View Full Version : e-Sword! You asked for it! You got it!

One of the main requests for Ubuntu CE has been the inclusion of e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net). I did not think this would be easy to implement using wine since it requires so much user configuration to get it to work. Well, after successfully building the Internet Explorer .deb (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=370705&highlight=internet+explorer+.deb) package I decide to give e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net/) another look.

I used the following thread along with some other bits and pieces of info on the web for the configuration.
http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=332566&highlight=e-sword

I have also built an e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net/) Module Manager to go along with it. It allows you to install many of the free modules available from the e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net/) site with one click.

I have packaged the whole thing as a .deb package for a super easy installation. It should be considered "beta" for now. So USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

I really would like to get some feedback on this. The more feedback I get the more likely that e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net/) w/ the Module Manager will be included in the next release of Ubuntu CE.

You can download the latest version below.

Dapper:
http://www.whatwouldjesusdownload.com/christianubuntu/2007/03/popular-packages-dapper.html

Once you have installed the .deb package you can find the e-Sword (http://www.e-sword.net/) and the Module Manager under Applications>Accessories in the main menu.

I hope you all enjoy and I am anxiously awaiting any and all feedback.

Edit: I have removed the package pending response from Rick Meyers, the developer of e-Sword. There is some concern about the legality of the package.

Edit: The new e-Sword package is back up. I have contacted Rick Meyers and he has given his blessing with a few modifications. The program will now download the e-Sword setup program and run it automatically then configure it for Wine. :)

Edit: Be sure to disable dansguardian or at least modify your Banned Extensions to allow for .exe files. You can get the latest beta version of the dansguardian GUI at http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=355935 .

Edit: v1.2 now includes an alert to remind Ubuntu CE users to disable dansguardian before running e-Sword Installer.

Edit: v1.3 has been cleaned up even more. Now all the necessary M$ files are downloaded from the appropriate servers to avoid any legal issues with distributing them.


Edit: v1.4 fix for permissions error on internet connection test.

Edit: v1.5 added manual module install option and fixed the problem with the Module Installer closing after each module installation.

Edit: v1.6 has some significant changes. I found that the setup from previous versions did not allow other users to use e-Sword. This required the e-Sword Wine directory to be moved. So when you install the new version you will need to move the contents of the ".esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword" folder in your home directory to "/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword". This change was neccesary to get the package ready for inclusion into Ubuntu CE.

You can download the latest version below.

Jereme,

That is great!!! When I get my computer back, (it is in for repairs) I'm going to have to give that a try! Excellent!

Thanks, I am testing the Module Manager now. So far so good. I have found a few bugs, but they are all easy fixes.

I am starting to see what all the fuss was about. e-Sword is pretty awesome!

Let me know how it goes when you try it.

Jereme,
This is great! I am downloading the .deb file now to install and test it out! My mom always raves on how much she loves e-sword (http://www.e-sword.net/), so this will give me a chance to compare it to the gnomesword and see if it is better. Thanks again for all of your hard work, it is appreciated.

I do not have linux on all my computers yet and this is why e-sword!

e-sword has the strongs greek and hebrew and strongs numbers in kjv as well as hebrew greek and latin texts.

I am running Ubuntu 6.06 how do I install the .deb package EDIT: saw that you took the link down

Well, sorry about that. :)

A new version is now up. You can read the OP for the most up to date details.

You can download the latest version below.
http://www.ubuntulabs.devubuntu.com/deb/esword-ubuntu_1.1_all.deb

The filesize is now only 1.2mb and will definitely be in the next release of Ubuntu CE!!!

I would love to hear your feedback.

Now THAT is ύϸἐŘ cool!!

This is one of the very few things that I have missed about Winders and I couldn't see running a VM just for this one program. Thank you mhancoc7 for your hard work.

Be careful, all... I found out that it's not like Winders where you can run a bunch of the module installs at once and all will be well. With each install opening up E-Sword after completion, the ones that are still running seem to error out. Better to stay on the side of caution and patience and do them one at a time.

mhancoc7, I hate to ask more from you, but is there a way to make the module manager remain open and possibly return to the module list so that one can install another module after the previously selected one is completed? It's a small convenience (read laziness :lolflag: ) thing on my part since the manager was one of the most refined I've seen in a long time.

Also a question: is the module listing within the manager updated from somewhere or is it populated with only the items that were available when the .deb was created?

Thank you again for the excellent coding. I now have more ammunition to bring my friends over into the light ;)

So did the install and everything work for you? Did the Module Manager work as well?

Yes, I am working to get the Module Manager to remain open. It is a pain to have reopen it. I have had some issues with getting it to stay open. For now I at least wanted to get everything functioning.

The items in the Module Manager are just ones that I selected. They do not get populated from the site. I plan to add more of the available modules in the future, again just trying to get everything working. :)

Please let me know what is working and what is not and any other comments or suggestions that you might have.

