I couldn't believe it that the above worked perfectly the first time. It even put an icon on the desktop for me to use. The script would have to be changed if e-Sword is updated. I installed the latest e-Sword into the latest Ubuntu (18.04). It isn't my script and I wouldn't have a clue how to help you if you have problems. All I can really guarantee is that it worked for me, and I mean that everything works in e-Sword.

Now, would have been fantastic if you did a screen recording (a video) of what you did, and that way everyone could see what you did, and how you did it.

 

That said, what you outlined basically also applies to any Windows software. So, on that note, great job.

 

Blessings,

I tried to set up a dual boot with Windows and Ubuntu recently and made a mistake. I now have 100% Ubuntu. I'm still learning everything and don't know how to make a video. All it would have shown is copying and pasting one line of the script at a time into the terminal program and hitting return at the end of each line. This would not include the lines starting with #. I did run Ubuntu many years ago and had a horrible time trying to install e-Sword. I don't remember if I ever got e-Sword installed with everything working. So, this script should help a lot of people having problems installing e-Sword. I hope so.

I am running Linux Mint version 18. Wine seems to run e-sword without issue (more or less). The only problem is that I cannot change the font size from the settings menu. It seems to ignore any changes I make to the font *size*. Is there any way to resolve this? What would it take to get a Linux version?

I can't remember if I had problems changing font sizes or not, but I changed the default font to Tahoma to get the larger font that I wanted. Many have asked the author about a Linux version of e-Sword, and the answer has been "no" so far. I hope this helps you some.
