For Windows (XP, NT, 2000, Vista)
Double click the CeltxSetup.exe file and follow the installation wizard. The setup will place a shortcut on your Desktop as well as place Celtx in the Start menu.
If you get a reported problem with:
- "The application has failed to start because MSVCR71.dll was not found. Restarting the application may fix this problem."
you need to get the files msvcr71.dll and msvcp71.dll. They can be found at http://www.driverskit.com/dll/msvcr71.dll/2373.html and http://www.driverskit.com/dll/msvcp71.dll/2371.html (or search for them on Google). The DLLs go in your C:\Windows\system32 directory.
As with any software downloaded off the Internet, you should be careful installing files from untrusted sources. For the security conscious, the MD5 checksums should be:
- MD5 (msvcr71.dll) = 86f1895ae8c5e8b17d99ece768a70732
- MD5 (msvcp71.dll) = 561fa2abb31dfa8fab762145f81667c2
From an earlier version
Upgrading from an earlier version to 0.991 sometimes causes Celtx to not start at all. If this happens to you:
- Remove celtx using Add Remove Programs
- Open C:\Program Files and delete the Celtx folder
- Remove the Greyfirst folder from:
- C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data
- C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Local Settings\Application Data
- If you can't find it, you need to 'Show hidden files'. From Windows Explorer, pick
Tools | Options... | View | Hidden files and folders | Show hidden files and folders
- Clear your browser cache.
- Download 0.991
- Install celtx.
This will give you a clean install of 0.991.

You can install Celtx by extracting the downloaded archive into your home folder (e.g. /home/yourusername/bin) and run the application from there. However, installing the software as a non-root user and in a local folder means that only this single user will have access to it.
If you want all users to have access to it, Celtx must be installed and run once as the root user. A typical installation from an administrator account is done as follows:
(copy - Ctrl+C - and paste - Maj+Ins - the following code lines, one by one, in a Terminal window -Ctrl+Alt+T)
If you are installing Celtx 1.0, then use this:
sudo tar zxf /path/to/Celtx.tar.gz
If you are installing Celtx 2.0, then use this:
sudo tar xjf /path/to/Celtx.tar.bz2
(enter your password)
- If you get an error error while loading shared libraries: libstdc++.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory then you need to install a package that contains libstdc++.so.5. On Redhat and Ubuntu, this is the compat-libstdc++ package. On Gentoo, it's just called lib-compat. In openSUSE 11.3 it's called libstdc++33-32bit & libstdc++33, and can be installed through YaST2. You might be able to install it using
yum install compat-libstdc++
Now any user can run it using
If you're running a 64-bit build, ensure the 32-bit libraries are installed. Just search for the string "ia32" within Synaptic. You might have to install the normal "ia32-libs", "ia32-libs-gtk" and perhaps other required libraries.
Ubuntu sometimes creates the preference files (~/.celtx, ~/.greyfirst) as root-only and the program will install but can only be run as root. To fix this easily, you can delete the files from root (sudo rm -r ~/.celtx and sudo rm -r ~/.greyfirst (don't use sudo rm -r on its own as this will delete all your files)). Celtx will then create new preferences files. Alternatively you can change the permissions of the files from root.
Note to Eee-PC users
In order for Celtx to work you have to remove the Scim package:
sudo apt-get remove xandros-scim
Alternatively, on more recent 701 EeePC (build starting March 08, thus including all 900), gcin replaces scim:
sudo apt-get remove xandros-gcin
sudo apt-get remove gcin
Celtx v1.0 uses too recent a package (glibc) for the vanilla EeePC Xandros distribution. Unless you want to take the risk to mess up with your OS we advise you to install the previous Celtx 0.997:
Untar it to your local folder (for instance):
sudo tar xvf /home/user/Celtx-0997-en-US.tar.gz
And launch it:
Next you may be thinking of adding a Celtx icon to the work panel through a program like Easy Mode editor.
Source(s): Linux solutions
Hyperlinks may not work. Firefox (upon which Celtx is based) primarily supports the GNOME desktop environment, although various Linux distributions include modified forms of Firefox with support for KDE. At the moment, Celtx consults the GNOME registry to check what your default browser is. We hope to address this when we have the time. Configuring your Mac Mail Client
If you can only run Celtx as root (not just the first time), you need to delete the following directories:
Depending on your distro, they will most likely be in one of the following locations:

The small Print
When installing, we'd really appreciate it if you would please take the time to read the small print:
- Celtx uses the CePL, which is a derivative of Netscape’s Mozilla Public License (MPL)!