Jeremy great job in getting e-sword for Ubuntu CE!! I know a ton of people will love having it on the system!
I'm having a hard time installing it. The package downloads nice and the package shows it's self in the Module Manager under Applications>Accessories in the main menu. When I open up e-sword it start the install but when it gets to the window saying that it will ask you for the password I click Ok and then it's gone and I cant reopen it again. The e-sword module manger seems to be running fine and installing modules but I can't install or reopen e-sword it's self. I tried to reinstall the package and it worked fine up until that same window about the password and then crashes. Any ideas?

Thanks for letting me know that you got it working. I didn't even think about dansguardian blocking it. duh :) I will add that to the OP.

I really appreciate your kind words. Please keep me updated on your experience with it. What work, and what does not or any suggestions or comments. I am planning to include it in the next release of Ubuntu CE so I want to squash as many bugs as possible before then.

This is kind of a hack, but it will work great for getting your already installed modules into e-Sword. If you want to transfer them from Windows to your Ubuntu e-Sword.

In Windows, double click on my computer. Next click on "Program Files" now fine e-Sword and double click that folder. Now you can see all the e-Sword files. Copy all the .bbl files and .cmt .top .map .dct files and paste them somewhere you have access to with Ubuntu (a usb drive, or pendrive, or something a fat32 partition) Now boot into Ubuntu. In Ubuntu use Nautilus to open the location of the copied files from e-Sword. Got to home in nautilus, and click View -> see hidden files Now click on the .wine folder then "drive_c" now on Program Files and then e-Sword, and paste all those files into e-Sword. It is a bit of an easier way to get your modules into your Ubuntu edition if you have a lot.

On the other hand keep trying the module manager to help Jereme debug it, and post your error messages so it will work great! Another week and I am looking forward to giving the deb a try and seeing how it looks and works. :)

Everything so far is working splendidly. As mentioned in my previous, they were just little nitpicks. I was very impressed with the polished appearance of the manager and everything worked perfectly for me from the start. Thank you for making this for we users ;)

This is superb! and the first time Wine has worked properly for me with any application and what I like about it best of all is that you really feel you are running it as part of ubuntu and not through the WINE interface.

Keep up the great work.

many many thanks.

Hmm, well, I spoke too soon. Upon start up I am getting:



Error encountered opening bible file: c:\Program Files\e-sword\jps.bbl


One of these messages pops up for each downloaded file. E-sword then starts but with no files open. The bible files and commentaries etc. have been written into the e-sword folder, under ~/.esword/drive_c/Program Files. The permissions are 644 with my user name as owner. So I don't see anything wrong.

Any ideas?

I am not sure what is going on there. I just re-tested the JPS module. It works great. You might try changing the permissions to 777 on the file and see if it works then. Mine is 644 and is working great with no errors.

You might also just try installing the module again. Is this the only module that you have had a problem with?

It requires that Wine is installed. It will not however make any changes to your existing Wine configuration. The e-Sword installer uses its own Wine directory.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Ok, did that, and no change in behavior.

No, all of my downloaded modules pop up the same error message when the program starts. I downloaded them again, and there is no change. I have seven or eight modules now, and all give the error.

I opened up the Options --> Resource... box in the menus, and it is pointing to c:\program files\e-sword\ in lower case. Maybe it is case-insensitive 'cause it is windows? I dunno. Anyway it does not see any files at all. I then tried to navigate through the directory tree to the correct directory, but it won't let me do that. The OK button becomes grayed out when I get to the e-Sword (with the capital) directory. So it is not seeing my files, but they are there. Its very weird, I don't understand what is going on. :confused:

Hey guys. I just installed e-sword and a module and it went off without a hitch. If there is anything I could check on my machine that may help determine what's different or causing the problem on yours let me know...

BTW - awesome job on the installer Jeremy! It looks super clean! I haven't used e-sword before, but with all of the positive comments I just had to see for myself.

Strange? Did you use the default settings during the e-Sword setup? I would probably try to completely uninstall the .deb package in synaptic then reinstall it. Then start fresh.

They shoud be set to your username/group. Just to be sure are you using the latest version (v1.4)? Also have you tried to completely remove it and then reinstall?

As you can see I manually changed the owner of the /usr/local/apps tree. I will try the user install again and let you know.

Edit: Ok, the re-install did not eliminate the errors. It still cannot find the bible, dictionary, etc. files. But they are there:

Yes to both questions, twice. Here is the terminal output.


As you can see I manually changed the owner of the /usr/local/apps tree. I will try the user install again and let you know.


Ok try this.

sudo apt-get remove esword-ubuntu
rm -rf /usr/local/apps/esword4linux/
rm $HOME/.esword

Now that should have removed everything to do with the installation.

Now double click on the .deb package and use the gdebi package installer to install esword-ubuntu. This is how I normally install .deb packages. This way we are doing it the same way. If it installs then we can see that there was a problem installing from the command line.

I am really stumped here so I am kind of grasping at straws.

