Re: Scrivener cant be installed on Ubuntu 16.10

I found that my previously working install of Scrivener suddenly wouldn't open after upgrade to Ubuntu 16.10 :/ Here's the terminal output: /usr/share/scrivener/bin/Scrivener: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory I had a quick...

Re: Opening Windows Created Project in the Linux Version - Blank

This is also awkward. My 'link' to the .scrivx apparently became it's own project, and created it's own Files, Settings, and Snapshots folders on the desktop. So the file structure was there, but of course there was no text inside! This could be a linux thing, I'm a newb so don't know for sure. But ...

Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

Just installed the .deb on Ubuntu 14.04 w/Unity. Launched from terminal, pinned it to the launchbar, done. I was a bit nervous, I'm a Linux newb, and Scrivener was the one must have app I hadn't installed yet because beta, and faffing with the terminal etc. Turned out I didn't need to do anything I ...
