Fatal error installing Scrivener

Post by Zelator57 » Wed Feb 05, 2020 8:17 am

Installing Scrivener on Manjaro KDE. My initial attempt failed as wine-gecko and wine-mono were not installed. Having installed them my next attempt gave:

Code: Select all

called Tcl_Close on channel with refCount >0
I tried uninstalling wine, deleting .wine, and reinstalling, with wine-gecko and wine-mono. Same result.

How do I get round this? The only post I can find suggests installing an old version of Scrivener, which I tried - same result.

I don't notice any problems with Wine 5.1 on Debian Sid with the free demo from:

Could you post the full terminal output?

I also tested version 3.0 Beta 36 from:

and you need to install speechsdk with winetricks as stated on:

Nevertheless, I cannot duplicate your problem.

I installed speechsdk and this time Scrivener installed perfectly.

Registering did prove a problem though, due to .NET not being installed.
The advice on the thread viewtopic.php?f=2&t=32869&sid=257be19e9 ... f80fda80aa - "TLS 1.2 for activate license of software Scrivener" - led me through the arcane process of installing it. It takes a while.

My thanks to all.