Make sure dansguardian is off. I got a lot of weird stuff like that when I tried install e-sword with dasguardian on worked fine when it was off, that was with the 1.1v so I'll try the 1.4 and see what I get.

I removed 1.1v and installed 1.4v with dansguardian running but letting .exe through. It seamed to work but after running the installer I got a window saying that there was a missing module .dll file type. But I have dansguardian set up to let .dll file through? I removed 1.4v and reinstalled it with dansgaurdian off and it ran and set up great!:) I would say that if your having any trouble installing e-Sword just double check that dansguarian is disabled.
Jereme, Great job everything is running good but I'm trying to install bibles from the e-sword site. No go? Have you tried and if so how did you get them install?

All of it is working fine for me.

The only thing I notice is that I have to keep relaunching the module manager before each additional module is installed - as someone mentioned earlier in the thread - no big deal really.

Where I have had problems with WINE before it tended to be because I had attempted install plus removal of WINE more than once. For esword I pretty much put on a clean WINE install from automatix2 before going straight to use your .deb by simply using the gui installer and not the command line.

Then I launched the emulated windows install and everything worked fine. A few tweaks such as increasing the Bible text size and then launching the module manager several times to include a few plugins - again no problems encountered.

I am running a pretty clean build of Ubuntu; not CE but an up to date Edgy Echt, not that that should make any difference. My main reason for jumping to esword was that gnomesword now will not install from synaptic for me due to an unresolved dependancy. Of course esword with all the extra plugins is loads better.

Don't know if my happy tale is of any use... <'())<<

Actually I used gdebi the first couple of times, and only switched to the terminal so I could capture the output and post it. Removed the directories too. Makes no difference.

Jereme, the e-Sword Module Manager is running great and installs modules easy. I'm talking about other Bibles namely the pay for ones as well as ones in other languages. I can download them but when I goto run them in wine, it doesn't do anything? Not sure why it won't even come up to a setup or install screen in Wine?

Oh, ok. I plan to possible add the ability to install your own Bible modules in the Module Manager.

For now you can do this.

Put the YOURMODULE.exe file in the following directory.
/home/YOURUSERNAME/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword/

Then run the following in a terminal


WINEPREFIX="$HOME/.esword" wine "$HOME/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword/YOURMODULE.exe"

The e-Sword installation has its own dedicated Wine directory so the code above will install it to the correct directory.

Let me know if you have any questions. Also let me know how it goes.

Ok, thanks to the discussion above I have made some changes to the Module Manager. The newest version (v1.5) now has an option to manually install modules locally. So if you have purchased one of the non-free modules from e-sword.net then you can easily install it with just a few clicks. The problem with the Module Manager closing after each module install has now been fixed. This makes it much easier to add all of the desired modules faster and without the hassle of opening the Module Manager again and again.

Thanks for all the feedback. Keep it coming!!

See OP for download link for latest version.

Jereme, Great job!!! It is 98% perfect:) ! The installer works great and it is so much faster to install modules now that the Module Manger stays open after installing a module. The only thing I can see that would make the Module Manger easier to use would be away to see which packages you have installed on your system. Gnome Sword just has a simple check mark next to the package if it's installed. This is a big plus when your setting up more then one more machine. Even if you left the package tab highlighted in the Module Manger after install would be a big help. Thanks again for all your hard work on this!

Thank you very much for your feedback. You idea is a good one. I am not sure that the current design will allow for it, but you never know. :)

Did you try the new Manual Install option tab. I really like that addition since many e-Sword users have probably purchases some non-free modules.

I run vanilla Ubuntu, but recently installed ies4linux (just v.6) and e-sword based on info and links from the UCE forum. Was able to install my premium (pay version) NET module for e-sword as well without issue. Thanks!

I'm a big GnomeSword fan, but it is nice to have e-sword easily available as well.

I'm currently in Iraq and have Ubuntu installed on my trusty ol' T23 (thinkpad). I just pulled the trigger on a new X60s and hope to pick it up when I am on vacation home next month. While I am home, I definitely plan on installing UCE on at least one machine to check it out. :)

The only thing I can see that would make the Module Manger easier to use would be away to see which packages you have installed on your system.

That is a feature that users of e-Sword on Windows have requested a plethora of times, to no avail. If Jereme provides it, that means that running e-Sword on Linux has features that aren't available for Windows users --- which is a good thing.


Gnome Sword just has a simple check mark next to the package if it's installed. This is a big plus when your setting up more then one more machine.

GnomeSword has a built-in utility to download and install new resources. e-Sword does not. There are both more resources, and more places from which one can download them, for e-Sword, than for GnomeSword.

I got the wine emulator to work fine for E-Sword, however it takes a long time for the modules to install, even though I moved them to the directory on the main drive.

My next question is rather complex possibly, but I have a registered version of the Amplified Bible, bought legally, and wish to use it. Do I set it up the same way?

