I've tried many things. here is what the terminal can tell:

dvir@Yam:~$ playonlinux
Looking for python... 2.7.5+ - selected
[main] Message: PlayOnLinux (4.2.2) is starting
[clean_tmp] Message: Cleaning temp directory

  File "/usr/share/playonlinux/python/configure.py", line 807, in change_program
    if(self.current_sel == "default"):
AttributeError: 'MainWindow' object has no attribute 'current_sel'

Also, when trying to open "Configure" for my game, I get an error "PlayOnLinux encourd a problem [...]" (I use Hebrew, so I can't tell the exact title of error-window, but that's what it means)

I tried reinstalling, and also removing and installing. I'm thinking about doing "Purge".
Any ideas? Solutions?

Thank you all for your great help! ^^

Yes, do an apt-get purge playonlinux
Do this for Wine as well.

Then go ahead and install Wine first, then install PlayOnLinux by downloading the deb package and double-clicking it.

Let us know if it works better after that.

Python should already be installed or maybe gets installed with PlayOnLinux, I don't remember.

Are you using 64-bit Linux Distro?

Thanks for answering :D (Sorry for answering only now).

But, if I'm purging, wont it delete my virtual drives too?
Purge is designed to delete "Everything related" to the program, no?

And Im using a 32bit, thanks (:

Also, I can install another game/programs with PlayOnLinux.
And If I do so, I can open the "Configure" window without getting error.

And, If im choosing the bad virtual drive there (The one who stopped working).
I can run the exe in the virtual drive, and it'll work just like I "Double-clicked" the game.

So maybe I need another solution?

did you type sudo apt-get purge playonlinux
If PlayOnLinux isn't "purging" then you can always manually delete the .PlayOnLinux folder.

If you just have a bad "virtual drive" then you can manually delete it and start over with a new "virtual drive"
No harm in that

Go to: /home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix
Then delete the suspected "virtual drive" that is giving you problems.

Now start over with the installation in a new virtual drive.

I honestly think its something with Python. You might want to do an update or install of Python to make sure its installed properly.

Sorry again. Really.

So my problem is the drive, not PlayOnLinux.

Can I fix the drive without deleting it?
How do I update/install python?

And, will purging delete the drives or not? (General question).

Thank.

How do I update python?

No problem. you don't need to apologize :)

If the problem is your virtual drive, then you can just go to the wineprefix folder and deleted it....
/home/username/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix
But you will have to start over with the game installation/download again.

Are you doing a "manual" installation or using one of the PlayOnLinux provide installs?

I know I did it again, I just like getting busy with more things. Thanks for keep helping.

So, I think I'll just reinstall it if needed.

I have my saves.

 

I Installed it manually, I dont remember having this game in the list.


I've "Upgraded" to another pc now. So anyway I'll have to reinstall ^^
("Upgrade" because it's 1.5GB RAM instaed of 1 ^^ , And a DualCore instaed of Pentium4 ^^ ).

Thanks again booman.

Great, let us know how PlayOnLinux behaves this time.

Make sure to install Wine first.  You won't be using it but the "default" virtual drive is based on the Wine installation.
