Just wanted to let you know how well Scrivener is running. I am using Linux Mint 12, which is based on Ubuntu 11.10. The DEB install gave no problems, Scrivener started up without issues, and I’ve been working with it without issues.
Oh, except for the missing templates, that is. That bug just won’t go away, eh?
I followed the work-around in a different forum: installing the Windows version in WINE, creating a blank project based off the template I wanted, saving the project, opening it in the Linux version, and then doing a Save As Template. I dunno what icon is missing, but I don’t actually care about the icon, so everything shakes out fine in the end.
Anyway, I love it!!! I think you’re leaving money on the table by not pushing out Linux release versions. I know I’ll gladly pay for a non-expiring license. I am a happy hopefully-future customer.