Also, does anyone have a clue how to set up Adobe GoLive in this? I have several versions and would love to abandon windows completely if I can get Golive to work. I have all the versions up to CS as well as a registered copy of menumachine.

Are you using the e-Sword Installer available here?
http://www.whatwouldjesusdownload.com/christianubuntu/2007/03/popular-packages-edgy.html

If not I would suggest you give it a try. As for your purchased modules. You can simply move the .bbl file(s) to your e-Sword directory. Then when you run e-Sword it should recongnize them.

e-Sword on Linux is now pretty much as perfect as a wine program can be - thanks very much.

Now to give us even more ease of use than the windows users maybe if you could have the option of adding a .bbl and also whatever extension the other modules have straight to the e-Sword directory via the Module Manager.

So for example you open the Module Manager and select the 'Manual install' there could be one more option. This should be something like 'install bare module' or 'add module without installer'

I hope my suggestions are useful.

In Christ,
Caleb.

P.S. Printing doesn't work and it used to when I used crossover office but that's no big issue.

This is a good suggestion. I don't know how difficult it would be. Here are a list of the extensions:
.bbl
.cmt
.dct
.top
.map
.dev

These are all that I noticed, and I have a pretty comprehensive collection of e-Sword files. Also there are many user made modules that have made there own installers (like one I made) and it is an .exe file, that automagically extracts the file to 'C:\Program Files\e-Sword\' It does ask if that is where you want to install it first, and I don't know if there is any kind of provision for that. I'm still waiting on my laptop to be repaired, so I have yet to try this very nice installer! I'm anxious to give it a whirl.

Hi Shane, if wine can run your installer than you're set as the module manager makes your installer think that the e-Sword directory in Linux is C:/Program Files/e-Sword.
That is so long as you install it with the 'Manual Install' tab in the settings manager.

You need to place them manually in the e-Sword installation folder.
This is placed here:
/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword

now sometimes it is hard to navigate here due to account restrictions.

The way I get around this is to type in the Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal)
"sudo nautilus"

It will ask for your password. Give it.

press the up button in Nautilus (the file manager) to get to the base of the file system.

You should see only 3 folders thats because the rest are hidden.
Press Ctrl+H This shows the hidden files.

now navigate to /usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword

Copy and paste your modules into this directory.

Well, I just got my Linux computer back. Love the e-Sword installer, that is incredible!!! Runs very nice. I did notice that now, however anytime I want to install a windows program, my wine has been modified, and no longer in the same spot it was. Not a big deal on a new setup, buy may want to include a warning about that in case someone already has wine installed. Really nice installer though, and excellent for newbies!!! I believe this adds super extra value to UCE! Excellent! Keep up the good work.
Consequently I now have 2 working editions of e-Sword, I was comparing them to see if there were any differences. I noticed you got the maps working too, wonderfull, plus the strongs numbers pop ups, excellent! I noticed too that my installation is a little darker gray in color as far as the window, and the deb installation is a little lighter in gray. That was wierd, but not a problem. I also installed another Bible program that I already had installed too, The Word (http://theword.gr) to see if it worked better, and it does work better with your wine installation! Wow, a double plus for me. How can I see what was done with that wine installation? It is a excellent work.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I am glad that you are enjoying it. The e-Sword Installer should not have any affect on your default wine installation. The e-Sword Installer creates a dedicated wine directory for e-Sword. So I am not sure what is going on there. Could you give me a bit more details of your problem.

The .deb installer uses your system theme. The actual e-Sword program is using a Ubuntu-ish theme set to look like Edgy. It is not quite perfect, but I thought it looked better than the default wine look.

You can look at the all of the scripts that are used to configure the dedicated wine directory in the /usr/local/apps/esword4linux directory. To look at the actual e-Sword wine directory open the /usr/local/apps/esword4linux set nautilus to Show Hidden files. Then open the .esword folder.

I noticed that you sayed you installed The Word. Did you actually install it to the e-Sword wine directory using the WINEPREFIX= code?

Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

No, no problem. I thought it did, but it was my imagination. All works great. Thanks! I used it to re-setup my new computer, and just copied all my modules into the directory. Thanks again.

You do not have to run Ubuntu CE to have the e-Sword Installer.

I have installed the e-sword and even a couple of Bibles, but everytime I click on the e-sword button to run it...nothing happens. What can I do to fix this problem? E-sword was the only thing keeping me on Windows.

Are you using e-Sword in a language other than English? If so there is an issue with the path to the e-Sword exe file. Let me know if this is the case and I can help you fix it.

I will put together a post to address this as soon as I get a chance.

I also upgraded to Fiesty, and mine works fine. I'm using wine version: wine-0.9.34. Maybe try disabling your Beryl and see if that fixes it. Did you have beryl running before the upgrade? Beryl didn't agree with my adesklets and they displayed wrong. run this in a terminal and see if there are any errors that you can post:

wine /usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword/e-Sword.exe Just run it and then close it and paste the results from the terminal here, that will enable us to help you a little better too.

