Thanks for making this, but I cannot get it to work. I am still getting the "library too short" error.
I must be doing something wrong.

Thats an odd error, can you paste the command you are trying and the full error message?
also, which distro/version?

Thanks for the reply. I installed it, then went to the terminal and typed Scrivener, and this came up:
/usr/share/LiteratureAndLatte/bin/Scrivener: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/local/LiteratureAndLatte/lib/libQtWebKit.so.4: file too short

The distro is Ubuntu 10.04

Theres your problem, you have some files from an old install hanging around in /usr/local, which its trying to load. the libraries it should be loading are in /usr/share/Literature... not /usr/local.

try sudo rm -r /usr/local/LiteratureAndLatte then re-running.
also, what does
which Scrivener
give?

Many thanks for creating this. I installed scrivener_0.2.3_i386.deb in Ubuntu 10.04 using gdebi and it works very well.

I'm getting a weird error.. Scrivener opens just fine, doesn't print any error messages to the terminal. But the editor just shows a gray screen. I've attached a screenshot. I've installed 0.23 using the .deb from cwoac. It also did this same thing when I installed "by hand" from the source.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04

ETA: It was just the font colors. Changing the color preferences fixed it.

EDIT: Here's the .deb that I put together for 2.3 that installs and works on my system.
http://robhamm.com/temp/scrivener-beta_2.3_all.deb
Nothing fancy, but it installs and runs. Any idea why the other one wouldn't work for me on 64-bit?

Hm... On Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit I get a wrong architecture error when trying to install via gdebi or software center. Is there a separate deb for 64-bit this time around and I just missed it? If not, I'll just unpack the tarball and make a universal deb.

Yeah, my bad. The scripts which setup the basic dir assume you are building for the running architecture. you could have installed with --ignore-architecture (I think that that is the option).

Quick random update. I investigated making a proper .deb that doesn't use the static libraries, but the system ones instead. No dice - complains about missing symbols, so they are compiling in something non-standard into the libs (or using a feature not in the debian 6 versions).
