First I’ve tried to install Scrivener with gdebi-gtk from a lokal *.deb-file. I got several errors about gdebi-gtk itself as I started it from the terminal like it was told in the Installing-Thread.
My command was: sudo gdebi-gtk scrivener-126.96.36.199-beta.deb.
The terminal found a UnicodeDecodeError: ‘utf-8’ codec can’t decode byte 0x92 in position 579: invalid start byte. This happens at ’ File " /usr/share/gdebi/GDebi/DebPackage.py", line 39, in getitem return self.sections[item]
Scrivener works fine on my old Netbook, after i used the Software-Center to install it from the local .deb. The only trap to look up was to ignore the warning, that the deb should be a package of worse quality.
