It doesn't run properly when I click and closes automatically.


This post on reddit says that it's because of a broken dependency and the fix for that is:

sudo apt-get install python-gobject

After typing that in a terminal, I'm now able to start GUFW.

    python-gi works, too. – JulianLai Apr 24 '16 at 17:43

I have installed it today (2016.05.06) and everything works fine.

I'm using GUFW version 16.04.1, Ubuntu 16.04 with kernel 4.4.0-21-generic.

I already had the package python-gi installed at version 3.20.0-0ubuntu1


Had this problem in Debian Stretch RC3. Basic setup. What fixed it was net-tools package.

sudo apt-get install net-tools

    Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Would you please expand this answer a bit? Why would the net-tools package help, and how would the OP go about installing / using it? – anonymous2 May 2 '17 at 20:05
