To give you a little background: I am currently running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and want to use the application pan newsreader. Unfortunately if I install that via the Ubuntu Software Center, I get pan 0.139-2, which crashes, when I run it.
[GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.ServiceUnknown: The name news.pan.NZB was not provided by any .service files ** ERROR:pan-tree.cc:80:GtkTreeIter PanTreeStore::get_iter(const PanTreeStore::Row*): assertion failed: (row) Aborted (core dumped)]
So I decided to install a development build from source code.
So I went:
git clone git://git.gnome.org/pan2
and after some problems I got
./autogen.sh; make to work. I rebooted several times in between these things and now the application seems to be set up properly.
The executable to open should be
I tried *rightclick run, but nothing opened. If I enter pan in the terminal, I am told to download pan 0.139-2 (The version that crashes).
Due to lack of understanding basically how a computer works, I then went:
cd ~/pan2/pan/gui and then entered
./pan.run, which I read up somewhere on the internet, but it said there was no such file in that directory.
Every advice is greatly appreciated!
