Problem displaying Old Testament
I'm using Gnomesword 2.2.3, BibleTime 1.6.5.1 and BibleDesktop 1.6 with Ubuntu 8.10. All of them run successfully, and I think the software is great.

My one problem is that after using Gnomesword and Bibletime for a few days, they stopped displaying the Old Testament books. I have not changed any of the settings, and I can still access the Old Testament in the ESV and the other Bibles on BibleDesktop, but when I try to get to an OT book using Gnomesword or BibleTime, it's as if they are not there. The booklist in Gnomesword or BibleTime does not go back past Matthew, even though BibleDesktop - which, as far as I know, uses the same modules - displays all the books.

Has anyone else had this problem? If so, have you been able to fix it?

Re: Problem displaying Old Testament
In some older versions around the 2.3 times there had been a few bugs with odd loops and crashes which sound similar to what you describe. I remember reporting on them to the main developers and also remember them being fixed.

So, I suggest you update to a contemporary version and see if your problem is better.

Re: Problem displaying Old Testament
I have now upgraded using the repository here GnomeSword Debian but the problem is still exactly the same. It's as if the modules in GnomeSword and BibleTime only contain the New Testament, even though I can read all the Old Testament books in BibleDesktop.
