I am using Ubuntu 12.04.

I installed PlayOnLinux by adding their repository to Software Sources. My PlayOnLinux version is 4.1.2

When I try to install a program the install menu is totally empty.enter image description here

So, I tried running PlayonLinux from terminal and this the output I got.

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/playonlinux/python/install.py", line 315, in search
self.apps = codecs.open(Variables.playonlinux_rep+"/configurations/listes /search",'r',"utf-8")
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/codecs.py", line 881, in open
file = builtin.open(filename, mode, buffering)
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/karthik/.PlayOnLinux//configurations/listes/search'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/share/playonlinux/python/install.py", line 434, in AddApps
self.apps = codecs.open(Variables.playonlinux_rep+"/configurations/listes/4",'r',"utf-8")
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/codecs.py", line 881, in open
file = builtin.open(filename, mode, buffering)
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/home/karthik/.PlayOnLinux//configurations/listes/4'

I searched the playonlinux forums and found a discussion which matched the problem. Eventhough, I followed the instructions there, the problem did not get solved.

Also, I am behind an authenticated proxy server. I filled the proxy server details in the PlayonLinux preferences.

I would really like get PlayonLinux working. Thanks in advance.

This sounds like a bug. But also, you've got a problem there, since its in the PlayOnLinux software from their repository, the Ubuntu bugs team cant fix it. Also, verify that /home/karthik/.PlayOnLinux//configurations/listes/4 is a valid path in your system, its erroring on that. –  Thomas W. Jul 2 '12 at 12:09

I uninstalled the program from PlayOnLinux repo and installed the program from the official repo. The program in the official repo seems to be working properly.
