I have used it under WINE. It should work fine with a modern (read: 1.7 and above) version of it. With WINE you're better off using the most current version because the devs are constantly fixing things and other regressions. (Most distro packages are horribly out of date. WINE is super-easy to compile yourself. If you've run it in the past, odds are good you've got all the dependencies for it. Your mileage may vary because some distros are stupid in that regard.)

Frankly, though, I haven't needed any of the 1.8 features. I'd love Scapple integration with the Linux version, but that would require a Scapple port. :)

Anyone have any suggestion as to why spell checking might not work under Fedora? On my other machine (running xubuntu), it works fine, and aspell is installed and spellchecking works in LibraOffice.

Thanks.

do you have libaspell-dev installed? I think that's the one I always miss.

I'm using Scrivener 1.7.2.3 beta 32 bit with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on a Toshiba Satellite laptop. Everything is working great. Very happy with OS and Scrivener.
