I’m curious to know who’s using what OS version(s) for Scrivener.
So, to that end, I’m starting an informal Linux Census:
What version or distro of Linux are you running Scrivener on? (Or, if relevant, which distro do you plan to use?)
I’ve seen several versions in the forums threads already:
Ubuntu 10.04, 11.04, 11.10, 32-bit and 64-bit
Also, if you like, what’s your desktop environment (Gnome, KDE, xfce, Fluxbox, etc.)?
Ubuntu 10.04 with the last best Gnome. 8)
I’m currently using Ubuntu 11.04 (32-bit desktop and 64-bit laptop), with either Unity, Unity2d, or fluxbox.
Ubuntu 32-bit and 64-bit, 11.04. Using both Unity and KDE 4.6.
Ubuntu 11.04, 32 bits, with Unity and Unity 2D.
Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit with Gnome 2 (and Compiz 8.6)
Ubuntu 11.04 amd64. Window manager: E17.
Finally doing work in Scrivener again after giving OS X (and Macs) the boot a year or so ago, and it feels great.
Install was pretty straightforward:
sudo tar zxf Scrivener-029-Package.tgz -C/usr/local
sudo ln -s ~/bin/kindlegen /usr/local/LiteratureAndLatte/bin/docformats/
…and creating ~/.local/share/applications/Scrivener.desktop (NOTE: this really should be included with the distro).
Looks like Scriv no longer needs a shell script wrapper in order to find its .so’s – a welcome change.
I’m using “scrivener latest-1” from AUR on Arch-64 with Xfce.
I need styles to be working to really use it, though.
Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit, Gnome 2.32.1
Debian 6.0.3 64 bit Gnome 2.30.2
Mandriva and Arch. Frustratingly, I get errors relating to conflicting Qt libraries when I try to run Scrivener under KDE4 in these distros, though. Kubuntu doesn’t have that problem (I installed it just to test that!).
Gentoo (64-bit) with the Gnome v2.32 window manager.
As for me, I’m still with aptosid, but instead of xfce, now I’m using a tilling manager, scrotwm. Not a bug, but a funny thing, full screen opens in a new window/area.
Just installed it on Chakra linux, from the community repository (CCR)
