  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    I’m running Logos in an Ubuntu 18.04 container on my Pixelbook and the fonts render fine. Perhaps ChromeOS have fonts figured out.

    [quote user="Gene W."] Hi Daniel, thank you for your work on this. I followed the steps and everything looks like it installed correctly, but when I try to launch Logos I get target not found: /home/u/Desktop/Logos.sh. I do see the Logos.sh in Desktop. Is there a different way I should launch this that I'm missing? Running Manjaro Gnome [/quote] Daniel

    Daniel, From a command prompt in a terminal, run ./logos.sh That's what I have to do in Ubuntu because the launch icon doesn't work.

    I have a 2017 Pixelbook. I am running the Logos desktop app in a Linux container and also use the web app. The web app works perfectly fine on my Pixelbook. It is faster than Logos running in the Linux container. I wouldn't recommend a Chromebook to run the Logos desktop app in a Linux container currently unless you are willing to invest time to make

    I got it running, finally. Thanks for everyone's patience with me. But, the Debian container runs slower than the Ubuntu container, so it's back to that one for me.

    Nick, Duh! Thank you. But, where is the .msi stored? I can't find it. Was it installed with dot.net or winehq-staging? Do I have to manually get it from the Faithlife website?

    Following Nick's instructions went OK until I installed dot.net. It looked like it didn't complete after a very long time but when I exited out and reran the command to install it, it said it was installed. Then, when I tried to install the Logos msi it didn't seem to do anything. It was very quick. Here's what I got: WINEPREFIX=$HOME/wine-logos8/ msiexec

    Adam, Thanks for your comments. I'd help if I had packaging skills, but sadly I do not. I am a willing tester, though. The reason I asked about Debian is that Chromebooks by default use Debian containers. You can use other distributions like Ubuntu, but I think the average, non-technical user wouldn't want to go through all of the extra steps to set

    I dropped it from my shell script and it loads my layout! That's progress! I would love for the launcher to work, though. Another question: What is involved in trying to get Logos installed within a Debian Stretch or Buster container as compared with the Ubuntu Bionic container I am running now? On Chromebooks, a Debian Stretch container is the default

    I thought that I'd give an update on the experience of using Logos on my Chromebook Pixelbook. I installed it within an Ubuntu Bionic container using the Chromebook's Linux feature and in crouton, which is an Ubuntu Bionic chroot environment running side by side ChromeOS. Previously posts in this thread have Google Docs explaining how to set up these

    Is it normal behavior for Logos on startup to open with a blank screen and no layouts? If I go to settings and tell Logos to open the last layout, it doesn't work.

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    The second way to install Logos on a Chromebook is to run "crouton" -- essentially, a desktop Linux within a chroot within ChromeOS. Why would you want to do this as opposed to installing Logos within Crostini on a Chromebook (as an earlier post of mine documented)? You have full access to all of your hardware. In my case, I have the full 16gb of RAM

    [quote user="Rik Shaw"] Dirk, glad you got it working! You could run wasta-logos-setup again (do NOT create a new prefix) and it should repair your launcher. Alternatively, you can manually adjust it. Here is what my launcher has: Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/rik/.wine-logos" /opt/wasta-wine/bin/wine C:\\\\windows\\\\command\\\\start.exe /Unix /home/rik

    I'm still having problems with my Logos installation in a container finishing indexing. It gets stuck at 5% even after several hours. I can tell indexing is not finished because I can't do searches and the performance is really slow. Does anyone have suggestions for how I can address this?

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Downloading all of my 7,000 resources into my LXC container took 24 hours (way longer than my other installations) and indexing is proceeding really, really slowly. Is this an issue others have encountered with their Linux installations, or might it be unique to the fact that I installed mine in a Linux container?
