Re: x64 version?

amorgan@whirlwind:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i --foreign-architecture i386 scrivener_0.2.4_i386.deb dpkg: unknown option --foreign-architecture Interesting, "foreign-architecture" is supported here. I wonder if it is a version thing: $ dpkg --version Debian `dpkg' package management program ...

Re: Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

I'm currently using Ubuntu 11.04 (32-bit desktop and 64-bit laptop), with either Unity, Unity2d, or fluxbox.

Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

I'm curious to know who's using what OS version(s) for Scrivener. So, to that end, I'm starting an informal Linux Census: What version or distro of Linux are you running Scrivener on? (Or, if relevant, which distro do you plan to use?) I've seen several versions in the forums threads already: Ubuntu...

Re: Scrivener b29 tarfile available

Awesome. Thanks. Here are the installation steps I took on Ubuntu 11.04 32-bit to get up and running: Download the .tgz file (this is a gzipped tarfile). Go to the download directory, then tar xvfz Scrivener-029-Package.tgz sudo mv LiteratureAndLatte/ /usr/local/ sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/Literature...

Re: Late to the game

I've finished installing it all (Wine and Windows Scrivener), and it seems to actually run OK. Fonts in the menus and the binder navigation area are still horrible-looking. [...] On my screen, the fonts are all different sizes and quality mixed and matched all over the interface. In some places the...

Re: Late to the game

I installed the latest wine.. it's hideous. The fonts look like a dot-matrix printer on my screen. [...] windows [...] it ... it burns! Hmm. On the distro I'm using for desktop, to kill everything wine installs, just delete the .wine directory. No real mess. Scrivener under wine looks fine to me, t...

Re: Late to the game

I use wine all the time for Scrivener, Steam (and half a dozen games under that [....] The native dll's aren't needed anymore. When I installed Scrivener on my laptop, I forgot to copy them over, and Scrivener installed and works just fine. You'll need winetricks and the things listed in the wiki, ...

Re: [Error] Name Generator not found

You should also be able to grab the files you need from a WINE-based install on Linux. It seems the only one you need is called 'alias', and it's identified by Linux as a SQLite 3.x database. This worked for me on 029 (data from Windows 029 install to Linux 029): sudo mkdir -p /usr/local/LiteratureA...

Re: [Error] Name Generator not found

I'm actually not used to having the name generator work. I recall some instructions (from the wiki, perhaps, and possibly out of date) on copying over some data files from the windows version. But if you had this working earlier, there might be a more simple fix. How did you install (or how are you ...

Unfortunately, I'm seeing this with 026, too.

Re: font troubles

I was definitely having font issues with version 025. I haven't had a chance to test the latest (026) yet, but I'm hoping too do so in the next day or two.

Re: 024 deb?

I tried installing it as a tar wotsit a while ago and never got that to work so deleted all the files that were zipped up in there. And then these 2 later versions.

Re: Running Scrivener on Linux

But typing in 'scrivener-beta' in terminal gives me a "command not found". Has the command changed? Is the command directory dependent? / Depending on how you installed it, yes, it can be directory dependent. One method for finding the needle-in-the-haystack, if you have no idea where the...