Well, I disabled Beryl and it still did it. So then I ran the command as you suggested and this is what it returned:

My guess is that you are going to need to find MSVBVM60.DLL and put it in this folder
/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/windows/system32/ That is my guess. I would try and re-install e-Sword by grabbing the deb for edgy and running it. It may not work since it was not developed for Fiesty, but it is worth a try.

Well, I've installed using the .deb package and by downloading the install directly from esword.net and both result in the problem which leaves me to think that this is a Feisty problem. Especially since E-sword worked without flaw in Edgy.

Tony,

Could very well be a fiesty problem. It is just odd that it works fine on my machine. I got one more idea. If you are wanting to give it a try. What happens on a re-install it is overwrites files, but I'm not sure it overwrites all the config files. It usually only creates them when they are not there, and then uses them if they are not there. (This is not factual, just my speculation). So here is what I'm thinking. We are going to rename the folder so that it is not recognized by the installer as existing and it sets up a new setup brand new. That will replace all the files and give you a truly new installation. In the terminal paste this:


sudo mv /user/local/apps/esword4linux /user/local/apps/eswordbackup

This will rename that folder to eswordbackup. Next with the deb, we will want to re-install e-Sword again. This should create a new folder in the same location to install e-Sword. If this doesn't fix the problem than we have a problem with Fiesty. Which still boggles my mind because mine worked fine.

Still a no-go. I guess I'll have to stick with GnomeSword although Esword is much better.

What I find really odd is that I can set the font in all categories except the Bible. Really really odd.

Ok, if your not tired of this yet, I have yet one more suggestion. Try installing it outside of the deb. First I would in the terminal
sudo aptitude purge wine If you don't use it for other things. If you use it for other things, you may not want to do that. This should get rid of everything. Then
sudo apt-get install wine This will re-setup wine for you to make it a clean installation, then you can follow this guide here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=332566&highlight=e-sword) for installing e-Sword out side of the deb file. It is a how to that I wrote. That is my last suggestion honest. If that don't work it is certainly a Fiesty problem. I'm hoping not though, or a wine problem. I wish I knew what the problem was.

Sorry to hear about the problem try purging wine and re-installing it. Or better yet in a terminal type:

Actually it is easy to install it in separate bottle for each windows application so that it will not affect each other. To help those that do not know how to install in separate bottle, I have edited this how to (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...30&postcount=1)to use separate bottle (.wine_Esword) so that installation of Esword wll not affect default .wine directory.

If you have "all other applications" in one bottle (.wine default directory), may be it is time for you to learn to install in new bottle for new application so that it will not mess up your other applications.

Please inform me if any of you are still unable to install Esword using generic installation with separate bottle I just edited. It should run on any ubuntu version or any distro with wine.

I installed the deb for esword-ubuntu and installed it under fiesty 7.04 but couldn't run the program and the module installer wouldn't install the modules. After looking at the config files I finally figured out what was wrong.

/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-sword

should be renamed as

/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword

The capital 's' makes all the difference.

The current e-Sword deb should work on Feisty. The only issue is with the Wine version. You need to run 0.9.37. This will hopefully be fixed with Wine 0.9.39.

When I had it on Windows, I bought the NLT addon on for it and now when I try to install it with the manual install method, it freezes after I put in the unlock code. It only happens to this module. Anything other of the modules I try to manually install works fine. (IT happens to be the only non free one too)

Hi Tom,
I had the same problem as well and it seems it has not been resolved.
The workaround is to go to the Windows partition (if you still have it) and go to (I might remember this wrong):


C:\Program Files\e-Sword\

And copy the NLT file to a USB stick or email it to yourself; it's probably called "nlt.bbl" (I bought NKJV and it's called nkjv.bbl)

In Ubuntu, go to this directory:


/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program\ Files/e-Sword

and paste the "nlt.bbl" file there (using Nautilus). Or you can do it from the commandline:


mv /location/of/nlt.bbl /usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program\ Files/e-Sword/

That should do it. So the question is, what do we do when we buy another Bible translation later? (for those of us who don't have Win partitions any more)

I have gotten my WinXP virtual machine to work. So I guess I can install it first there and repeat what I've written here. For others, buy all the Bible translations you want before you erase your Win partitions!

That is in The e-Sword Utility Program FAQ, but I doubt that anybody but the most hard core users of e-Sword have waded through the entire document. Or should I say set of documents.:)

As people migrate from Windows to Ubuntu Christian Edition, this will become more of an issue. I don't know how to address it, beyond mentioning it in The e-Sword Utility Program FAQ: Linux. A document that I suspect will be read after the Windows partition has been deleted. :(


That should do it. So the question is, what do we do when we buy another Bible translation later? (for those of us who don't have Win partitions any more)

AFAIK, both eStudySource and Equipping Ministries are aware of this issue. They don't have any viable alternatives. (Neither of those organizations has any experience with Linux at the user level.)

