There probably IS a way. However, it's probably a lot more work than it's worth. Scrivener's format is not trivial, even though it is comprised of simple elements, and there are likely a lot of edge cases that will bite script writers in the proverbial buttcheeks.

But the request isn't for 3.x to 1.9.7, it's for 3.x to 1.9.01, which is a whole new level of complication.

Yeah, I realize that, now. I was mistakenly thinking that Linux Scrivener used the same file format as Windows 1.X, which changed. So even a "save as 1.9" option in Scrivener 3 wouldn't help much.

Well - fixed it myself in the end. I must have changed a file association some where, the fix was to hit F12 and click the reset button in the options to panel, all files are now opening up as before.

RESULT!!!

For anyone who wants to run this on Ubuntu 18.04, unfortunately the dependencies libpng12 and gstreamer-0.10 are not in the repositories anymore. You can either compile them yourself or install from these sources:

Code: Select all

wget http://mirrors.kernel.org/ubuntu/pool/main/libp/libpng/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb

wget http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/gst-plugins-base0.10/libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0_0.10.36-1_amd64.deb
wget http://fr.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/g/gstreamer0.10/libgstreamer0.10-0_0.10.36-1.5ubuntu1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libgstreamer*.deb

I'm using Ubuntu 18.04 and when I am writing a screenplay the font keeps switching on me every time I press enter. Is this a setting? I select all and choose Courier New but then it always switches back to Dejavu Sans Mono when I hit enter. Anyone else having this issue?

Thanks for this tip. I'm trying out Linux Mint 19, which is based on Ubuntu 18.04, and found this worked for me with no difficulty.

Have used Scrivener on and off for Windows for a long time, but just come across this version. Thanks for all the hard work, I mainly work on linux at work now and this is going to save me so much time!

This version is working on my Pixelbook, without Crouton. Needed to track down a few libraries, but is loading great, and syncing to Google Drive via command line.

So I have Parrot Sec OS installed on my computer and I downloaded the 1.9 release, and for some reason, i can't seem to get it to work. I ran the .deb. and even downloaded the tar file for the 64-bit and the 32-bit, but i'm getting no results. Is there a way to run this program?

Hi everybody,

I've tried Scrivener last year to make my lesson plans and liked it very much. It fitted in well for my uses as a biology teacher. I am a Debian user and along with learning to use the program, I had a need to make a DEB package to Debian 9 (Stretch), where I fixed some small quirk things regarding to a smooth installation and instant usage of the program without further adjustments. It might work in any distribution derived from Debian (Ubuntu, Mint, etc).

Here is the package for you to use and inspect: <<Download>> (hosted at Gdrive)

This package is tweaked from the original 1.9.0.1 and 1.7.2.4 version of Scrivener for linux. I also moved the Scrivener directory to $/opt . The paths and desktop integration were adjusted and the dependencies are included in a separated archive, as it is fairly old and are no more present on updated distros.

I observe that, as the original configuration file can be generated with some proprietary fonts listed, to the "IndexCard" and "Appearance" (for instance), this package comes with a 'Scrivener.conf' and 'scrivener.prefs' files pre-made and adjusted to set metric equivalent quality free fonts (under open source licenses). So these files will be in the directory $HOME/Scrivener/Backup --and these fonts is installed to the path $/usr/share/fonts/truetype/fonts-scrivener.

See below the substitutions (from-->to):

[*] Arial --> Liberation Sans
[*] Sans Serif (Microsoft) --> Asap
[*] Courier New --> Nimbus Mono

Hope you enjoy it! I made it for personal needs and decided to share here in case anyone may want to give it a try.

Obs.: If the moderators find my post out of bounds in any aspect, please advise.

EDITs:

Code: Select all

1 - changed the hosting to GDrive, so anyone can download directly
2 - download link updated

@Alexo:
Well, your contribution is a day on the board, so the admins should have seen it and had the chance to react...
Maybe your deb-file is a fine solution for Linux, for shure it looks interessing. But - it must be possible to try out. I cant't download it "normal" from 4share and I won't give them my eMail-adress, direct or indirect. Is it possible for you to give another location for download?
