I can confirm that qgo (I have version 1.5.4) doesn't work directly with

qgo's GTP implementation isn't very forgiving. You can get it to work if
you run pachi through a GTP proxy like gogui-adapter.

(But I don't think qgo supports command-line arguments for its engines,
so you have to write a little script.)

Or else you could use a more robust graphical client. I use gogui and
quarry, and they both work fine with pachi.
