Question Screenwriting Software


Hell-o,

Does anybody know of any Screenwriting Software for Linux? Something kind of like Final Draft would be nice.

I can not get Final Draft 7 or 6 to work with Wine anymore. Many Mandrake versions ago, I got Final Draft 6 to work. But I can't now. When I try Final Draft 7, I get this:

err:imagelist:ImageList_LoadImageA Error loading image!


Blessed Be,

Jason Hodges

Latex is the most powerfull typesetting system in the world
A bit hard to master, but it does wonders.

There is even ScreenScript, a class for writing screenplays.

Uhm, and I just saw Think and some others suggested in LinuxJournal.

Thanks so much for your reply. Latex and ScreenScript does seem a bit harder than I need or want. I'm borderline Newbie here. I just want a simple program. But don't we all? I said I'd pay twice as much for a version of Photoshop that runs in Linux. It appears I'll also pay twice as much for a version of Final Draft that runs in Linux.

Oh, while I was able to check out your links, the last one has an extra "http://" in it. For some reason, it took me to www.microsoft.com, the very thing I'm trying to get away from.

Thanks again.


Blessed Be,

Jason Hodges

No problem. I must have clicked on that link four times before I figured out what was going on. I have to remember that the next April Fools. Though, I did learn something new. There are 4 steps to upgrading to Windows XP Professional.
