  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Bill, I have figured out why the installer is failing and why .net is not installing. In order for winetricks to install .net cabextract needs to be installed. This explains why the installer was working properly on my desktop (where I do have cabextract) and not on my laptop (where I don't have cabextract). Bill, if you do a "sudo apt install cabextract

    Yep. Somehow a bug has snuck in.

    Guys, I am doing a new install on a laptop and I am getting the exact same error as Bill. It is clear that .net is not installing. When I've run the installer on a previous machine (and it worked on that one) the .net install took a long, long time. In this instance it takes only a few seconds and then moves on. For some reason .net is not installing

    Yes, I think it is worth it. Though it creates a larger download it not only makes things easier on the users end, but also stabilizes things a bit. I think we need to be careful that using updated installers does not introduce new bugs into the installation progress. If you are able to package a known, good Logos installer in the wasta installer, that

    [quote user="Rik Shaw"] The winetricks scripts that install .NET change the Windows Version back and forth for various compatibility patches while getting the different parts of .NET installed. At some points it even sets it to Windows 2003 if I recall correctly. Anyway, if the .NET install part didn't succeed, then it could be that it was set to winxp

    I have not yet tried the method described above with the wine prefix set to 64bit. The default for the wasta installer is 32bit. However, I am going to test setting the prefix to 64bit and will report the results.

    The feedback from those trying to get things working is very helpful. Sorry you all are having problems, but thank you for posting them here! This is the only way we will get things smoothed out. Ultimately, I think we're going to get this pretty smooth, but it's still early days. Until I made a certain change, I never could get Logos running properly

    The installer as well as the directions are being updated at a pretty good clip, so try again and make sure everything is updated. I am very interested in the container approach. Prior to all of the recent progress with the Logos on Linux front, I have been experimenting running graphical apps in Ubuntu using LXD containers using the method outlined

    John, Thank you so much for your help! I have messaged you back on Telegram. Your suggestions paid off and I now have Logos running VERY WELL natively on Linux. Most importantly searching now works which you can see in this screenshot. https://photos.app.goo.gl/BQcNT6TaQLvQ8EXC7 For all the rest of you who are following this thread, things are getting

    Rick and John and everyone else working on this. Thanks so much for all of the work. For the first time ever I have been able to install and run Logos directly under Linux without the use of any virtual machine. It's great. Unfortunately, I am having some showstopping bugs. I don't know if there is a better place to report bugs so I will report it here

    Hmm. I didn't even know there was such a thing. I googled that and came to this site. https://faithlife.com/christian-social-network/about Is that what you are talking about? That really looks like a different kind of forum software. I'm trying to open up a avenue for discussion that is less like a web forum and more like IRC or some kind of real time

    Hi All. You may have noticed that a few of my posts just showed up in this conversation, but they are showing up prior to this and other more recent posts. This is because they had apparently been flagged as spam and were awaiting moderation. I called a Logos representative who was able to approve the posts and send them through. If you are reading

    Looking at the Google Doc it appears that most of these steps are scriptable. Does not look very hard to write a bash script to automate most (or perhaps all) of theses steps. Will look into it as there is time.

    Rik, You are truly my hero brother. Do you know how long I have been waiting for this? Years and years! I've known for a long time that Faithlife would never work on a Linux port. I've known that there would need to be a community effort. Your persistence, and that of others, has shown that it will indeed be possible to run Logos on Linux without any

    Ok. I really need to start playing around with this myself and start looking into writing bug reports. I would encourage others to think about doing this too. Only if enough of us combine together and work on this is there likely to be any light at the end of the tunnel. Between MS opensoursing various frameworks and the tons and tons of work going

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    Right. I use KVM to run a version of Windows that I run Logos in, and I'm doing it on a machine with 16g of ram. Ideally, using WINE would be much better. I'd love to be able to run Logos on a lighter weight laptop. Regarding the downloading books problem, I'm assuming it's some kind of Windows library that Logos is trying to rely on which is missing

    Congratulations! Very good work! I am encouraged. Please keep working on this. Question. So the extra RAM usage. . . Is it from Logos running under wine, or are you saying that you have a different VM running in the background?

  • Re: Linux version of Logos Bible Software

    I agree with you that Virtualbox is slow, but the best answer is not VMware. I am using KVM on Linux to run copy of windows in which I run Logos. If you have trouble setting up KVM, just install Gnome Boxes and use that. Good Gnome Boxes uses KVM behind the scenes. I prefer using straight KVM because it has more options, but Gnome Boxes should work

    I'm trying to throw a rather large net and find all of the instances that faith, hope, and love occur either all together OR instances where two of the three occur together. Presently, I'm using the following Bible search to search from Acts to Revelation. hope WITHIN 20 WORDS (love, faith) OR love WITHIN 20 WORDS (hope, faith) This search returns 78
