Re: Scrivener not working on Ubuntu 13.10

Somebody running that Second Life game posted a way to make their program run, perhaps that would apply to 13.10 and Scrivener?

Re: Font rendering

FYI: I had thought that using a type1 font for composition might render better, but it does only slightly. I think it might be more of a function of the X based rendering than anything to do with Scrivener specifically. If you drop your Linux font hinting to "slight", you'll see better res...

Re: Ready for production use?

Good to hear. I was going to put CentOS in a VM to test it out, and glad to hear it works with Scrivener. Thanks for the report.

Re: problems with compiling to *.docx and *.odt

Linux on PowerPC

Is there any way to get Scrivener to run on a PPC (an old G4 tower in my case) running Ubuntu 10.10?
