UNR = Ubuntu Netbook Remix
CLI is something I choose to stay away from. One could go on & on about how great it is, I know. I actually understand the benefits, but my carrer is not computers. When I was 10 I had a Vic 20 & remember all that brain damage... jeez it was YEARS before I got back into computers. Wana scare 99.99% of people away from computers, send 'um over to the CLI. I'm not against learning it now, but it does seem to be a lot to learn. Windows mentality -- yeah, GUI, things work, reinstalling WORKS, less brain damage then having to lean the WHOLE CLI stuff. I mean are YOU going to help me go step by step with the CLI? If so, I'm here to learn. But if I'm expected to choose between learing the entire CLI before I can ask a question or reinstalling, I'll reinstall, solve my problem & my head won't hurt. I've choose to learn Linux because of the "free" spirit & simplicity.

Have you tried running it from the CLI, to see if there are any messages?

Also, have you renamed .pan2?

Hopefully, because you obviously still have the Windows mentality...
