Pencil Prototyping Tool installed - but not launchable.

Post by scatterbrainz » 2019/11/25 12:58:47

Greetings Everyone;

Before I get into my challenge I'll provide system - specs.

CPU: i5-2500
RAM: 24GB @ 1333
GPU: Nvidia GTX 760 (2GB) - Nvidia Proprietary Drivers Installed (Kernel updated). [ Driver Version 440.31 / Linux-x86_64 ]
GPU Server Version Number: 11.0
2x 500GB SSD (Raid 1).
2 x HP 25xi (external displays)

OS: CentOS Linux release 7.7.1908 (Core)
KERNEL: 3.10.0-1062.4.3.el7.x86_64
DE: XFCE
DE - Version: xfce4-panel 4.12.1 (Xfce 4.12)

openGL: OpenGL version string: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 440.31

So, I downloaded an installed Pencil - [ Wire frame prototyping tool for web/ux/ui ]
I've added a launcher to the task manager
The Launcher - doesn't launch the program

I've gone to the terminal and typed pencil - to launch the program.
Program will not launch.

The following Error; is observed.



I saw somewhere that there was a dependency referencing librconfig-4-2 - could this be the reason? other reasons? ideas for resolution?

Thanks a bunch

Best Wishes,

-scatterbrainz (scatteredbrainz is more accurate - LOL).

CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

Those are back slashes \ and surplus to requirement in this case
* are wildcards, useful if you don't know the full/correct name of package
try

Code: Select all

yum install pencil

I have removed all your pictures from this thread. Please do not post pictures of your command prompts while they contain profanities. A repeat of this will result in removal of your account.

Oh Hey, sorry 'bout that, that's actually the computer name. Not a command LOL, didn't mean to be offensive.

I've re-done the screenshot so it excludes the offending terminal prompt. :)

Thanks for advising.
