Installation on Ubuntu 14.04 final beta

Hi there,

I just installed the current Scrivener beta on Ubuntu 14.04 final beta (64 bit). Since I had to fiddle around a little bit before I got it running I thought I could save someone else a couple of Google searches:

The downloadable deb file can be installed with dpkg or the Software Center (Just ignore the warning about the malformed deb file), but when I tried running Scrivener I got an error about a missing library . It used to be that you could fix this kind of problems by installing ia32-libs, but starting with 13.10 this has changed. I was successful with

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

sudo apt-get install libgstreamer-plugins-base0.10-0:i386

This worked for me and I hope it saves someone else some work. The usual disclaimer: if you try this and this breaks your installation, you get my deepest sympathy. You also get to keep all the pieces, but nothing else.

Best regards

Thanks Gadgeteer. Possibly most solutions that apply to 13.10 also apply to 14.04!