Oh, and it isn't just Bible Translations. As negotiations with various publishers progress, all resources types will be affected.(Commentary, Dictionary, Topical file, Map, Memory, and Harmony. Maybe also Bible Reading Plans, Verse Lists, and Study Notes,)

Ouch. Been there too.

Regrettably, when I install Ubuntu, I didn't keep my windows partition. Urg.

If you have the time and motivation for NLT, which I do like that translation a lot, then you can probably do virtual machine for windows fairly easily. Did your computer come with a CD for Windows XP? If so, you can get it working with Virtualbox pretty easily. Just type in

sudo apt-get install virtualbox

Then click on "New" button and follow the instruction to set up a virtual machine. Then pop in the Win CD and ... done. Installation goes quicker on VM (at least in my case) than the actual installation. Once you're done installing it, you can call Microsoft to give you a new activation code.

Hope this helps :)

Edit: You don't have to call Microsoft if you don't need the win VM for more than 30 days.

Thanks for that virtual machine tip. I just noticed that you had replied so I haven't tried it yet. I'll get on that right away. With the virtual machine, do I need to install windows or no? Anyway, thanks for your help!

I have another question. I was planning on installing Gutsy in the next few days. Will e-Sword work on it? Hopefully it will!!!

Thanks again!

then you can probably do virtual machine for windows fairly easily.

What is the advantage to using a Virtual machine,instead of dual booting?

Before trying VM approach, make sure that you have Windows installation CD as opposed to Rescue CD. Sometimes those rescue CD's that PC makers ship your PC with do not work with VM. But I guess it won't hurt to try it (unless you erase your windows partition).

I erased my Windows partition ~6 months ago because of the VM prospect. With the "seamless" mode for virtualbox, I can seamlessly have Windows programs open on my Ubuntu Desktop. I can copy and paste between Win programs and Ubuntu programs, etc. It is memory and CPU hungry since you're essentially running 2 OS's at the same time. The best part for me is that I don't have to reboot to use Windows programs.

There is one WIn program that will not run on Wine and I really need it for my work. So that's what I do: VM. Hope this helps.

Gotta go to the Bible study now,

I did a search for e-Sword for ubuntu went to the first site and downloaded it from this link:

http://www.ubuntulabs.devubuntu.com/deb/

From then I just clicked on the file and it installed. It took a little longer than it did on Fiesty though. I just now discovered that the module manager doesn't work. Hopefully this will get resolved!

I have just downloaded e-sword during the install, it asked for a destination folder, with 'c/' as the default. I am still running windows which is on c, Is it possible that linux only recognizes the drive it is on as c or do i need to change the destination folder?

In the first post, the .deb for e-Sword was made for Dapper and Edgy. Does this work fine for Gutsy?

Also, I just tried to straight install e-Sword using wine. e-Sword works, but it's not displaying the text. Is that something that can be tweaked?

I just tried it for Fiesty and it all installs fine, but at the end it gives a message that I may have to enter my password, and then it stops. So I then assume everything went ok, however when I try to launch Esword nothing happens.

So if I open the command prompt and run it from there, I get a message about some missing path on what appears to be a Wine windows exe path. (I can report the exact message, but since I'm at work I can't do it just at the moment).

Oh and I had a similar problem when I installed "the word" package .deb. It again appeared to install OK but I cannot launch it.

I already had wine installed before I started, any ideas on what might have have gone wrong??

Sounds like it is hanging up on running gksu. Are you using Kubuntu? If not are you using a language other than English? Those are the only two things that I can think of. If you can post the exact message you get in the terminal that might help.

I would try to run the installer in the terminal so you so you can see what is actually happening during install. Then you can post the terminal output of that. It looks like it is getting stopped at the last stage of installation to me.

In Gutsy I have installed esword4linux 1.6 and it did just exactly like it should have and when I clicked the e-Sword Install in the menu it installed the program just perfectly. I installed several modules and all went well. When I click the e-Sword launcher in the menu or when I use the command line it will not run. If I sign in to the root or superuser account it operates perfectly. I have used the chmod 755 from the terminal to no affect. Is there a way around this? I do not want my grandchild operating in the root.

I've been having similar trouble installing e-sword in Gutsy. So I ran the install script from the command line and noticed that when the script tries to download the e-sword installation file it downloads a download.html file instead. I tried the download link from within Firefox and it works fine. The install script looks fine so i relly don't know how to solve this. E-sword worked great in Feisty.

This problem also applies to the module manager. You can circumvent the problem by manually downloading the modules you want to use and choose the manual install in the module manager. Hope this helps everyone out until there is an official fix for the problem.

Another way to get around the root issue is to use the tutorial found in this forum for installing e-sword manually through the terminal. I have successfully used the tutorial on both UCE and churchpup.

As far as the modules are concerned, I simply went to my dad's machine - a windows XP machine - and copied all the module files from his e-sword folder to my flash drive and then pasted them into my e-sword folder in UCE.

