Re: 17th MAY - BETA 024 RELEASED FOR LINUX

I tried two different deb packages. I downloaded from sources linked to from elsewhere on this forum, and tried installing both through the Software Center and CLI (dpkg). Neither one successfully installed. I had no problem with the .deb on an a fresh 11.04/32-bit installation, so I'm not sure whe...

Re: 024 deb?

I've tried installing both Rob Hamm's and J G Starsoupsky's deb packages, and each time I've tried to create a new file Scrivener has shut down and this error message has appeared in the termina [...] Do you have any previous versions installed (wine or native version)? How are you launching the Sc...

Re: 024 deb?

@docaltmed

Which .deb version are you seeing that error on? What was the exact command you typed?

Re: 024 deb?

@RobHamm -- Thanks for the details -- I think those are very helpful for anyone who is trying to use a .deb. I really would like to dig into some of this, but time is short at the moment. I'm hoping I can test some of these things on a clean VM install. I have spell check working on my Ubuntu 11.04 ...

Re: [BUG] Fullscreen Mode and Scrivener Reboot

I can confirm that the same thing happens for me (triggered with F11) with the current version (0.2.4).
In addition to resetting preferences to Defaults, I can also load a saved preferences file to have my text re-appear.

Re: Thesis student feedback

[...] switching to dropbox. Question... although I should search the forums as well... do you work directly from your dropbox file, or copy the file to dropbox every day? An oldish thread, but worth commenting on, I think. I'm using a project directory under the Dropbox folder as my working directo...

Good to hear. Out of curiosity, what platform are you running (Debian/'buntu version, and 32 or 64-bit)?

Re: 024 deb?

The .deb I made (based off of cwoac's template) was posted a little earlier in the thread with a megaupload link.

Anyone is welcome to try a direct download as well now (scrivener_0.2.4_i386.deb) :

Re: 024 deb?

You could try the version I posted as well -- worked for me with *dpkg -i* anyway, on 10.10 and 11.04.

I installed on 11.04 64-bit with

Code: Select all

 sudo dpkg -i --foreign-architecture i386 filename.deb

Re: x64 version?

I was able to use my 32-bit .deb on a 64-bit system by using :

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i --foreign-architecture i386 scrivener-deb.deb

Re: 024 deb?

How is "rm -rf /usr/bin/LiteratureAndLatte" not uninstalling? It's not package/product agnostic, and it's not necessarily a clean uninstall. If you're already using a VCS on your entire filesystem, this won't be an issue. Etc, etc. I'm glad it works well for you. Some people want rpms, de...

Re: 024 deb?

Sure, one does not literally need a .deb, but some people like them. So they can install when drunk and being attacked by thieves. Clickety-click, or at least a minimum of typing. This assumes someone does the work in setting up a .deb of course. In general, packages are useful for when you want to ...

Re: 024 deb?

Perhaps we need a wiki on creating the deb packages (unless there's already one that I've missed)? That way we could aggregate the combined wisdom of our generous deb builders. I'd be happy to get involved -- I have several Ubuntu boxes, though no Debian system at the moment.

Okay gang, you may have seen this in the Linux forum already, but Lee's uploaded Linux Beta 024; you can download it from the Scrivener for Windows page. New expiration date is June 30. Hooray! Thanks. EDIT: Oops -- is it just me, or is anyone else seeing a 404 error on an attempted download? EDIT#...
