    Xournal++ didn't find the necessary resources.

    There is something wrong with the pats. (settings not found etc. don't matter, because it's the first start).

    Simpliest way: copy the recources to the correct folder: /usr/share/xournalpp/ui/pixmaps/xournalpp.svg

    search for xournalpp.svg, and the copy the ui folder to /usr/share/xournalpp

    And then it should start. If you do not find the ressources you can get them from http://xournal.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/xournal/trunk/xournalpp/ui/

    thanks, if i understood well i have to copy the resources to the correct path but i don' find the first end the second ones in my terminal error. in fact copying the ui folder i have the same error.
    th first and the second files indicated in my error are /home/automan/.xournalpp/settings.xml
    and colornames.ini" (/home/automan/.xournalpp/colornames.ini): No such file or directory

    thanks

    I think this don't matter, because at least settings.xml ist created after first launch.

    i'm so sorry if i don't understand, but i'm not expert. i've searched xournalpp.svg from your link, i've pasted the text into a file and then i've renamed it into xournalpp.svg. the same with addPage.svg. the error is the same.
    i apologize if i didn't understand!
    thanks igor

    You have two possibilities:
    1. Build Xournal++ yourself:
    svn co https://xournal.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/xournal xournal
    cd xournal/xournalpp
    ./configure
    make
    sudo make install

    2. Contact the Package manager of your repository, may he can help you. You're missing files, but I don't know why.
