    [quote user="John Goodman"] You can use debian fairly easily now. Since Louis' patch made it into winehq-staging 4.21. If you install that package, you should be good to go. Just follow the guide as if building from src but don't build from src use the winehq package. [/quote] John, can you provide a little more specific detail on your suggestion? Where

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    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

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    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?

    John, I know you just purchased an Android phone, but iOS has a system-wide speak screen function as an accessibility feature. I use it almost every day to read Logos resources when I work out at the gym. They have voices you can download in many English dialects. If you are within your return window and would consider an iPhone, it could do what you

    Adam, that's great! You know, I stumbled across this solution when Rik told me to try to run wasta-wine directly so that we could see the dependencies. Virtually every one of them had i386 after it and I thought that was weird because my Pixelbook is amd64. That got me searching for a way to install the dependencies with one fell swoop because I didn

Be able to run Linux (ChromeOS actually qualifies for me) and 2.) that it be relative lightweight and easy to carry, and 3.) that it have really good battery life. Reviews are in for the Pixel Book Go and they are pretty good, so it is a candidate

    It is a difficult to assess value in your case without knowing the specific commentaries and other resources that you already own. When I made my package purchase decision for Logos 8, I ended up purchasing Standard and not Reformed up front because the mix of resources in Standard were better for me. It may be worth comparing Standard Gold and Reformed

    This article explains that because the Surface Pro X has an ARM chip, it was necessary for Microsoft to add an emulation layer so that x86 apps can run. The problem is that this emulation layer only runs 32-bit Windows apps, not 64-bit apps. As the post above indicates, support for 32-bit Logos will cease at the end of 2020. So, it would be better to
