Re: Scrivener cant be installed on Ubuntu 16.10

This is how I was able to get Scrivener to start up on Ubuntu 16*: sudo apt-get install libgstreamer0.10-dev libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-dev I don't know if that will help with your missing libpng12.so.0 library, but it worked for me. If it doesn't, just find something that includes the libraries...

Re: Linux 1.9.01 Beta Released

Thanks for this Lee. Much appreciated.

I would urge anyone using the Linux client to go ahead and buy a Windows license. I did, and I think this linux client should be rewarded somehow. It seems a windows-license is the easiest way.

Bar tab for Linux version

I know I'm not very active on this forum. I'm busy with my books. :) What I would suggest though, hence my post here, that those of us Linux users who use Scrivener put something in the jar for the devs to thank them for their work on this Linux version. I've bought a Windows License just for this p...

Re: 1.7.x for linux?

That is brilliant. Like someone said above, while I don't use Windows, I've purchased a Windows license to put something in the jar for your work on Linux. :)

I do hope though that you'll make it a little bit easier on us 64-bit users and make a 64 bit version.

Re: Running Scrivener on Debian 7 Wheezy

Thank you so much. The installs of those packages did the trick. Guess I won't have to go back to Ubuntu after all. Scrivener is a key program for me, and I'd like it to work. :lol: I just don't like having big data miners in my computer. It's enough to have to suffer them on Google and elsewhere. I...

Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

I used to be a die-hard Ubuntu fan, but given the current surveillance scandals and since Canonical sends all my searches to Amazon, I switched from Ubuntu to Debian.

However, I can't get Scrivener to run on Debian. Bah. :lol:

Running Scrivener on Debian 7 Wheezy

Hi, I'm having a bit of trouble running Scrivener on Debian 7 Wheezy, AMD 64 bit. I've installed the program with: su -c "dpkg -i --force-architecture scrivener-1.5.3.1-beta.deb" Given that I need 32 bit architecture to run, I've tried to use the ia32-libs, but those are depracated on Debi...

It is likely that this beta may crash from time-to-time; however, we have worked very hard to ensure that your data is continuously backed up and retrievable with a simple restart of the program. However, if you extremely Please READ THE TUTORIAL on getting data in and out of scrivener via import a...

Beta 1.4 - 'Close project' menu-item closes program

Thanks for the new version. It looks very good! However, one thing that is happening for me is that on a Win 7 64 bit, selecting 'Close project' menu item closes the application. The closing is silent, ie there's nothing from the app, it just closes, so I'm not sure how to get data to you about what...

Re: Cursor just gone [BUG LOGGED]

Yesterday I got a new laptop with 64 bit Windows 7 Home premium, and today the cursor disappeared when I changed the ruler setting from showing inches to showing centimetres. I haven't been able to get it back. I've unchecked basically everything, and rechecked everything again. I've restarted Scriv...

Re: The warm and fuzzies about Scrivener

Don't knock yourselves. You help all of us with the workflows. In these nanotimes, it may get a little excessive at times, as some of us may be on high gear.

But credit where credit is due. Love it.

Re: Beta 1.3 - Corkboard + Edit scrivenings

Yeah, I'm not sure it's a bug either. I can see scenarios where the corkboard and scrivenings work with containers, and presents the text of the containers. Ie, when I'm working with my 'chunk' I see all of my chunk, and do more granular selections in the binder. Still. I'm lazy. I want to be able t...

The warm and fuzzies about Scrivener

I thought I'd start another thread to spread the warm and fuzzies about Scrivener for Windows. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! for developing this version.
