I downloaded and installed ubuntu-launcher-folder after reading a recommendation on OMG Ubuntu and it refuses to run.

I tried to start it up via the terminal and got this...

/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/unity_launcher_folders/init.py:21: PyGIWarning: Gtk was imported without specifying a version first. Use gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0') before import to ensure that the right version gets loaded. from gi.repository import Gtk, Gdk, GdkPixbuf, Pango, Gio Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/unity-launcher-folders", line 46, in import unity_launcher_folders File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/unity_launcher_folders/init.py", line 23, in from generateIcon import GenerateIcon File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/unity_launcher_folders/generateIcon.py", line 17, in import Image ImportError: No module named Image

can someone please help me?

  • Exactly where did you get the package from? – doug Jul 10 '17 at 22:55
  • it was an OMG Ubuntu link – Beulah Jul 11 '17 at 0:21
  • Well that's less than informative. If it was from here - launchpad.net/~asukhovatkin/+archive/ubuntu/… than it was made for 14.04 & likely would have issues with later Ubuntu releases. Take a look at this thread, ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2325175 comment #5 shows expicitly how to fix for 16.04. Maybe that'll work in 17.04 or point you in right direction.. – doug Jul 11 '17 at 0:27

  • Edit:, see it worked, great.. (- the package you got was basically same as ppa, same author, ect. – doug Jul 11 '17 at 0:44
