Initially the bible search doesn't work, but there is a work around established to get it working.
What was not tested
Before you run the installer, you have to install some DLL files via winetricks. Once these are installed the built in search will function correctly.
I've been running e-sword on my netbook without a problem since Kubuntu 12.04 came out. The startup of the program takes a while though.
This is what I do before installing e-sword. These instructions are for Kubuntu, but should work for other Ubuntu variations.
Set oleaut32 to builtin in winecfg
In winetricks install
Once these are installed you can install E-sword and it should work.
* To install msxml3 winetricks will open an MS download site where you can get the file. Once downloaded put it in: home/user-name/.cache/winetricks/msxml3
To find the .cache type ctl-h while in your home dir to show the hidden files. You my have to reselect the files to have winetricks install them

Jumping text when clicking on scripture

I used to use e-Sword exclusively for years until v10 came out. It seems the author isn't too concerned about supporting wine so I switched to theWord which works 100% perfectly with no dlls or addins.
What irritated me to leaving e-Sword was clicking on a scripture and having it send the scroll bar down beyond where the verse is displayed. It made e-Sword completely unusable for study. I have yet to get a fix for it and have tried using nearly every Windows native add-in (directx, visual b and c runtimes, IE, etc...) nothing works. To me this should not be gold. Perhaps Bronze, but not Gold.
