Warning on WINE 5.9

So this is one of the rare times when newer isn't better. :) WINE 5.9 has some pretty serious regressions that older versions don't have. Scrivener runs, but crashes on exit. (Mouse movements are reversed in Skyrim...) I'd hold off upgrading to 5.9 for the time being. Hopefully the balance will be f...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

Thanks for the comment. Apologies it was so late. I got really sick, and haven't been active with anything online, really. Glad to hear you're working the project out though. Best of luck with it! Ack. :( Hopefully it's not covid-19. How you feeling now? I had a friend with La 'Rona, and he was pre...

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

We're getting by. Our state is starting to reopen some things, even though there are still over 100 deaths a day. Masks are mandatory, although there's a not-insignificant amount who think their freedom is being impinged upon. This crisis is really showing the best and worst of people, that's for ce...

Re: Very slow first startup of the day

Are you having network issues? Could it be the update server timing out?

Re: Upgraded scrivener for wine and then shortcut deleted itself.

I don't recommend using playonlinux. I use wine-staging (currently at 5.4). If you're using the beta, you'll need speechsdk and .net 4.6 or above. (See Tiho's stickied post on this forum for instructions. You need to uninstall wine-mono from the wineprefix.)

Re: WINE 5.0 and Scrivener 2.9.0.x

I just updated my Ubuntu to the latest version, 20.04, and Scrivener 2.9.0.x via Wine no longer works. This could be because the new Ubuntu version now has Wine 5.0. But I installed speechsdk and it makes no difference. (I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Scrivener 2.9.0.4 beta, both di...

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

That said, outside of core, never trust a distro version of ANYTHING in linux to be the latest. The more it is in the contrib section the less likely you are to get a recent version. If you are familiar with linux you will know that any linux code run on any linux distribution. This isn't MS vs App...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I've downloaded from the WineHQ site the newest .NET architecture files but I'm ignorant of how to extract them to the proper directory. Hopefully I'll get some guidance there. That's wine-mono. That won't work, if you read the stickied thread by tiho, one of the Scrivener devs. You need to uninsta...

Re: Scrivener - Windows & Linux Versions

I would not use Play on Linux. It's notoriously out of date in the best of circumstances. Also, be sure to update winetricks, because the one shipped with most distros is also out of date. I use wine-staging I've built myself, so there might be some patches it has that stock WINE does not.

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

The loss of an entire generation would profoundly hurt those left behind in many, many different ways. Plus, it says to those vulnerable that they're expendable, which they very much aren't. Or: why we're sitting our asses at home on a 65-degree, sunny afternoon. Of course, it's allergy season, so w...

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

Yeah...I don't see how a lot of things can go back to "normal" after this. I mean, optimistic estimates say only 1.1 million Americans will die, if we all lock down everything weeks ago. And...yeah. I keep thinking back to my great-grandmother's stories of the Spanish Flu. Thankfully, she ...

Re: Lions, and tigers, and...viruses?

Yeah, we freelancing introverts, too, so it's kind of life as usual. Fortunately one of the big Bruins fans is putting games up on his youtube channel, so that scratches the hockey itch. We're OK on toilet paper for the moment. Hopefully people will stop panic-buying by the time we run out.

Not quite. Think of WINE as another API.
