Re: Linux user thread

Selecting Tutorial only let you to create a blank project. No further actions.

Anyway, I'm happy with this beta version for Linux. This is already more than we, Linux people, ever expected :)

Re: Linux user thread

On my install, in fullscreen mode the text orientation doesn't change. Also no problems with fonts or cursor.

But I can say that "Defaults" does nothing at all.

Being built with Qt, I suppose we need a separate gtk-package ?

Re: Linux user thread

Scrivener extends vertically past the bottom of my screen, and I can't only resize it down enough to bring the rest into view. I have to switch to the next desktop down to see the bottom of the window unless I hide the main toolbar. Humorous work around I just discovered: Hide the Main Toolbar, max...

Not working here...

As for distraction-free editors: PyRoom, Marave, FocusWriter. Also Q10 in wine. But no software I previously used had this combination - organize your work + full-screen mode.

Re: Linux user thread

After playing a bit I discovered I can import image files (.png, .bmp) but only in Binder and Research. It looks like I'm not familiar with how Scrivener works :) I was craving for years to use Scrivener after I saw this image http://www.literatureandlatte.com/gfx/ScrivShots/FullScreenEvolvedBig.jpg...

otherwise known in Ubuntuland as Self-Appointed Benevolent Dictator For Life :lol: Well... we all remember that "meritocracy issue"... No wonder more and more distros are ditching that one and moving to debian (sid) ;) Now about Scrivener... I can't import anything but .txt and .rtf. Is s...

Re: Linux user thread

Do companies [...] make their money by selling services on top of the free stuff, then? (I know this has nothing to do with Scrivener, so is a bit off-topic... my excuse is that I'm intrigued, never having thought about the Linux commercial model before.) Yes, they do. More and more public institut...

Re: Distro info in sig

catalinux, I noticed you put your distro in your signature. Very cool idea--I admit I do feel kinda "well, duh, why didn't I think of that" :roll: Anyway, it's really helpful and I hope other Linux users will follow suit. Glad you liked it ;) I did it because we are using different distro...

Re: Linux user thread

I've had some strange behavior with resizing, too. Hitting Alt+F7 to drag the window around a bit first usually lets me resize it how I like afterward. Alt+F7 didn't helped. Somehow I can't change the height, only the width. I tried different resolutions, but my monitor supports nothing more than 1...

Re: Linux user thread

I can confirm, Exec=/lib/ld-linux.so.2 --library-path /lib:/usr/local/LiteraturAndLatte/lib /usr/local/LiteraturAndLatte/bin/Scrivener did the trick. And I must tell it works better than the wine version. Good job! p.s. no need to extract the content of the archive in /usr/local. Just make sure to p...

Installing cups-pdf solved the problem :d
