Hiya

David Gewirtz in his ZDnet article, 2014: The year Microsoft lost my loyalty (http://www.zdnet.com/topic/the-years-best-tech-for-work-and-play/) mentioned that he no longer uses Microsoft's Word; for his academic writing he uses Scrivener. There are betas for Linux at http://www.literatureandlatte.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=28280. Scrivener soumds interesting and I'd like to play with it. Would anyone be interested in creating a pet of it?

When installed in Slacko-5.7.0-PAE using the deb file...
Run in a terminal I get:
Code:
# scrivener
/usr/share/scrivener/bin/Scrivener: error while loading shared libraries: libgstapp-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

That's good to hear Very Happy . I actually downloaded the deb rather that let petget install it because I thought it would work only with an ubuntu based distro like lupu. Note Sylvander install failure with Slacko-5.7 a couple posts after yours. Are debs and slackware incompatible?

he may just need to install libgstapp-0.10.so.0; either a .deb or an .rpm should work.

OK....
Installed within Slacko-5.7.0-PAE: gstreamer using the PPM, then installed the scrivener-1.7.2.3-i386.deb file using the link above, and...

It appears to work just fine. Very Happy
Saved the session changes, and rebooted, and [it's still installed, and] it still works.

Howto move the menu entry from Utility to Document?
Tried editing the /usr/share/applications/Scrivener.desktop file...
Changed:
Categories=Utility
To...
Categories=Document
[Then "Save", and shut down the document]
And...
Menu->Shutdown->Rebuild Menu
But it only removed the Utility entry without creating the Document entry.
Perhaps I did it wrong?
