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?
