Regarding the launcher: for some reason, installing the deb (even with the forced architecture thing going) doesn't give me a functioning Scrivener. Thus, I have to untar everything and move it manually, per the wiki instructions. That works fine, except then I have to make myself a new launcher, which was easy in Gnome 2 and Unity, but not so much in Gnome Shell

Aside from that little peccadillo the manual install worked fine, until this morning. A lot of updates came through on Ubuntu 11.10, and now my Scrivener won't work. Ratzenkinder.

Y'know, I'd happily pay my money up-front now just to have one version of the app without planned obsolescence.

EDIT: Is there any planned end to the betas, or am I just stuck in writer software purgatory, endlessly pushing tarballs up a Sisyphusian slope?

Will try this later today. Are you on 64 or 32-bit?
