Hi Jeff:

David K. says he has the modules working in Ubuntu using his old installer. So far it has not worked for me. Hope the info helps.

This is from Jonathan on the Ubuntu forums. I gave them the list of links that Jess posted on where to download modules for esword and they added these.

To Frank's list add:

* Illustrations: http://www.e-sword.net/illustrations.html
* Recent Files: http://www.e-sword.net/recent.html


I do not know the URL for the following resource types:

* Topical Files;
* Harmony Resources;

First E-sword lost the desktop file.The link in the menu still worked so I didn't bother fixing it. Then it disappeared so I drug the executable out of local/bin and it opened but all the data was gone.
The Bibles had all the lists of books and chapters but not a single verse was there , Alll my topic notes, books, study notes etc were gone.
Weird.

I opened it from .wine and no problem.

Sub_title: Version 9.9.0 has been released
 

Version 9.9.0 (setup990.exe) is now available.

Just download the new setup990.exe and doubleclick on it. It installs fine over your existing 9.8 version.

NOTE: The download feature still does not work, otherwise it appears to be OK.

All of the Search dialogs have been completely redesigned! The layout, functionality, and results are greatly enhanced, providing even more information for study.

The new hotkey Ctrl+Shift+S will open the Extended Bible Search dialog.

The Parallel Bible will now support up to 8 translations for comparison.

Single-row tabs are now easily set in the Resource Options dialog.

The Graphics Viewer was adjusted to work under CrossOver in MAC and LINUX installations.

PostPosted: Fri 02 Dec 2011, 20:50    Post_subject: Latest Version 10.0.7, updated 2/2/12  

Version 10.0.7 is now available

Download the new setup1007.exe and doubleclick on it to update your current version.

e-Sword version 10.0 changes from 9.9 according to their web site

The Journal Notes, Study Notes and Topic Notes editors have been completely redesigned! You can now insert pictures, create tables, format with columns, have headers and footers, even work in print layout! There are dozens of new and improved features in the editors for you to enjoy working with.

A new Reference Library feature is now built into the program. With it you can view all Topic Notes and the new Reference Books modules downloaded from the e-Sword web site, as well as those created by others. No longer are these mixed in the Topic Notes editor with your own personal notes.

A new SermonAudio.com feature is now built into the program. Working with the folks at SermonAudio.com, we have provided an easy way for you to listen to nearly a half million sermons on any passage of the Bible!

The Resources feature has been updated to allow the management of Topic Notes and Reference Books.

PostPosted: Fri 09 Mar 2012, 18:53    Post_subject: U[pdated Procedures for Latest Version of eSword and Wine
Sub_title: as of 9 Mar 2012
 

Please test the following procedures and provide feedback on how well it works with various pups.

With the improvements in Wine and the latest e-Sword, the following steps should result in a successful e-Sword installation using current puppies and the latest wine .pet .

1. Download from green_dome's latest wine. Currently wine-1.4.

2. Download latest e-Sword installation file.

3. Install setupXXXXX.exe by double clicking on the file.

4. Install the attached esword.pet file which will setup the necessary files in /usr/share so that it will show up properly in the Menu. If you want a link on your desktop, place a copy of the /usr/share/applications/e-Sword.desktop file on your desktop.

NOTE:
It is important, after a successful installation, to make a backup of it. Just copy root/.wine to mnt/home. Another alternative approach is to move root/.wine to mnt/home and then copy a link to root/. This keeps the wine programs out of the save file (less danger of corruption) and provides the flexibility to use it with different pups. I still place the other needed files in /usr/bin and /usr/share/applications and /usr/share/pixmaps, of course they could be moved to an e-Sword directory in mnt/home and linked back to the proper locations. Also, you need to make backup copies of files that were added by esword.pet: /usr/bin/esword.sh. /usr/share/applications/e-Sword.desktop and/usr/share/pixmaps/esword.png (or just have a backup copy of the esword.pet) since these will also be needed for new installations.

Also, in a new installation of another pup, all you will need to do is install Wine, then delete root/.wine and add a link to your /mnt/home/.wine. The esword.pet will also need to be installed.

Rick Meyer, developer of e-Sword, has changed his site and now the only way to obtain additional modules is by using the Module Downloader that is a key feature of the latest versions.

The e-Sword Module Downloader is a great feature for Windows users because it shows what you have installed and enables downloads and updates, Now it also works under Puppy Linux.

PostPosted: Fri 09 Mar 2012, 21:53    Post_subject: Fresh frugal installation of Slacko 5.3.2.6  

Installation procedure described in previous post were used and resulted in a perfect installation in Slacko. However, when I tried updating a previous version of e-Sword in an older installation, the Module Downloader did not work. So for best results it needs to be accomplished with a fresh installation.

The e-Sword Module Downloader (image-1) and Graphics viewer (image-2) work great along with other program features. The Module Downloader reflects both installed modules and those available for download. Clicking on a module to download copies the name to the bottom panel. The download is accomplished by the Module Downloader and does not use a browser.

Thank you Rick for improving the Downloader so that it works fine with Linux.
