Following up on yesterday’s comment about upgrading to and installing Logos 4 on Ubuntu via a Windows XP machine in VirtualBox, Logos 4 offers a nice import procedure that allows Logos 3 users to transfer all their personal user data files (e.g., notes, markups, queries) into Logos 4 relatively painlessly. There do, however, seem to be a couple hitches when trying to import Logos 3 user data in virtualized setup like the one described here. For the import to work properly,
- The “My Documents” folder must be mapped to a local drive on the virtual machine rather than a shared folder from the Ubuntu host system.
- The Logos 3 user data folder must be in its default location (for Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[Username]\My Documents\Libronix DLS).
The Logos 4 import does not seem to find the Logos 3 user data folder if it resides elsewhere besides its default directory, and at least from inside VirtualBox, if “My Documents” is mapped to a shared folder from the host system, during the import process from that folder, Logos 4 will raise an error message and shut down. Once these couple prerequisites are satisfied, however, the import seems to go very smoothly.
