Gnutella on Kubuntu?


Hi everyone,

due to a recommendation from someone in another friend i am currently trying to install Gtk-gnutella. I think i've installed it right, through adept (i had to update some of the repositories), but now when i select gtk-gnutella through the menu, it just does nothing. no error message, program doesnt start.

Any ideas?

Try starting gtk-gnutella from a Konsole window. Post any error messages here.

Sorry, this program is too ancient to run without
an explicit user action: If it's not possible to upgrade
you may edit the file

/home/nader/.gtk-gnutella/config_gnet

and set the variable "ancient_version_force" to
"gtk-gnutella/0.96.1 (2006-02-22; GTK2; Linux i686)".

You will then be able to run this version forever, but
please consider upgrading, as Gnutella is an evolving
network in which ancient software is less useful or even
harmful!
I only downloaded it a couple of days ago through adept.......

What version of Kubuntu are you using?

Maybe make that change.

Also, check out the Ubuntu Forums to see if anyone else has had this problem and see if there is a better fix
