I downloaded the current stable version of inScribe (inscribe-linux-v2.3.9.tar.bz2) and extracted it to the HOME folder. How does one hereafter install. Trying to execute the "Scribe" exe file does nothing.
Is the some kind of help/documentation one can refer to for installing on linux.
Any help is most welcome.

There is no official installer for Linux, as the user base is probably still single digits. If the 'scribe' executable doesn't run you should open a terminal and go to the folder where you extracted everything and run:

ldd ./scribe


And see what it complains about. It'll list all the libraries that Scribe needs and I bet there is one missing.

Which variant of Linux do you have?

is this error because the OS is 32bit while the scribe exe is 64bit??

Not at the moment. You are the first to ask for one.
