Fix for Linux users 7 Years, 4 Months ago  
Like other Linux users here, I also experienced problems installing Rainlendar 2.2. But I found a way to get past the errors (Rainy, please fix this).

I run Mandriva 2007.1 x86-64. I first attempted a clean install (no previous version of Rainlendar2 installed). I attempted this install using "Konsole" as "su".

1st error dialog box stated:
"Unable to create configuration file:
/root/.rainlendar2/rainlendar2.ini
Make sure that the folder has write permissions."

2nd error dialog box stated:
"Failed to touch the file '/root/.rainlendar2/rainlendar2.ini' (error 2: No such file or directory)"

Command line error msg read:
"Gtk-WARNING **: Unable to locate theme engine in module_path: "ia_ora","

BTW, I have GTK+2.0, ver. 2.10.11 installed.

Next, I installed Rainlendar ver. 2.1; hoping that it would create the missing "/root/.rainlendar2/rainlendar2.ini" file. It did not. BUT, Rainlendar 2.1 functioned perfectly. However, I needed ver. 2.2. So... I logged in as Root and, using Kwrite, created and saved an empty file as "/root/.rainlendar2/rainlendar2.ini". That worked.

I tested Rainlendar 2.2 while logged in as root and it worked perfectly. I then logged in as a user and it still worked perfectly.

I suggest following the same steps that I performed (as some people were unsuccessful in simply creating the "/root/.rainlendar2/rainlendar2.ini" without having first installing Rainlendar 2.1 and attempting the upgrade).

It's a rather long way around that barn, but it works.

Do not run Rainlendar as root (i.e. with su). There is no need to create anything under the /root folder. If you get the error run this:
Code:

touch ~/.config/.rainlendar2/rainlendar2.ini

It will create an empty config file and Rainlendar should start after that.
