I have not received any recent reports other than the ones that were fixed with the last beta 5.5.0.32

Hi Tim,
Sorry being a bit late in responding. Yes, the errors I reported were fixed in the last release (32?). the only error I consistently get is when I start BA. I then close the error box and BA runs fine. I will send the error now. You're doing good work on BA and I appreciate it!

Hello,

When I do the command "pip install sip == 6.6.2" I get "ERROR: Invalid requirement: '=='" and the bible analyzer package will not install. Any ideas?

Hello Tim,

I have Linux Mint 20.3, MATE desktop, Python 3.8.10, and I'm really not ready to upgrade to Linux Mint 21. I (unwisely) tried to upgrade Python to 3.10 so I could install the latest version of BA, but it broke many, many parts of my Mint setup, including the Software Manager. Thank God for Timeshift, or else I would have had an unrecoverable mess of things.

I still want to install, test, and use the latest version of BA, and I am thinking that using Pyenv (https://github.com/pyenv/pyenv) is a better way of starting out. I need to know how to configure Pyenv to work correctly when installing and running BA 5.5. I also need some guidance on installing wxPython in a way that will be compatible with the rest of my Linux Mint setup.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions and advice.

You can probably find a tutorial on how to install wxPython in a virtual environment in Linux. You do have to have at least two different Python installations to switch between. I'm not sure how but you will have to keep v3.8 as your default Python. I also tried to install v3.10 on a 20.04 distro and ran into problems. v3.10 has a lot of changes that break things. I had to make many changes in the Bible Analyzer code just to get it to start with v3.10. That is why Bible Analyzer v5.5 Linux it won't run on Python v3.8.

All I can say is you will have to experiment. At least you can go back and restore things if they go wrong.
