What is it about Ubuntu, that they never, ever, in their wildest dreams
or weirdest nightmares can get caught up to something relatively recent?
GnomeSword was into the first of our 2.3.x releases when Ubuntu repos
were just getting a 2.2.something...and that means they held onto
way-buggy 2.1.crud (like 2.1.5 *shudder*) for far too long.

I don't know about BibleTime builds, but GnomeSword builds for Ubuntu
(including latest Sword 1.5.11 libs to support GS) can be found here:
