Eee Pc + Celtx

So I got Celtx working today on meh Eee PC... I couldn't find the exact instructions online so I'll post em here...

So download the Linux version of Celtx...

I put it in my home directory...so it was in //home/user/

Then right click it and choose extract or wha ever to un-tar the archive...

So then you'll have a celtx folder in that directory...

You can move it but I left it there...

Celtx won't work unless you delete this Scim thang so press Ctrl+Alt+T to bring up a terminal window...

Then at the prompt type : sudo apt-get remove scim : and press enter and choose y when it asks you

Then I booted into Advanced mode...lots of instructions to do that on teh web

Once in advance mode go to the launch bar---> Menu editor---> New item

Name it Celtx... then in the "command" box put : /home/user/celtx/celtx

You can even add the Celtx icon by clicking Browse and navigating to the icon folder inside the Celtx folder...

But once you do that you'll have Celtx ready to launch from your "Launch" bar...

It works great...just have to get used to the mini keyboard...

  2. That was REALLY helpful! How did you find out about the scim conflict? Getting rid of that solved all my problems!
