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 10.04, 11.04, 11.10, 32-bit and 64-bit
aptosid(Debian),
Slackware
Arch-64

Also, if you like, what's your desktop environment (Gnome, KDE, xfce, Fluxbox, etc.)?

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

Ubuntu 11.04 amd64. Window manager: E17.

Finally doing work in Scrivener again after giving OS X (and Macs) the boot a year or so ago, and it feels great.

Install was pretty straightforward:

sudo tar zxf Scrivener-029-Package.tgz -C/usr/local
sudo ln -s ~/bin/kindlegen /usr/local/LiteratureAndLatte/bin/docformats/

...and creating ~/.local/share/applications/Scrivener.desktop (NOTE: this really should be included with the distro).

Looks like Scriv no longer needs a shell script wrapper in order to find its .so's -- a welcome change.

I'm using "scrivener latest-1" from AUR on Arch-64 with Xfce.

I need styles to be working to really use it, though.

Mandriva and Arch. Frustratingly, I get errors relating to conflicting Qt libraries when I try to run Scrivener under KDE4 in these distros, though. Kubuntu doesn't have that problem (I installed it just to test that!).
