Re: Who want a Linux release version?

I don' know how LitNLat view you, but I don't consider you a user of supported / paid software. What you consider me is largely irrelevant. I am actually two people in L&L's eyes -- one of me is the user of the free version of Scrivener for Linux. The other bought the full version of the Window...

Re: How do I buy it?

Look, I don't want to be That Guy On The Forum, but I guess I will be... I'm getting a bit pessimistic about Scrivener on Linux. Based on past experience with great software on other non-mainstream operating systems (I don't think Linux quite fits that category any more, but it's close enough to rou...

Re: Defect Report: 'Check spelling as you type' with Linux Beta

I'm willing to bet it's because libaspell-dev isn't installed.

Re: Unable to donate...

A number of us just went out and bought licenses for the Windows version. At one point in time it was better to run the Windows version via WINE anyway, especially if you were on a 64 bit system. Lately though I've been getting the feeling that interest in supporting Linux, unofficial or not, has fl...

Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

do you have libaspell-dev installed? I think that's the one I always miss.

Re: Scrivener doesn't exist for Kbuntu?

You're not going to find Scrivener in the Kubuntu repositories because it isn't free software. In order to be included in a base Ubuntu or Kubuntu distribution, it has to be distributed under the correct licenses. Scrivener is proprietary so you're not going to find it there. Also, the Linux Scriven...

Re: How to download Scrivener for Linux Mint?

Go to the 1.7.2.3 post above and download the deb. Mint is based on ubuntu so the deb should work.

Re: save .scriv files to usb stick, open in different computers

I use bitsync to create a shared folder between multiple computers which is where I keep all my Scrivener projects. Works pretty well.

Re: Is there some kind of trace function I can use with Scriv?

1.7.2.3 might have fixed this problem, whatever it was. Didn't get a segfault after upgrading. Fingers crossed!

Re: Is there some kind of trace function I can use with Scriv?

I now use a python script to quickly set/reset constants.py when troubleshooting python segmentation faults in different apps I'm testing/developing. But I've not yet hit a segmentation fault error in Scrivener. Is there any way to do this with a flag? It seems like the easiest way to handle this w...

Re: Is there some kind of trace function I can use with Scriv?

I don't have a constants.py in /usr/share/pyshared/gobject - I wonder if the problem is I'm missing some python resources Scrivener needs to run?
