Thread: Virtualbox doesn't start

  1. #1

    Default Virtualbox doesn't start

    I installed Virtualbox 4.3.30-20.1 using YaST2 but when I can't open it nor from application launcher nor console. On console I get:

    Code:
    xxxxxx@XXXXXX:~> vboxgtk 
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/vboxgtk", line 94, in <module>
        vboxgtk.main()
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vboxgtk/iface.py", line 47, in call_with_method
        return func(self,*args,**kwargs)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vboxgtk/iface.py", line 74, in main
        builder.add_from_file(os.path.join(paths.data_path, f))

    vboxgtk is broken and abandoned.

    Uninstall it and use virtualbox-qt (the official GUI by Oracle) instead.

    Thanks. Now it works. Earlier I installed only packets which was set automatically by package manager (and there wasn't virtualbox-qt)

    Well, if you select virtualbox, YaST will select a GUI automatically. As vboxgtk comes first in the alphabet, it might have chosen that.
