Problems getting scrivener beta running

I'm trying to get Scrivener beta running, but am failing miserably.  I installed from the tarball on the Scrivener website and now get the following error every time I try and run it:

./Scrivener: error while loading shared libraries: libgstapp-0.10.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I'm running a 64 bit machine and the lib is in /usr/lib, although I assumed I might need a 32bit version, so I installed lib32-gstreamer.  This does not, however, seem to have given me a libgstapp-0.10.so.0 in /usr/lib32 - is there a 32 bit package that would provide it?  Would that solve my problem?

Why not from AUR?

Re: Problems getting scrivener beta running

Initially because it was out of date - although I did tweak the PKGBUILD and install the latest beta that way. I didn't stick with it for two reasons:

1) because it was installed to /usr/share/scrivener & I'd rather it went in /opt

2) because it still gave me the same error and uninstalling it and moving to the tarball was one thing I did while thrashing around trying to figure out the problem.

Re: Problems getting scrivener beta running

No actual ideas, but you might want to wait till the 1.2 beta for Linux is released. The current 1.1's license expires on the 31st of July anyway.
So you might want to spare yourself the trouble and wait for the (sure to be) new trouble in a few weeks time wink

Yeah - perhaps that's not a bad thought - although I would imagine the same issue will be present.  Plus a few others!

Re: Problems getting scrivener beta running

The missing file is in lib32-gstreamer0.10-base. 

There's a few other issues I've had with running it on my 64 bit system. I made a lib32-aspell package that is posted on the forums and linked on the aur page. It needed a bit of tweaking before I uploaded to aur, which finishing my thesis and moving across the country afterwards has delayed. I get Internet that's not my phone Tuesday, and will hopefully get around to tweaking soon after.

There also seems to be an issue with how it deals with media files, which unfortunately also keeps the snapshot from working since it's supposed plays a sound effect and instead crashes. I've posted on the scrivener forums, but not gotten much feedback. Still hope it might be fixed in the next version. If not hope another 64 bit user could confirm the issue over there.

That worked - up & running! lib32-gstreamer0.10-base has a *lot* of deps!
