I have installed PlayOnLinux 4.4 under Linux Mint 19.3 Xfce 64 bit, which is based upon Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS (Bionic Beaver).

When I want to run PlayOnLinux 4.4 by running the command playonlinux in the terminal, I get the following error message:

:~$ playonlinux
Looking for python3... 3.6.9 - Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/playonlinux/python/check_python.py", line 3, in <module>

Looking for python... 2.7.17 - selected
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "mainwindow.py", line 28, in <module>

Checking Python:

:~$ python

[GCC 7.5.0] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

What is going wrong here and what do I have to do to fix this problem?

Hi,

Do you have wxpython installed alongside with python3?

Might just be a dependency problem

Do you have a wxpython4 version in your repository available?

DrM1173 Sunday 17 May 2020 at 18:52
DrM1173Anonymous

I don't know if wxpython4 is available in the respositories of Linux Mint 19.3. But why aren't these dependency problems with python-wx automatically fixed during the install of PlayOnLinux 4.4?

Quentin PÂRIS Sunday 17 May 2020 at 18:53

Yep, I'm just trying to find out how to fix  the problem automatically :)

We just need to find a way to provide wxpython4 alongside with your python3 distribution

I think that PlayOnlInux 4.4 was released too prematurely without fixing these issues with wxpython. I don't know if Linux Mint 19.3, based upon Ubuntu 18.04.4 LTS (Bionic Beaver), will support wxpython4.

This is why the repository has not been yet updated.

If we see that it causes too much problem, we are going to rollback.

 

Can you try this command?

pip install -U wxPython

Runnin pip-install -U wxPython gave me the following output blow with critical errors. I think that you should rollback to PlayOnLinux 4.3.4 untill these problems with wxpython4 have been fixed, also for those who use Linux Mint 19.3 or Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver.

 

:~$ pip install -U wxPython

Ok, seems that it needs all gtk developement dependency... What if you try to do as it is explained on this page?

I am going to rollback to PlayOnLinux 4.3.4, I don't want to be a Beta tester for PlayOnLinux 4.4 with its python related bugs. I think that you should fix it so that PlayOnLinux 4.4 can also be run on Linux Mint 19.3/Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Bionic Beaver without problems.

So I originally messed up my installation by just trying to install using apt-get instead of reading the instructions. But then I installed by running sudo apt-get install winehq-stable:i386 and then downloading the 4.3.4 deb and using the gdebi-gtk installer, then repeated using the 4.4 deb.

I see that the download version has been rolled back to 4.3.4.
