We have v4.5 of Bible Analyzer for Linux ready to test. This edition has essentially all the features of the current Windows and Mac versions. Here is the .deb link,http://www.bibleanalyzer.com/files/bibl ... -5_all.deb
There has been numerous program changes to BA since v4.1, including the Session Manager, a complete reworking of the Book/Articles display, auto Bible text scrolling with Text to Speech, and several more. The current User Manual is included with the download. Consult it for available features.
The file locations are basically the same as v4.1 except the configuration data, etc. Here are the specifics,
The modules are located under,/usr/share/bibleanalyzer/modulesNOTE:
The modules no longer generate .idx files when first run so running as "root" when new modules are added will not be needed. However, since Linux has no common "All Users" folder like Window and Mac, root privileges will be required when installing new modules under the /usr folder.
The configuration files are under the hidden folder,/HOME/.BibleAnalyzer
This is where Linux wants such files so there they are.
Any user made modules will be placed in the/HOME/Documents/BibleAnalyzer
As noted above, modules go under the /usr/share/bibleanalyzer/modules folder. Until we come up with a method of installing them they must be installed manually. Simply copy them to the corresponding modules folder and start Bible Analyzer.NOTE:
Windows .exe files can be used to obtain the modules. There are many free and premium modules on our web site and all are available as an .exe. The .exe files are simply archives and can be opened with Archive Manager. The modules themselves may be a few levels deep in the archive, but the .bib, .dct, .cmt, .bk, .dev, .pll, and imd files can be moved from the archive to the appropriate usr/share/bibleanalyzer/modules folder.
Here is an image of the BA-PickNT.exe file in Archive Manager,
The .bib file is under the Bible folder and the .cmt file is under the Commentary folder. Just ignore the $PluginsDir folder.
We may try to come up with a script that will automate this process for Linux users.Issues:
Sometimes books with images may not display the images because of a path case issue. For instance the Max Younce books will not display the images until the "Younce" folder is renamed "younce." /usr/share/bibleanalyzer/modules/text/images/Younce
should be /usr/share/bibleanalyzer/modules/text/images/younce
Some images may display properly without changing the case.
If there are any other issues or problems with this beta, please let us know and we will try to correct them.
