    Default pencil won't start

    Pencil is an animation/drawing software for Mac OS X, Windows, and Linux.
    It lets you create traditional hand-drawn animation (cartoon) using both .

    I am getting this error :

    anton@linux-sd6c:~> pencil

    did you install using YaST? and, YaST successfully resolve all
    dependencies, or did it throw errors? if so, did you resolve those
    errors or click ignore/install anyway (or similar)?

    Installed pencil 0.4.4b for opensuse 11.2 from the site Software.openSUSE.org with one click Yast.

    No errors during install



    Because pencil is not starting by clicking on the pencil icon I tried to start it
    in Konsole to see what is going wrong.

    i'm out of ideas, sorry..

    except, perhaps you should seek and ask a Linux user (or pencil
    developer) at http://lesstooges.free.fr/pencil/forum/

    (rather than hope to find a 'pencil' user here)

    maybe they are aware of the problem you encountered and have a
    solution, work around, bug fix...whatever..

    do you know if the version of pencil you tried works on any other
    linux distro, or openSUSE version, or ??

    wait! 0.4 is the oldest available on that page...why not try the newer
    pencil-1.0.6-1.1

    maybe your exact problem is solved in the more recent version.

    Because pencil-1.0.6-1.1 is an opensource tool
    for making diagrams that is not the same application.

    I need this one :

    Pencil - a traditional 2D animation software

    i don't think there are ever any developers here...and, since those
    are the only ones who can fix the bug...well, you are just making
    noise here...if you wanna try to influence the developers you have to
    make noise where they *are*..

    i wonder if you saw and reacted to the note on this page
    http://en.opensuse.org/Submitting_Bu...ching_for_bugs which
    says:

    "Bugzilla is no replacement for support. Before reporting a bug, make
    sure that it is really a bug. If in doubt, discuss it on the mailing
    lists first (opensuse-factory or opensuse)."

    and, if you took that step? because the mailing list *is* where the
    developers hang out...i think what you need to do is coax one into
    installing the software and trying to start it..
