Re: Scrivener will never install on the current 64-bit Ubuntu :(

I'm sorry you haven't been able to get it to work. I'm not sure I can offer much more other than following the directions originally posted, but I do have it working in 64-bit Ubuntu without a shroot environment. The only difference I can think of is that my 13.10 Ubuntu was an "upgrade" f...

Re: SCRIVENER FOR LINUX 1.5.3.1 BETA RELEASED (*LATEST*)

The software is great - really looking forward to an official release. The main problem with the Beta though is that now with 80,000 words in my 'novel' Scrivener has become painfully and unusuably slow..... Not that it probably helps you, but as a different data point, I've got 93K words and haven...

Re: Scrivener not working on Ubuntu 13.10

To everyone else:
Has anyone else got this problem in 13.10 after upgrading?
Has anyone upgraded and not had this problem?


I've upgraded and not had that issue... I didn't have the smoothest upgrade possible (another package got hung up and gave me some issues), but so far, it's been ok.

Re: Visual Themes

I second the vote (for Merovech to share, please???)... I've tried (and partially succeeded) in getting Solarized "installed", but I still have things that don't work well. Seeing somebody else's take would be great. I think you could just save the settings to a file and upload that, altho...

Re: Spell Check

Thank you so much for this! Took a couple of try's (my mistake rebuilding the *.rws stuff), but it works!

Re: Keith, your Programming Skills

I'm certainly not Keith, and look forward to whatever response he might have, but wanted to pass on this link that I ran across just the other day. Has some good recommendations for online resources for some of what you are looking for that I thought might be helpful: http://thenextweb.com/dd/2013/0...

Re: Page breaks on compile seem to be getting lost

As the person with the Abiword comment, thanks so much for reminding me of ODT/LibreOffice (I use Libre)... why I didn't think to use it, but my system was set that double-clicking defaulted to Abiword. Duh. Anyway, Libre displays the page breaks correctly, and also shows annotations to the side as ...

Re: Page breaks on compile seem to be getting lost

I'll toss in that opening a generated RTF with Abiword (Linux) also seems to loose the page breaks... The PDF version is fine.

I know Linux isn't supported, etc., just wanted to add a data point in case it helps somebody.

Re: Installation Hysteria Update

Might check and make sure that when you copy/paste the serial number, you don't get an extra "space" at the end of it... I've seen that throw those things off in the past.

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

I will toss in, that many of us in the US (at least in my circle of friends) have a bit of fascination with the "original English" and the UK in general. Reading/hearing things in "UK English" is interesting and not a bother. Sometimes it takes a little bit of figuring out, but i...

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

Yup, it's matt no e in the UK (at least according to both Dulux and Crown). I'm happy sticking to the UK spelling. A quick look here in Canadia suggests that "matt/e emulsion" isn't a term used (they use "latex acrylic" instead of emulsion, apparently, which sounds even more kin...

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

I just wanted to make sure I wasn't alienating the US audience with a UK brand name! Okay, so... "Dave opened a tin of matt emulsion and started painting it on the walls" would work? Everyone in the US, Australia, UK and other English speaking target markets would understand that "Ma...

Re: AMERICANS! Please help...

I agree... "He took a tin of high-gloss and painted it on the wall." I think that would work for most everyone. I've read the recommendation to not spell things out toooo much for the reader, let them fill in the blanks. I think they will assume paint unless there is a strong reason not to...
