Go to the Launchpad ppa for pan:

Select the 12.04 install for Pan 0.139.  Download the 64 or 32 bit
Deb package and install.   Does NOT use Gnome Key Ring...

Been using it for weeks w/out problems other than getting used to it.

Go into the .pan2 directory and delete the old score file.  I found some
problems with it on startup where it kept expiring the same scores day
after day.
