Which Linux distro do you use for Scrivener?

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.)?

Slackware, KDE.

Ubuntu, xfce

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.

Kubuntu Oneric.

OpenSuse 11.4 / KDE

debian (sid)


Good find!

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)
