. corefonts and fontsmooth, if you want it looking nice. Disable fontsmooth when you reinstall or uninstall Scrivener, though.)
Code: Select all
winetricks vcrun2008 vcrun6 quartz dotnet20

And it'll be hideous, and slow, because it's a windows program running under wine.

[...] On my screen, the fonts are all different sizes and quality mixed and matched all over the interface. In some places they look fine, like on the index cards. In the editor, the drop-down list of fonts overlaps the rows of font names and displays garbage characters on each line after the name. In some areas like Document Notes, the font is *huge* and doesn't seem to be adjustable.
