See if you can get the link for the E-Sword package.

When you type e on the terminal and then press TAB key, check if you get something named e-Sword ? Press TAB key twice if nothing gets shown on the first go.

Does this say anything ?
Code:
dpkg --info esword-ubuntu_1.7_all.deb
Code:
apt-cache show esword-ubuntu_1.7_all.deb
If it fails also run the same with 1.6 instead of 1.7

Code:
locate esword-ubuntu

The results from above are : No such directory etc

I can find no trace of e-Sword in Ubuntu and under Windows There is one directory only with 4 obscure files in it, In a few days to a week I will be able to re-install the older (and free) version of e-Sword - so at least I'll have it back the way it was.

How did we get rid of e-Sword ? That remains a mystery it seemed to disappear along with CrossOver. In fact the more I think about it the more sure I am convinced that that is what happened.

Thanks again for all your valued help

Note this screen quote from Post 8 (a CrossOver uninstall warning)

Quote:
this will remove all files created by CrossOver Linux Standard in your account. ---you will still be able to use Windows applications that were installed system-wide, if any. But all the Windowa applications you installed as well as the C: drives contained in your bottles will be deleted"
It would seem that this is where e-Sword went

Anyways, it is nice that you got your problem solved yourself. But next time when you install something, it is better to keep the downloading link bookmarked since that way you'll know the exact name of the package and its format which are important for un-installing it.

I totally agree - its been a lesson I needed to learn. I don't think I did solve it myself. I think I was guided by you to think it through. You were giving me questions which made me learn as I attempted to answer them - questions that I should have been asking myself. The credit goes to you as an excellent guide. Thankyou !!

I think it will be better if you try to understand the package management system on Ubuntu. That way you will yourself know the types of packages you installed and what could be done to those packages and how.

Thankyou Rick Meyers, for that pleasant surprise.
a) Uninstalling, or installing e-Sword on a Linux partition should not have affected e-Sword on a Windows partition. That said, can you tell me precisely what you did, so that instructions for installing e-Sword on Linux can be refined so that people don't lose e-Sword data on their Windows partition.


b) If it was e-Sword resources that you had purchased, if you log into your account at eStudySource, you will be able to redownload them, to install on your Linux, or Windows box, if they are no longer installed.

c) e-Sword is gratis. CrossOver is not gratis.

Hi Jonathon, I had only one copy of e-sword and it was installed on the Windows drive C. I had tried to run it via Ubuntu by mounting that drive which Linux sees as a drive called DATA. but to no avail hence my email to you requesting help. I followed the download
directions and instructions and a working copy of a sword was the result. I was in Ubuntu when I downloaded and installed. So I was as surprised as you where when I discovered that my Windows copy of esword had been 'updated' and this meant it would no longer run the 'free' bibles - dictionaries etc which I had accumulated over the years. Of course I had never 'uninstalled' anything under Linux before - hence this thread. The reason for uninstalling is so that I can re-install my older version which I had backed up on a CD

No I have no purchased esword resources - just the old free ones

Thanks for this response and for your concern. All is well except that I would like to be able to run my old version of e-sword under linux, And when I get "Virtual Box" installed - then that will happen

You didn't respond to Post 22 does this mean you are not interested in understanding the package management system or you didn't understand what I was talking about ?

I know little about package management - and yes - I am interested in understanding the package management system.

Thankyou for the reminder )

From that description, my guess is that you updated from e-Sword 7.x or e-Sword 8.x to e-Sword 9.x.

One of the changes in e-Sword 9.x was a new database engine. Which means that you will have to replace all of your resources.

All resources that were distributed by e-Sword.net have been updated, and can be downloaded from there.

For everything else your options are:
  1. Hunt for the resource on the Internet, in the hopes that somebody else has already done the conversion, and made it publicly downloadable;
  2. Convert the resource yourself. Tools for converting resources are:
  • Conversion Utility v9.7.0,distributed at e-Sword.net, on the bottom of the Extras Page;
  • e-Sword 9 Converter v1.0.3, distributed by e-Sword-users.org, in the "e-Sword Tools & Utilities, Redistributable" section:
  • Ben's e-Sword Tool, distributed by e-Sword-Users.org, in the "BeST" section;
  • e-sword_bulk_bible_conversion4.zip, distributed from http://sourceforge.net/projects/bibleworkplace/files/. You'll find it listed at the bottom of the page.
Note: Those options work for e-Sword 8.x to e-Sword 9.x.

For updating from e-Sword 7.x to e-Sword 8.x, do the following steps:
  • Run FixStrong's. I don't know of any sites that currently have it publicly available for downloading.
    I have it in my e-Sword utility program box, and can share it with others;
  • Run The Tool Tip Generator. I don't know of any sites that currently have it publicly available for downloading.
    I have it in my e-Sword utility program box, and can share it with others;
  • At this point, your resources are more or less e-Sword 8.x compatible, and can be upgraded to e-Sword 9.x;

Thanks Jonathon for this useful info. I do have a copy of my current e-Sword application on CD - but it's at home, and home is 1900 klm away. I have a feeling that it is V6* - but I have found it a very useful tool. Being a pensioner I have been reluctant to upgrade because of the costs involved. Anyway I'll have an in depth look at your suggestions in about another 10 days when I am home again. Thank you for your input - it wont go to waste.

And Anisha - Thankyou for the four addresses you have supplied. Please don't edit them away like you have your joke, which by the way served it's purpose and made me determined to make a strong effort to read them all as carefully as I can. So it was a good and useful (provocative) joke because it provoked me to some action and resolve. So thankyou four times
