  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Most Android environments require Virtual Box to run because you use an emulator regardless of the emulator. Consider, for example, that the phones use a different CPU than your desktop. I have no idea how the emulators actually differ between Windows and Linux, however. The fact that Logos does not work with Wine is not a decision made by Logos, in

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    I feel like I am seeing some very strict interpretations on what is appropriate for this thread. More specifically, the idea that discussing using a VM to run a non-linux version on a Linux machine is not appropriate. I do find it odd that a discussion related to running the Android version in an emulator is OK, even though there is likely not much

    "Our solution for Linux users will likely be our web app at app.logos.com. If it's full-featured enough, will this meet your needs? Or is offline support a concern?" I did not search online to find this, but I did go to app.logos.com and I logged in. It looks like access using the cloud / online only solution requires a subscription. Unsure if this

    It was put up to be crowd funded but sufficient funds were not made available. The crowd funding option, however, was simply to make it run under wine (well, crossover, the paid product). There has never been a push to rewrite the GUI into something cross platform such as QT of which I am aware. The base windows package makes liberal use of new advanced

  • Re: Anyone seeing performance issues with Logos 6 on Windows?

    It turns out that the performance problem was related to using the nVidia proprietary driver on Linux. Reverting to the nouveau driver removes 3D capability, but then allowed VMWare to run this with no performance issues. I have not yet tried things like turning off 3D for the VMWare driver or profiling to see where the interaction issue is between

  • Re: Anyone seeing performance issues with Logos 6 on Windows?

    I just wanted to say that with the latest update to version 6.0b SR-1, that entire "runs very slow" problem has gone away. I test after every update. So, no idea what they did, but it fixed the issues. I can now select and scroll without issues (well, a few quick tests say i can anyway).

    [quote user="Andrew"]I have pretty souped up hardware and Logos 6 runs like a drunken pig in a Windows 7 Virtual Machine, even though it has memory to spare and does not appear to peg the CPU. Logos 5 was very fast in the same VM. I do not experience the slowdown on any of my other programs in that same VM (including three dimensional animated graphics

    I'll bet that if you put out a poll, people would not know about the holographic stuff MS is doing.... Since Windows 10 is slated to be a rental OS rather than a purchase and own, this could be a game changer. Can't wait to see what they charge and adoption rates. Finding people who actually like Windows 8.1 is rare enough that it is note worthy in

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Linux appears to require fewer resources just to run, which means that you have more resources left to run the application, even though the application itself would most likely have very similar usage characteristics. I would expect that given a base install that an application (all other things being equal) would have more resources available on Linux

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    What Donald is saying is that he is able to run Linux on Machines that are not sufficiently powerful to run Windows. I have seen this numerous times. A fully usable machine running programs with no issues that perform poorly on a Windows computer. That includes running the same applications (like LibreOffice or GImp). Dan, I take your comments to be

    If you wait, you will have a free upgrade option, but it will not update your text to take advantage of new features. If you are confused, just call them, and they will talk you through the differences. I run this in a Windows 7 VM and Logos 6 on my VM has serious performance issues. May setup a new / different VM to see if it makes a difference since

  • Re: Lag when Filtering Library on Windows

    Sorry for the late reply, but, no, I don't think that the extra cores would solve the lag problem. When I used advanced built-in to the OS, there was a bunch of threads running (I think that one process may have had like 50 threads running). And I think that there were three distinct processes running. My opinion is that scrolling and paging is pretty

    Really good idea. I will follow-up on this after work. I did run a performance test and it rates things on a scale of 1 to 7.9 such as: Processor - 7.6 RAM - 7.9 Graphics - 5.9 Gaming Graphics - 5.3 Hard Disk - 6.5 It seems that Gaming Graphics is the lowest score of 5.3 with regular graphics at 5.9. This is currently set to let windows choose what

    My primary desktop is Linux and Logos is not supported on Linux.... so, I cannot run Logos from outside a VM; sadly.

  • Re: Anyone seeing performance issues with Logos 6 on Windows?

    I did some testing... in hind site I should have done before and after testing, but, my first step was to tell VMWare to "upgrade" the VM so that I would use the latest hardware definitions as supported by the latest version of Workstation. Had not occurred to me until I read some of the posts here (not that it was specifically mentioned). I then looked

  • Re: Anyone seeing performance issues with Logos 6 on Windows?

    Since it runs in a VM, I can limit what it has access to, but, the machine itself is pretty robust; for example, 32 GB of RAM. I just don't usually give huge amounts of RAM to a VM unless I expect it to need it so that if I want to fire-up another couple of VMs i am still good to go. I even chose a CPU with 6 dies to improve multi-threaded performance

  • Anyone seeing performance issues with Logos 6 on Windows?

    Anyone else notice that Logos 6 is sluggish compared to Logos 5? I run 64-bit WIndows 7 in a virtual machine (VM Workstation 11). Historically, I used 4 GB of RAM, 1 CPU, and 2 cores to run Logos 5 and I never considered it slow. Now that I have version 6 running, things run very slow. For example, selecting verses (click and drag) is very slow. Sufficiently
