Re: An interesting problem with Wine & product registration

While the reminder is annoying, you understand that it'll keep working, regardless, right? As for turning off your firewall for a few seconds and turning it back on, that's simply the fastest and easiest way to see if the issue you're having is due to firewall settings (not the only way, but the fas...

Re: An interesting problem with Wine & product registration

Hm. I didn't have a problem with it. Maybe try setting your router(s) to be DMZ hosts for just long enough to connect? (It should keep working anyway, but yeah, the message would be annoying.)

Re: All templates blank, and no images in Scrivener 1.0.1

Dude, I think I may have accidentally re-introduced this bug when I built the .deb. My plate overfloweth, but I'll get on it ASAP. What I've done in the meantime is test two approaches--Creating brand new empty projects in WINE, opening them in Linux, and then saving them as templates or taking exis...

Re: Scrivener 1 for Linux?

@Dropcap--Oh, I definitely appreciate you saying something; I just wanted to reassure you that it wouldn't eat your babies or drink all your beer or kick your dog or anything if you installed it that way. ;-) And yeah, Lee and company have been great about providing solid binaries, but I'm still fee...

Re: Scrivener 1 for Linux?

@Garrison--There's been talk of doing some kind of universal (or semi-universal) installer, and I've also asked about doing a PPA. It's up in the air at this point, but I can definitely think of worse ways to go than a .tgz with an install script. (My personal preference would be a PPA, but that's b...

Re: All templates blank, and no images in 1.0.1 Linux

Thanks. I've got old projects I could use, but this'll be much, much cleaner. And yeah, I'm kind of stumped on this. Haven't tried 10.04, but I'm seeing both bugs in both 11.04 and 11.10. I've been poking at this off an on for a while, but I think I've hit the point of diminishing returns. I think i...

All templates blank, and no images in Scrivener 1.0.1

Ubuntu 11.04 Natty and 11.10 Oneiric, both 64-bit Running Unity on Oneiric and Gnome 2 EDIT: pngs work, but no other image type does. And I can't import templates, but I can create new ones from existing projects. With a fresh install of 1.0.1 for Linux (and yes, I know I built the deb) after a tota...

Rob, there's a tiny error in your instructions. The Debian/Ubuntu package installation should read

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture scrivener_1.0.1_beta.deb

Fixed. Thanks.

Re: Images broken on Linux Scrivener 1.0.1?

After installing the Linux beta 1.0.1 (On Ubuntu 10.04, 64-bit) I find that images in my Scrivener projects no longer display. Anyone seeing this? When I add an image I get a "link page," which brings up the image in an external image browser when clicked... er, usually. Sometimes when I ...

.deb uploaded to Lee!

Sorry for the double-post, but I just sent the Linux 1.0.1 deb to Lee. Get it at http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=13851 It installed without a hitch on my 64-bit Natty running Gnome 2 (using the 64-bit installation instructions below). Haven't had a chance to test it ...

Re: Scrivener 1 for Linux?

Thank you Lee and Rob for your hard work in producing the Linux version, I really appreciate your effort. Thanks for that, but to clarify and make sure the credit goes where it's due, Lee is the one who does all of the actual work on this. My contribution pretty much consists of shuffling around th...

Re: Scrivener 1 for Linux?

Lee and I are exchanging files and working on the Linux version even as I type this. Ran into an unexpected snag on my end, because I'm lame like that. EDIT: It's after three am where I am, so I may have to close my eyes for a few hours soon and hit this again after sunup. The good news is that in t...

Re: Scrivener 1 for Linux?

I'd love to see Scrivener on Linux thrive, but the likelihood falls sharply once Linux users begin to feel they aren't taken seriously. Disclaimer: I'm not staff. My involvement with the project consists of using all three main versions, slapping together .deb packages from the tarballs that Lee pr...

Re: Regretting installing Ubuntu 11.10

LD_LIBRARY_PATH is set in the launch script,but something there doesn't look right to me. First, shouldn't there be quotation marks, and is that space supposed to be there after the colon? If someone else could take a look at that, it'd rock. (And remember, I'm not a "real" developer, just...

Re: Regretting installing Ubuntu 11.10

I don't think it's a KDE problem so much as a shared library configuration problem. I"m using KDE, and I haven't had an issue. I'm almost always launching it via command line, however. Yeah, but you're a technomancer. You wave your hand at computers and they sit up and beg for you. ;-) Serious...
