you also seem to be hung up on a fact. ubuntustudio *is* ubuntu. so.. if
you can install it into ubuntu, you *can* install it into ubuntustudio. the
issue you are having could be the 64bit/32bit issue above.. could be you
are using different releases, 13.10 vs 12.04 for example.. i was going to
go and download and install and test and make scrivener work, but i dont
see a linux version where  search.. where are you getting what version
exactly? i will try something for you in ubuntu if you share what exactly
im supposed to try. i only see referenced a linux beta version, where i
would expect, since its beta, to have issues such as you mention. is that
the case? are you running beta software and expecting production release
quality? have you asked them for support since it seems to be a commercial
product that you pay for? ubuntustudio, linux, nor main ubuntu is not doing
anything to prevent you or the scrivener team from making scrivener work on
ubuntustudio. let me know where to get the installer, and i will make it
run, and share my experiences...
