Rob Hamm has kindly worked to the very early hours of the morning and built a deb package for Linux available here:

http://www.literatureandlatte.com/scrivenerforlinux/scrivener_1.0.1_beta.deb

My apologies for the late delivery on this, it's entirely my fault and I will make every effort to ensure that this does not happen again.

Sorry to be contrary, but is there a link to a non-deb tarball?

Thank you very much. I will buy a copy of the linux version whenever it is available. I've begun writing my first novel with Scrivener. It has proved very useful.

Hmm... Kubuntu 11.04 32 bit with all current updates. I installed it and ran it, and nothing happened. I don't even see it in the System Activity list. I ran it in a 11.10 VM, and it worked correctly. I might just do the 11.10 update on my netbook, and see what happens.

Sorry for a double post, I would rather do that than have my update missed...

I'm stupid. I didn't wait long enough. Scrivener just popped up. So, the slowness is still there on startup, but I can live with that. Thanks for the 1.0 update!

For the non-deb people, who, like me, still haven't had their coffee yet:

Extract the deb like you would any other tarball. The files you need are in scrivener_1.0.1_beta/usr/share/LiteratureAndLatte

Hello there.
This is my first install of Scrivener for Linux. I'm currently running Ubuntu 11.10, and the .deb file installed beautifully.
I watched a few tutorial videos and played around with the application, but after beginning a new project for the fourth time (to try a different template), I had a problem: the font color for the binder and file panels are almost white, while the background is a light grey. I did fix part of this issue by changing the font color on the file panel, but the binder panel's colors are way to similar and it's extremely difficult to read. Also, the blinking bar and the selected text appear white, rendering them useless.
Has this happened to anybody else? Is it fixable?

Anyway, I also wanted to thank the people responsible for making this amazing software, and the people bringing it to Linux. Although I've never done serious work with it, it looks amazing.

Cheers.

Sorry for double posting, but I've fixed it. A quick visit to Tools/Options/Appearance and I reset all colors to default. Amazing. Sorry for my stupidity.

Hi, thanks for all the hard work, I have installed and works fine, but I have a couple of questions:
1) Will my work still be retained after expiry in march, when I have to update? I'm 99% sure it will :D
2) Will there be a more official version so updates are not needed? I'd pay. What is L&L's take on this?

I still had my save files after upgrading to this version so I think the files will probably still be there.

Also, I hope nobody minds me doing this, but I've just taught myself to make RPM packages for Redhat based systems and just made one from the contents of this DEB file:

scrivener-1.0.1-2.i386.rpm

Feel free to check/use it. It's only the third RPM I've made so far so there's a possibility that I did it wrong, but it seems OK so far on my own laptop. Hopefully it will save anyone else from having to spend 6+ hours working out how to install a DEB file in OpenSuse.

Thanks so much for this...aside from the blank text reset issue it seems to work perfectly (on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS - 64bit). Scrivener is revolutionising my writing process.

Hello,
I'm new here and start with Scrivener on a Linux (Ubuntu10.04 32bit) System.
On my PC, it works well.

My Girlfriend would also start with Scrivener, but with Ubuntu 10.04 64bit !

That is not possible to install. "Wrong Systemversion".

Is there any Version for 64bit Ubuntu avaiable?

We are not so familiar with "Make" and so on...sorry.

@hamish
How do you have install it on a 64bit Ubuntu?
