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.

Running this version of Scrivener in Linux Mint on 18.3, the program is running but not loading files and settings. Anyone else having problems?

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?
