I'm new to geany IDE. I installed geany from ubuntu software centre, and the window has no options other than opening a new file. I can't file any preference, tools option too for configuring.
I heard it is a full fledged IDE. Also, from the screenshots available from the software center, it seems my Geany installation is missing almost everything.
I'm not able to post the screenshots, but my interface just has 3 buttons. create a new file, open an existing file and a quit button. Everything else is inactive. I accidentally closed the sidepane, and I can't find any options to bring back that too.
What am I missing in my Geany installation?
PS: I tried installing from source from geany website. But, it posted some error saying GTK files not found. But, I removed geany from software centre and reinstalled several times. It installed Geany without problems, but with afore mentioned problems, that is I have nothing in my interface.
Also, even after reinstalling, somehow Geany remembers to hide the sidepane by default, which I'm not able to see at all.
I also added Geany ppa repository manually for latest fixes, but still when I reinstall from software centre I get a plain blank Geany interface.
