Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Thanks for the comment. I perhaps shouldn't have been so worried about the compatibility and thereby wasted so much time. The fact the essay appears it will be approaching 200 pages (w/ numerous footnotes), using a 6" x 9" page format, is the reason it concerned me. But, from the brief rev...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I've made so many posts on various forums and in e-mails - here, on a Linux Mint one, and to L&L and Code Weavers, I'm not sure which I mentioned previously and to which you are referring. It's probably, though, <NDP462-KB3151800-x86-x64-AllOS-ENU.exe>. In order to save space in Root, and as the...

Scrivener Registration Problem

Having had problems registering Scrivener under either Wine or Crossover, I was in contact w/ L&L for any suggestions. One of their agents referred me to this forum to address my questions. Since I expect this is for persons using the Linux version of Scrivener - which I have installed successfu...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Just an addendum to my preceding post. I apparently hadn't been infused w/ enough morning coffee when I composed it ... The reference to "Crosstalk" should of course be read to mean "Crossover". As I just opened it to see if it could remedy the Net conundrum, I realized my error.

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

This is a combined reply to The Swede and Jaysen. I did (after a bit of confusion) easily install Scrivener for Linux 1.9.0.1 Beta and it appears to run w/out problem. I also used it to open the essay (about 65% to 80% composed under Scrivener for Windows 1.9.16). (I created a folder in Documents fo...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Unfortunately Crossover did _not_ get me over the main hurdle. On trying a second time to register I received the two (2) below error messages. I have now installed Scrivener 1.9.16 at least three (3) times under Crossover but each time have been unsuccessful in registering it. The initial times I u...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

OK, I tried a new "line of attack" ... I decided, per a recommendation here, to give Crossover a whirl. It _did_ download and install the Net 4.0 framework *including* 4.6.2. On starting Scrivener under Crossover it NO LONGER complains about the Net framework. However, I _did_ receive the ...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

This process has been so confusing and frustrating that I completely forgot the Net designations. Instead of "3.0, 4.0, 5.0 as well as 6.0", I should have said "3.0, 4.0, 4.5 as well as 4.6". This process has been so frustrating that I'm now reconciled to having to use Win 7 for ...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I believe the NET updates are cumulative. So it attempts to install 3.0, 4.0, 5.0 as well as 6.0. It has repeatedly, or at least frequently, stalled at requesting me to rename <dotnetfx3>. Since NET 3.0 is so old, it may be 32 Bit. Since my LMDE 3 system is 64 Bit, as well as (I believe) Scrivener b...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

A brief supplement to my last post. I now note that those panels didn't refer to the Mono issue, but other warnings I received when trying to install .NET 4.6.2. One of the first complaints Winetricks generated, after the complaint about the 64-bit WINEPREFIX, was of the following text: "Mono d...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Assuming wine-mono is installed, how do I uninstall it. From the first below panel (which I have observed previously) Winetricks complains it isn't installed. I decided anyway to make the effort to use Winetricks to try to install dotnet 4.6, and it returned the second below panel. Any ideas? If Cro...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Thanks. I've earlier opened a topic at the Linux Mint site, and will open a new one focusing just on Wine. While I'm familiar w/ command line work (at least to some extent) from using and working in OS/2 for about 25 years, I'm still a newbie to Linux architecture. I've downloaded from the WineHQ si...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I decided to try playing w/ PlayOnLinux again. Speculating the problem might be w/ the version of Wine I was trying to use - now having multiple versions of Wine installed - I went to Configure->Configure Wine. Though I was not able to select a particular version, it did open the usual Windows tabbe...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I apprehended that this might be the case w/ PoL. I'll check on some possible necessary upgrade to Winetricks.

Thanks.
