  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Ugg, I was not aware that they are using WPF. Never really liked WPF, it always felt like it took some magic undocumented incantation to make some of those special effects to work. On the other hand, there was usually some magic undocumented incantation that, if you could find someone who had figured it out, you could use to do something cool pretty

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    There was a time (don't know if it is currently active) where you could pledge to provide money to code weavers if they made Logos work. Logos even put up a chunk of money towards that effort. I did as well. There was never enough money pledged to make it viable for code weavers to do the work. In other words, the Linux people were not sufficiently

    The point of the title was to provide enough information in the title that someone understood the problem and the OS. I can assure you that the OS is Windows 7 and that the problem was directly related to the configuration in Windows 7. I had found other posts with similar problems, but they were directly related to Mac. The intent was not to imply

  • Re: L6 Must Have Books

    First, let me say that I think that you have already received some excellent advice. Apart from looking at the link provided by Wild Eagle, if you have a few books that you find particularly attractive but know that you are missing, search to see if logos carries those books, and, assuming that they do, then check to see if the books are contained in

    Of course, now, a bunch of my books are no longer available.... so, I type "update resources" into the bar to the right of tools, it updates a bunch of stuff, I restart, the stuff is still not there, so, I do it again. Grrrrr....

    And the final answer..... is that I did not have some Multi-Media player bundle installed and some DLL from that bundle is loaded on startup. Things are now working. Good job to tech support figuring that out! Thanks guys!

    Thanks for the replies. That did not help.... Need to leave, will call them when I am in next unless someone has something else that I can try (probably won't be around this computer while tech support is open for a day or two).

  • Logos 6 fails completely on Windows 7

    Running 64-bit Windows 7. Just upgraded from Logos 5 to Logos 6. It installed, started things, updated things, downloaded a bunch of stuff. then, when I attempted to start it, the start-up image is displayed and then Windows says "Logos Bible Software has stopped working". If I view the problem details, it says: Problem signature: Problem Event Name

    Something like QML can certainly act as a replacement for WPF, and the result would be a single code base with support for multiple operating systems and to some extent mobile devices (for a test, I compiled QT and then ran it on an Android device). They are improving QT support on Android so some of the hoops I had to jump through to make it work should

  • Re: iPad versus Android

    Syncing is related to non-logos related functionality, although I understand that Logos does offer some level of syncing with some of their stuff. She has contacts and calendar, but does not want these elsewhere. On Android, you can sync these with gmail. I understand that iPad uses iCould (or something like that) using iCloud. As for a need to sign

    My Mother has Scholar Silver as the base package and then a whole bunch of extra books on top of that.... The primary point is that the iPad and Android versions are at least "highly similar" in functionality. I just asked her what she was "missing", and she indicated that the functionality level is sufficient for her general use in either case. She

  • iPad versus Android

    I have used Logos on Windows some (but not much because I use Linux, not Windows). I usually use Logos on an Android device. Although Logos for Android probably has the best interface for reading Bibles (in my opinion), it is very feature poor. I have never used Logos on any Mac product. Was considering obtaining an iPad mini primarily because the intended

    Ironically, the race to the latest version of .NET makes it less likely that it will be supported.

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    I believe that a Linux version is viable. The question, however, is what features can be added and still have it be cost effective. Consider the Android version. It is not as full featured as say the WIndows version. How much effort would it take to modify that code so that the Linux users had something that would at least allow them to search and browse

    Dan, can you clarify? I might take you to be saying that ministries and non-profits should never pay for software. Also, what computing ability does Linux have that might cause Logos radically change their direction? What direction would they go? How would it save them money? Are you saying that if Logos created a Linux version that enough people would