These folders are only going to exist if you used the esword4linux deb package provided by UbuntuCE. You used crossover so you will also need to install modules using crossover. Make sure you install the modules to the same bottle that you installed esword.

Thanks Greg

"Extra modules as packaged on the e-Sword website will not install in either crossover or wine - the installer just hangs: the solution to this is to copy the modules from an existing windows installation into the installation folder in crossover office - this sounds hard but isn't too difficult. Many e-Sword users already know how to do this in windows due to many third party modules not having installers anyway. "

I'm running Gutsy 7.10, I downloaded the same file as the previous person.
Then went to Accessories and clicked on eSword Modules, this then downloaded the eSword Files and put them into the
/usr/local/apps/esword4linux
Also in this path was esword4linux(2) possibly through the module manager I had working some weeks ago. So all the modules are there.
The updated menu Accessories/eSword links to script "runesword"
When clicked, nothing runs at all! :(

You can try below link "how to" to install latest version of esword (794) and using latest wine (0.9.54). It could install e-sword and even it's modules without any problem. Furthermore, you could install it on any distro you want, as long as it could run wine:

I'm having the same issue as those above, using the 1.6 version (.deb) it doesn't seem to actually install e-sword at all, nor does the module manager install the actual modules. Of course, when I click the E-Sword item in my system menu, nothing happens. I've installed it the usual way using Wine, but using Compiz once I maximize the window I can't un-maximize it again. I'm not sure if this problem would be mitigated by using the .deb installer, but for the time being I'm stuck with this.

Also- does anyone know of an ftp site or something where I can snag all the .bbl, .cmt, etc. files in one place? The module manager doesn't work and all I have are the .exe files leftover from installing in Windows, not the .bbl and .cmt files themselves. Thanks!

It is a copyright violation for the resources at e-sword.net to be distributed elsewhere on the Internet.

It is a copyright violation for the resources at estudysource.com to be redistributed.

Which is a long way of saying that you won't find a legal copy of those resources on the net as anything other than executable files.

Press the Libraries tab > type riched20.dll > press add > press edit > choose Native (windows).
Do the same for oleaut32.dll.

You should see the text. If still could not see the text, try to copy riched20.dll from ~/.wine_Esword/drive_c/program files/e-sword/ to ~/.wine_Esword/drive_c/windows/system32/

This is kind of a hack, but it will work great for getting your already installed modules into e-Sword. If you want to transfer them from Windows to your Ubuntu e-Sword.

In Windows, double click on my computer. Next click on "Program Files" now fine e-Sword and double click that folder. Now you can see all the e-Sword files. Copy all the .bbl files and .cmt .top .map .dct files and paste them somewhere you have access to with Ubuntu (a usb drive, or pendrive, or something a fat32 partition) Now boot into Ubuntu. In Ubuntu use Nautilus to open the location of the copied files from e-Sword. Got to home in nautilus, and click View -> see hidden files Now click on the .wine folder then "drive_c" now on Program Files and then e-Sword, and paste all those files into e-Sword. It is a bit of an easier way to get your modules into your Ubuntu edition if you have a lot.

So, if I just copy those files from my windows version to the one in ubuntu they will work? Sounds almost to good to be true. Especially since I only have dial-up working on my ubuntu.

For the modules, yes, it is absolutely working, as long as you have installed e-Sword main program successfully. On the other hand, you could install the modules using the instruction I gave earlier as well if you already downloaded the exe file.

I guess the folder is here:

/usr/local/apps/esword4linux/.esword/drive_c/Program Files/e-Sword

But I not sure about the permision. If using normal nautilus file browser you could not paste the modules there, you need to open terminal and run

gksudo nautilus

and after key in your password, nautils browser will appear.

But I suggest you re-install it manually using this instruction

Did I read that this was going to be included in the 6 month Ubuntu update? Then we can just install it like the gnomesword program? Thanks.

For licensing reasons, the e-Sword installation files, binary, resource files,and most documentation can not be included an OS repository, or as a part of an OS that is commercially distributed.

This does not apply to the scripts that David created for Ubuntu Christian Edition. e-Sword_portable251008.tar.gz, Create_Desktop_Launcher.tar.bz2, and e-Sword_installer_120109.tar.gz can be included in a distro, or shipped with any OS.

Hmm, well, I spoke too soon. Upon start up I am getting:



One of these messages pops up for each downloaded file. E-sword then starts but with no files open. The bible files and commentaries etc. have been written into the e-sword folder, under ~/.esword/drive_c/Program Files. The permissions are 644 with my user name as owner. So I don't see anything wrong.

Any ideas?

I have exactly the smae problem.
My .bbl files worked fine with 7.x but on 8.0.6 I get this error too.

Does anyone have a solution for this please? I'dd appreciate.

