So you can’t run Pencil (http://www.evolus.vn/Pencil/Downloads.html) ? May be you just unpacked it, and you are missing XUL.
Here is a couple of things to try:
1) First, let’s review the install procedure of the binary file.
1. Download Pencil-1.2-0-linux-gtk.tar.gz 2. untar it 3. run pencil It should run but it says: Could not find compatible GRE between version 1.9.1 and 1.9.2.*.
2) You need to check if xulrunner 1.9.2 is installed and running.
You can check it by running:
# sudo dpkg -l | grep xulrunner
If not, you can download the package from http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/xulrunner-1.9.2 and install it using:
# dpkg -i xulrunner-1.9.2_22.214.171.124+build3+nobinonly-0ubuntu1_i386.deb
And if you run it directly using xulrunner, with something like
xulrunner -i /pathtoPencil/application.ini
the outcome is: "Error: unrecognized application.ini path."
3) Finally, if nothing worked you need to change the pencil script runner, there is a bug in the script from the installer. This one works:
#!/bin/sh PROGDIR=`dirname $0` xulrunner $PROGDIR/application.ini
So, either you need to edir the real pencil script file, or put this text in a new file and give chmod u+x to the file, to allow execution.
