Ubuntu – Playonlinux won’t start. Ubuntu 16.04

16.04playonlinux

When I try to launch playonlinux, nothing happens graphically.

When I try to load it with terminal I get:

Looking for python... 2.7.13 - Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/playonlinux/python/check_python.py", line 1, in 
    import os, wxversion
ImportError: No module named wxversion

Please install python before trying to run this program

When I run:

python --version 

It shows I have python 2.7.13

  • For anyone else who had this issue, here's your solution..

    If you try to run playonlinux and recieve this error:

    ImportError: No module named wxversion
    failed tests 
    Please install python before trying to run this program
    

    Edit this file:

    /usr/share/playonlinux/bash/find_python

    And change the following from:

                next_python "python"
                next_python "python2.7"
                next_python "python2.6"
                next_python "python2"
                next_python "none"
    

    to:

                next_python "/usr/bin/python" #<<This line was added
                next_python "python"
                next_python "python2.7"
                next_python "python2.6"
                next_python "python2"
                next_python "none"
    

    And that's it!
