To list all the installed scrivener files run this command

to look just for scrivener.sh run this command

updatedb
locate scrivener.sh

Looks like you have Mint 64 bit distro?
You can see from the listing that /usr/share/scrivener/bin/scrivener.sh is installed .. although you report an error ..

Comparing with my (32 bit ubuntu 12.04) setup you have three library files missing in /usr/share/scrivener/lib ..

libQtDBus.so.4
libQtDBus.so.4.8
libQtDBus.so.4.8.0

I've attached these below in libQtDBus.tar for you to unpack and drop into /usr/share/scrivener/lib folder. This avoids the Qt compatibility issues although you don't report this error.

[note: these files work for ubuntu-12.04 32 bit LTS but you may need the file versions for your linux distro so be prepared to remove them if experiment doesn't work]

I would also try taking ownership of the scrivener installation by running this command ...

sudo chown -R bryant:bryant /usr/share/scrivener/

Sucessfully (I thought) installed the Linux 1.5.3.1 beta release on 32bit Ubuntu 12.04 via .deb package. Scrivener opens fine, most things work fine, BUT, when I try and take a snapshot the software immediately closes. When I try and open audio file (in the tutorial) the software also immediately closes.

I'd rather not run via wine.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I do remember some time ago Scrivener closing when I tried taking snapshots during tests.
I've just tried again .. in Ubuntu 12.04 32 bit .. and I see I can take document snapshots.

I've been trying to use Scrivener for several days now (see my message above) and it seems full of bugs - it shuts instantly if I try and import media, look at media files in the tutorial etc. This makes it pretty much unworkable. I've performed all the Ubuntu 12.04 updates, restarted the computer, checked for Scrivener updates etc. and it still doesn't work.

Anyone got any other suggestions/ Am I better using an older version of Scrivener? Or reverting back to Ubuntu 11 (I've been thinking about doing this anyway). I could always install via Wine but I'd rather not...

Thanks

Update.
As people have previously had issues with the qtlib files and Scrivener I uninstalled Scrivener (sudo apt-get remove scrivener and sudo apt-get autoremove). I think unpacked the .deb scrivener file to a temporary drive (using these instructions: https://geekwentfreak-raviteja.rhcloud. ... b-package/) and did the same with the qt 4.8.0 library files. I then copied the three 4.8.0 library files into the scrivener lib folder and repackaged it to a deb file using the link above. I then installed the scrivener file. At every possible step I restarted the computer...just incase this helped with anything. Still no luck.

have you run the command suggested earlier
ls -R /usr/share/scrivener

can you post the results from terminal output?

You should not need to repackage the *.deb package. The three Qt files can be simply copied into scrivener/lib (ensure that the files have the correct permissions for Scrivener to run).

All your installed files tally exactly with my installed files. No missing files seen.
But there could still be some Ubuntu dependencies.

Try now taking local user ownership of the scrivener installation folder (some files may have different permissions)

sudo chown -R <yourubuntuusername>:<yourubuntuusername> /usr/share/scrivener

e.g. sudo chown -R emma:emma /usr/share/scrivener

Well, I can now take snapshots. But still no joy with importing files. Infact the last time I tried it crashed as soon as I clicked on 'import file'. I've been thinking about switching away from Ubuntu anyway (for reasons not related to Scrivener) - perhaps I will have to wait until I have a new distro installed. Are people having success with Fubunutu or Mint?

As I get the same error as MinotaurV I would like to ask whether you solved your problem?

Advice from Kona solved my problem: viewtopic.php?f=33&t=20489#p144753

Packager, you just need to make ia32-libs a requirement. Otherwise, most of the users, who are on 64 bit systems, would have to go through this ordeal, or fail to install. Given that this package has been out for a while, and it's still broken on 64 bit, I'd seek professional help on packaging.

(Solved for me; good luck)

Hey LAP,

Thanks for all your work! I just got my new Samsung ARM Chromebook set up with ChrUbuntu. Does the 1.5.3.1 Beta support the ARM-based Chromebooks?

Thanks again!
