Re: Gemini PDA: the second coming of the Psion 5?

Well my Gemini PDA arrived at last and I am typing this on it. Those with an interest in a full review should try googling. It is very much a writer's machine, being a pocketable clamshell device with the best-in-class Psion 5 keyboard attached to a modern phone screen and hardware. Plus a good size...

Re: Gemini PDA: the second coming of the Psion 5?

I haven't tried this, but someone in the Gemini forums said ExaGear Desktop might be a solution. I've also ordered the Planet Gemini pda and am looking forward to receiving one in the next few weeks and seeing what I can run on it. Scrivener is a program I would *love* to have running. A keyboarded ...

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Not fixed for me I'm afraid.
I haven't checked whether I've got the latest Linux version though. Will have to do so when I'm next on my Mint Linux laptop.
All the best,
Ian

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Hmm. I haven't been able to edit the text using Graybyrds 'workaround', though I am able to select text that was already entered and send it to Scrivener. Thanks very much to those working on this problem. It would be really nice to see the scratchpad working. (I'll keep looking in here every once i...

Re: Installation Problem : "Wrong architecture 'i386' "

Is it possible that you are running a 64 bit system and therefore it objects to the 32 bit code? If so you might try following various tips in this thread: http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=19838&start=60#p140913 Hope that helps. All the best, Ian PS That is regard...

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Yes. I just installed the latest Beta too. Same (lack of) behaviour remains: The scratchpad opens. Shows a list of files in the scratchpad folder, which floats above all other windows. Can click on those files and the contents are displayed. But all typing goes straight to the Scrivener window and n...

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Does anyone know whether scratchpad now works with the latest released Scrivener (1.5.0.9). I'm using Scrivener on this computer for work at the moment so reluctant to upgrade until I've tried it on my non-work computer for a few days to check things run ok. (And I've a deadline so it might be a few...

Re: 1.2.6 Scrivener for Linux RELEASED

I've managed to get it to work. For any who might have the same problem, here are the steps I took. For each library that was missing (several from libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0; several from libgstreamer0.10-0; and one from liborc-0.4-0), I searched packages.debian.org to find what package they w...

Re: 1.2.6 Scrivener for Linux RELEASED

PS I've tried unpacking and copying libgstapp-0.10.so.0 and libgstapp-0.10.so.0.25.0 to both /usr/lib32/ and /usr/lib32/i386-linux-gnu/ and then running ldconfig. Scrivener still fails with the same complaint about being unable to find the missing lib. I infer I'm putting it in the wrong place or mi...

I have this same problem (i.e. the missing libgstapp-0.10.so.0) http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/posting.php?mode=quote&f=33&p=140342#pr140285 @claydoh, thanks for your tips. However the required lib is not included in gstreamer0.10-plugins-base:i386 for the debian 6 distrib. And how ...

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Ah. OK. Thanks very much for the reply. Great to know that it *should* work. Must be something wrong with my setup then. My symptoms are: Scratchpad window comes up, but can't be moved (which is a problem when I'm using two monitors and it comes up off-screen, as it is doing at present), isn't trans...

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Just curious: I assume no reply means no workarounds for this issue yet. The scratchpad feature can't be used on Linux, right?
Thanks in advance for your reply and sorry if I should have been able to find an answer elsewhere (I did look).

Re: Scrivener Scratchpad Uses Invalid Linux Pathname

Is there an easy work around for this, while it is being fixed for the next version? Currently scratchpad does not work for me in Linux.
Thanks,
Ian

Hm. Now I'm embarrassed I asked. :oops: I forgot that you might be reading this, Keith.

Re: Opening Mac Scrivener project (v1.54)

Thanks, Robert, for the quick response. That would explain it then. Hmm. Perhaps it is time to upgrade. I've been so happy with the earlier version I haven't seen a great deal of need to try 2.0 yet--plus I've been using Linux a lot more than Mac recently, returning to Mac largely just to run scrive...
