i tried install scrivener via ‘gdebi scrivener-126.96.36.199-beta.deb’ on both ubuntu 11.04 (running inside parallels desktop on a mac with an intel core i7 x86 chip) and on raspbian (a raspberry pi with an ARM chip running raspberry’s custom debian flavor)
both systems give me the same error:
This package is uninstallable
Wrong architecture ‘i386’
is there any way i (a linux semi-newbie) can make this work?
It will NOT work on an ARM chip-based computer.
In Ubuntu, you have to force it to install on a 64-bit system with the following command:
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture ./scrivener-*.deb
Hopefully it won’t give you any other errors, you may have to do one or two more steps. Try that first.
Is it possible that you are running a 64 bit system and therefore it objects to the 32 bit code? If so you might try following various tips in this thread:
Hope that helps.
All the best,
PS That is regarding your mac. As already mentioned it won’t work on an ARM based Raspberry Pi.
