Re: Linux virgin - Setting up laptop for Scrivener/Writing only

Another good Linux Distribution to consider that is windows friends would be Linux Mint. It has a lot of built in tool that take the difficulties out of harder to perform tasks. The Mate version is one of the best light weight desktops that I've used. Over all if you're looking for small, easy to us...

Re: mobi compile: how do I create a page with no title?

I'm not certain if it's possible. Odds are if it is then it's a function of MultiMarkdown. I can't verify that but it's the best hunch I've got after months of sporadic searching.

Re: Export of Scrivener leads to different filetypes

I tried to compile the book but, - compiling was really fast - and I did not I find the file Where do I have to look for it and how is it named? Ulf Verify that you don't have print selected, it's the default and I often forget myself, and try again. It should prompt you for a save location. If not...

Re: Installing Dictionary Fails

Actually, their is a solution it's the same bit that you need for the spellcheck function, at least it was for me. After you've installed all the appropriate libaspell libraries you should be good to go with installing whatever dictionaries you want without giving Scrivener root access.

Re: Bug* Emptying Trash

I'm using Linux Mint Debian Edition, fully up to date. Cinnamon is the desktop. As I said though it only crashes when I'm still viewing one of the files as I empty the trash, and to be clear it crashes once I click on something else afterwards. This occurs on both my desktop and laptop which are con...

Bug* Emptying Trash

Emptying the trash with one of the files selected leads to a crash when you attempt to select a new file to view.

Re: Export of Scrivener leads to different filetypes

I'm unfamiliar with exporting, as I don't see the need for it myself. However, Compiling it also gives you the option of ODT. I would start there to get what you need. For testing purposes I would like to know if you were exporting multiple files at once, or a single file. I assume multiple but I wa...

Re: Error importing ODT files

Another work around would probably be saving the file as a PDF as those are supported, or RTF (I just tested this so I can confirm that it is supported.).

Seems a bit poor that ODT and DocX files aren't supported as of yet. This is beta though, we can't expect a fine coat of gloss just yet.

Re: Error importing ODT files

It can definitely import. I just tried from a very large, image rich, pdf and it all went fine. I haven't tested ODT or DocX yet. If I get some time soon I'll try both of those for you to see what I can find out.

Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

As a complete noob to linux, I have formatted my Acer netbook, got rid of Windows 7 starter because it was so slow, and now installed Linux mint, Cinammon edition and Scrivener to match. It runs a treat and will be kept just as is for distraction free writing. Never realised that Linux was so good,...

Re: A Scrivener only no distractions laptop

Ahh... I'm sorry to hear that. With any luck you'll find a better solution someday. In the mean time I will look into your problem and see if I can find a solution.
Best of luck.

Re: Help! Still can't get Scrivener to install on Linux Mint 13

On thing that you might want to ensure is that you have the correct version installed, as in 64 or 32 bit. I had this problem when I switched my desktop over to scrivener.

Re: Remove timeout please ...

Is your copy of Scrivener entirely up to date? There may be a new version out and updates required. The current Beta for Scrivener on Linux is, and correct me if I'm wrong, but the end of next year.

Re: Help with Mint Debian 64-bit question

I just read in the post above this one, about how Graybyrd was successful in getting the Windows 1.7.1 to run on Wine. I'm going to try that route instead of trying to load the older version of Scrivener on the Mint Debian. And while I'm at it I'm going to re-install Mint 17. I'm not too keen on th...