Thanks in advance

xiphos is the new version of gnomesword. Jaunty users (and older) must add the repositories (and the key) from
http://xiphos.org/download/debian-ubuntu/
or be content with gnomesword. (I didn't try gnomesword)
Xiphos is very refined. Its great.
Don't any of you like it?

That's kewl but I couldn't find any dutch bibles.
So I'm looking for such a tool that supports dutch bibles.
Any suggestions (preferable not something like running esword in wine).

Bible Desktop has a (one) Dutch Bible and commentary through Crosswire. I don't read Dutch, but my impression is that it's the 1618 version - SVV? - I get it through Churchpup 3.02, a Puppy Linux distro.

I am Carlos, from North Carolina in the USA. I had been questioning my desire to have e-sword in Ubuntu, I am a newly in Ubuntu and I do not know anything about it, even-though I am loving it. I wish I knew about it before I went in to Windows System (which I am desperate to get rid off, because I think is a complete waste of time and energy). So please help me to get e-sword on my computer if you could, but please be kind to my ignorance in the field because I do not know anything at all on how to do any programing at all in this system and for that matter in any system period. I will like to thank you for your diligence and desire on making this great program as is e-sword, available to evryone. Thank you again and please let me know. God Bless You!

I have made it very easy to install e-Sword now. Just download e-sword-installer (http://ubuntuforums.org/attachment.php?attachmentid=118516&stc=1&d=1245626623) to you computer, remember where you put it.

Double click on e-sword installer, it will be installed on you computer including the necessary packages. After that got to:

Application > System tools > e-Sword-installer

Read the instruction on the menu and you are done. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Can you put that Deb in a PPA?

My thinking is that everything in Ubuntu Christian Edition, that isn't currently in an official Ubuntu Repostiory should be in a single PPA.

I would to do it, but it require more administration job that I have not completed yet. The main issue for me is to study the code of conduct to be followed, i.e. I must follow the documentation standard, naming standard, and other things that I am not sure of yet.

I have just completed (well, nearly) the dansguardian-gui, now inlcude a slide bar to choose filter setting ( from 50(strict) to 160 (less strict) and you could choose any number in between just slide the slider.

I have also added advance menu to edit blacklist and white list.

I recently found webstrict, dansguardian gui for Ubuntu ME. I thought I want to use it instead of creating new one. But webstrict run on java, and it pull more than 100MB of packages and that put me of. No wonder there is no live cd for ubuntu ME, only live DVD.

I will line up the comparison of webstrict and dansguardian-gui in other post.

Sorry to bother you but I am new to Linux. I had version 8 of Esword working save some less than clear fonts and my graphics viewer would not display .
When I installed the latest esword it won't load but for some reason the training works very well. My luck:}

Will this script work with Wine 1.31 and Ubuntu 9.04?

Thanks

I just installing Ubuntu 9.04 from Kubuntu 9.04 because I saw that there was an installer for e-Sword. When I downloaded the installer and went to install the .deb file, it couldn't install because it said something is wrong with the dependencies, even after I installed wine. HEre is what the thing says:

Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: wine (>= 1.1.6)

What should I do? Go to an older version of wine? Also, this should work, in theory, on Kubuntu, too, right? Thanks!

ETA: I found a site with a walkthrough for how to install e-sword in wine. I ran this two lines that it said:

wget -q http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/387EE263.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

~and~

sudo wget http://wine.budgetdedicated.com/apt/sources.list.d/jaunty.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/winehq.list

When I tried to open e-Sword after that, it didn't work (lol). I tried to use the installer again, and I guess the dependencies were met! So, the installer should work now.

Yes, e-Sword could not work with wine 1.0.1 which is the default wine in ubuntu, that is why I put wine 1.1.6 as a minimum version requirement.

After you have upgrade to newer wine, the installer should work, and e-Sword should work also.

Yes you are right, the installer would also work in Kubuntu. In fact I have another version that should work on any linux distro:

I think you use e-Sword installer deb package for Karmic, which use wine 1.0.1 In order to use this installer, you have to remove wine repository, and remove wine beta.

But if you use other than karmic, you could use the script downloaded from below post:

I have packaged the whole thing as a .deb package for a super easy installation. It should be considered "beta" for now. So USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!

sp where si the .deb for ubuntu 9.10 karmic your 2 links are not actually ubuntu versions that i know of.

Hi David,

I've just done a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10. I found your E-Sword installer only after messing around for a while. I know that previous installs required a wine of an earlier vintage. However, after reading your posts here, it appears that the latest should be the best. But, after following your instructions I end up with this error message (see screenshot).

Suggestions?

whome ever the creater of this installer actually is should contact the e-sword team and see if they would like to put it on there site. as an option. they could put a disclamer stating its not there application.

e-Sword.net currently has a page that explains how to install e-Sword on Mac and *Nix boxes using CrossOver.

eStudySource.com has a page that provides a coupon for purchasing Crossover.

e-Sword-users.org has a page that points people to http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=404042 for instructions on how to install e-Sword on a Linux box.
