Woohoo! Doesn't seem to be any problems so far with it. Is this the one with the full MMD integration? If memory serves, the old Linux version didn't have the MMD support that the windows one did.

This is unbelievable!
Just on question... any chance to have a PPA for Ubuntu?

Thank you very much!

I might be wrong, but I don't think this can be a ppa because launchpad requires projects to be FOSS based development.

Very cool to see this released, though!

Works on my Eee PC running Ubuntu 12.04. Doesn't show up in Ubuntu Software Center though, even though it installed it.

Thank you. Works smoothly on 32bit Linux Mint 12 (and Eee PC). Installation took all 30 seconds :D

However, the font rendering is a bit weird (different from before, is there a way to change it? Or well, I'll get used to it I suppose) and I lost my Finnish spellcheking. Nothing serious tough, love your work.

Thank you!
Two different expiry dates, with a medium term release, is a great idea!
Scratchpad still doesn't work, however I don't use it.
Thank you again

Thanks guys, you're freakin' heroes. Working fine on 64bit Lucid.

magicfingers, was the previous beta working for you, and did you install using the --force-architecture argument?

Thanks for asking! Yup, no problems up to this point, and yup, you can't exactly install it without --force- architecture. The "rename rtfi" workaround works for me in Lucid, so I'm a happier camper at this point.

Cheers!

Success from openSUSE 12.1 x64 after installing all the required 32 bit versions of all libraries.

Tip: Run Scrivener from a terminal to see any error messages and then use Yast2 or zipper or System Settings -> Software Management to install anything that is missing.

... how did you get the spell checker to work on 64 bit Lucid?

Whenever I try to install the 32 bit aspell libraries, Lucid wants to remove roughly 80% of my desktop.

I've tried installing on Ubuntu. Scrivener opened with error notices (the RTF reader failing) and now does not show my text anymore. :?
I have to admit I'm new to Linux, so I probably did something wrong.
Just used the terminal to install the deb, nothing else. (Scrivener worked fine before this update)

(I'm running 32bit Ubuntu 12.04)
