    Where do we find Rik's instructions? It would be wonderful to download books. Will it accept your email and tell you what books you own?

    Hopefully for Divine Intimacy as well. Remember, this man has done a calendar which makes Divine Intimacy relate to the current church calender, I'm sure he would be very pleased to receive a contribution to include his conversion calender in the electronic work. His calender aligns "Divine Intimacy" to the current Church calender and shows how awesome

  • Book Suggestion: Knox Bible

    Baronius Press publishes this excellent Bible. https://www.baroniuspress.com/book.php?wid=56&bid=60#tab=tab-1 The Knox Bible is the ideal translation for those looking to deepen their understanding of the Holy Scriptures. It was hailed as the finest translation of the 20th Century, approved for liturgical use and was endorsed by Pope Pius XII, Archbishop

    Although people have posted about WINE and Logos (Windows) compatibility, I've not seen any update. I believe there was talk about one of the needed libraries being ported to Linux which the person was very excited about. Regards, David

    John, Good post. The only problem with a web based Logos would be those users in areas where Internet service isn't available, like merchant mariners and missionaries in deepest Western Australia. As I mentioned running Logos in virtual machine has problems with accessibility, I think these problems would be best in another thread. I think it's wonderful

    Hi Veli, That would be wonderful. The problem is that Crossover - which is a polished and paid for version of WINE doesn't work on ARM processors that Android usually runs on. So were back to square one. A Linux / Android version of Logos Bible Software - OR - compatibility to run WINE or Crossover run it on Linux / Android. I have a Linux computer

    Andrew, Suggestions like dual boot Windows, run a virtual machine, install Windows, then install Logos are obviously not "Linux version of Logos Bible Software." Or even "Buy a Windows computer" aren't the subject. Discussions can get way off subject, and when you're trying to find answers by searching, it's important to have the topic match if possible

    Kolen, You and MJ Smith are both correct. I appreciate being given enough information about subjects being discussed so that I can search for more information should I want it. Let's not talk about "virtual machine" running Logos. It's not what this discussion is about. Dual booting Windows is another solution, but again, it's not the topic. However

    Jesse, One other advantage of Linux is that it supports the latest hardware. I had been thinking of going Mac but Linux just works so we'll. No waiting like Apple. I'd be happy in a command line interface all day, do i get most of my work done that way. Even coding a website in HTML sends tedious, when you choose it rather than using a graphical interface

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    The reason that I want Linux isn't so much that I don't want to pay for an operating system, it's because I have a rock solid operating system, and if I need a program to do something once, I'm not obliged to spend $100 for a program just to improve contrast in a photograph, we have GIMP (and GIMP for Windows!) for that. If I need to edit a pdf file

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Perhaps an open source system for user books, but the Linux version of Logos has to allow the publishers and Logos itself to make money so they can continue development and pay their employees. If Logos could be made to work in WINE all would be well. I suspect that it's the security aspects that cause Logos to fail. If a Linux coded program could run

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    I don't know how "GREAT" that would be. You have a program that allows you to read and use your digital books for free, and you trade it for a paid subscription that costs you monthly to read and use your books. It wouldn't be bad except for already having payed for thousands of dollars in books before you pay for a monthly subscription to use them

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    I think part of the "No Linux" problem for developers is the misunderstanding of open source and selling things, like books, etc. Certainly work done by a person or corporation should be paid for if that's their wish or need. I have no problems paying for books, I have no problems with Logos having a book vault where they can check to see if I have

    http://biblia.com gives us a chance to read our books. The bright side is that I did not update my Logos - too much money for too little use. I have an installation on one of my hard drives with Windows on it, but I rarely use it. I'm thinking about getting a portable device with Windows 10 on it, maybe Logos will run on that. I'd rather read on a full

    Andrew, Do not be put off by any comments, I thought your comments, although incedental, to be very interesting. I moved from Ubuntu to Arch then to easier Manjaro and installed the easier to use updated GNOME and added gnome-panel which gives me the old menu based interface. Be well, David

    Hello MJ, I'd like to be unconfused by the myriad of upgrade options - all about the same price, core upgrades, feature upgrades, Verbum upgrades. It is just not simple. I'd rather have a business model that new sales pay for the software updates and older owners just ride along. Maybe I'll install Windows 7 in Virtual Box so I can run Logos. I do enjoy

    Logos is becoming less of an interest with me. Two years ago I bought Logos 5 thinking I'd just stay current with Logos. When I bought Logos 2.1 we were told that Logos engine would always be free to download, you just buy your books and they are yours forever. The prices of the books has gone up severely. I bought Early Church Fathers for $29.95 years

    If I can send to Kindle, it will eliminate my buying the books for Kindle. Now I can buy books at Logos instead. I've been buying my books at Kindle because I can have them on all devices. Now this little "Send to Kindle" means I can buy at www.logos.com instead.
