    playonlinux not installing correctly?

    i installed playonlinux from the software center,
    but when i tried to open it, nothing happened.
    result of the command 'playonlinux' in the terminal:

    Code:
    playonlinux
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "mainwindow.py", line 30, in <module>
        import wx
    ImportError: No module named wx
    /usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux: line 97: python2.6: command not found
    i then tried to install it from they'er website, and as far as i can tell i was successful, but the same thing still happens..
    anyone know why this is happening and how to fix it?
    any help appreciated..

    hmm...
    i did it again
    Code:
    playonlinux
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "mainwindow.py", line 31, in <module>
        import wxversion
    ImportError: No module named wxversion
    /usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux: line 97: python2.6: command not found
    now its "wxversion", not just "wx"... odd.
    anyway, BUMP.
    can't think of anymore relevant information right now...

    Seems to be a Python related problem (see this).

    hmm thanks..
    but i have more than two "python" files in there.. (python, python2, and the config files, AND python2.7 with the 2.7 config)

    Code:
    /usr/local/bin$ ls
    2to3  OgreMeshUpgrader  pydoc   python2    python2.7-config  python-config
    idle  OgreXMLConverter  python  python2.7  python2-config    smtpd.py
    how should i proceed?
    also, will this affect any python projects im working on?

    Did you try installing this?
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-wxversion

    i don't remember installing it, but it seems i did at some point..
    Code:
     Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    python-wxversion is already the newest version.
    python-wxversion set to manually installed.
    The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
      simgear2.0.0
    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.
    but...
    Code:
     playonlinux
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "mainwindow.py", line 31, in <module>
        import wxversion
    ImportError: No module named wxversion
    /usr/share/playonlinux/playonlinux: line 97: python2.6: command not found
    still the same..
    thanks anyway

    Re: playonlinux not installing correctly?

    What version of Ubuntu are you using? Are you using an unsupported version of Ubuntu?

    Maybe try installing
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-wxgtk2.6
    It seems like it's wanting python 2.6, and it looks like you only have 2.7 installed. I don't get it, though, because I never had it ask for 2.6, and I only have 2.8 installed.
