ubuntustudio *is* ubuntu.. you mean, ubuntu 12.04 LTS runs the beta version
of scrivener? and ubuntu 13.10 doesnt? ask them for an update for 13.10.
you can start the application from the terminal and see if there is any
helpful output there, or try looking for and moving/removing any .config
files for the application in your users /home (or, try the application as a
different user if that is simpler for you). do they have a stable version
you can try? have you reported to the scrivener support? cheers.
