Thread: Virtualbox error

    Default Virtualbox error

    I installed virtualbox from YAST. Launching from Kicker fails.

    Launching from cli results:

    ginsburg@linux-nsa4:/usr/bin> vboxgtk
    ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for Gtk
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/vboxgtk", line 93, in <module>
        import vboxgtk
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vboxgtk/", line 46, in <module>
        from iface import main
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vboxgtk/", line 29, in <module>
        from gi.repository import Gtk
    ImportError: cannot import name Gtk
    What am I missing?

    No idea. It starts fine here.

    But my recommendation would be to just uninstall "vboxgtk". It doesn't work well with current VirtualBox versions.

    Install and use "virtualbox-qt" instead, that's the official GUI. You can run it with "VirtualBox" or from the start menu (System->Emulators).

    Thanks, that did it. Not sure why YAST had me install the gtk version - I am running KDE?
