I made a shell script for compiling Wine from source, downloading and installing Scrivener, and creating a GNOME desktop shortcut. Link to script as a gist on Github: https://gist.github.com/janbrogger/cc1807fc0308e6270bad5d4deda46cb7


This gives you a freshly compiled 64-bit Wine 4.0.1 with 32-bit support, an installed .Net Framework 4.5, with a GNOME desktop shortcut.

I'm on CentOS which had poor Wine support from repositories, so had to compile Wine from source. Wasn't too difficult.

Your mileage may vary. The script doesn't have much error checking yet. I used these links: https://www.systutorials.com/239913/install-32-bit-wine-1-8-centos-7/
