I installed Virtualbox and now I’m tyring to run it. The first odd thing I noticed is I there’s no virtualbox executible to be found, however in the startup menu I see VBoxGtk. So I try that. Nothing happens. So I try fromthe cl and this is what I get:
ERROR:root:Could not find any typelib for Gtk
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/vboxgtk", line 93, in <module>
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vboxgtk/__init__.py", line 46, in <module>

File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/vboxgtk/iface.py", line 29, in <module>
from gi.repository import Gtk
ImportError: cannot import name Gtk
What happened to virtualbox? Did they change something?
The “vboxgtk” package has not supported VirtualBox since 4.2x and is now considered dead upstream. The latest version is from 2012.
It is now recommended to use the “virtualbox-qt” package as the official GUI for the latest version of VirtualBox.
