Time for action - installing on a Netbook

Celtx for eeePC Netbooks, again, is only available in English, so far. For a Netbook, we'll be downloading Celtx-2.7.en-US-eeePC.tar.bz2.

For Celtx to work, it is necessary to remove the scrim package or, on more recent Netbooks, the replacement gcin package. Type the following command:

sudo apt-get remove xandros-scrim


sudo apt-get remove xandros-gcin

If the latter does not work, try just the following:

sudo apt-get remove gcin

What just happened?

Celtx is now installed on a Netbook.

New iPad and iPhone Apps

As this book goes to press, Celtx has just released a new app (application) for the Apple iPad tablet computer and also an app for the popular iPhone Smartphone (the latter is free). The first may be purchased through the The App Store, visit for details on both purchase and how to use these add-ons.

This allows us to work on Celtx scripts on the iPad or iPhone and sync them with Celtx on our home computers or laptop.
