I have problems starting playonlinux and wonder whether you could help.

I have playonlinux v. 4.2.12. Yet when trying to start the programme via the terminal I get the following message:

Looking for python... 2.7.12 - wxversion(s): 3.0-gtk2
/usr/share/playonlinux/bash/find_python: Zeile 58:  9558 Ungültiger 
Maschinenbefehl   "$POL_PYTHON" "$POLDIR/python/check_python.py"
failed tests

failed tests
Looking for python2.6...

Please install python before trying to run this program

According to the output of the terminal it seems that python ist´t installed - which simply is not true. Here are my python versions:

ii  python                                        2.7.11-1                                     
amd64        interactive high-level object-oriented language (default 
version)
ii  python2.7                                   2.7.12-
1ubuntu0~16.04.1      amd64        Interactive high-level object-
oriented language (version 2.7)
ii  python3                                      3.5.1-3                                       
amd64        interactive high-level object-oriented language (default 
python3 version)
ii  python3.5                                   3.5.2-2ubuntu0~16.04.3        
amd64        Interactive high-level object-oriented language (version 
3.5)

I´ve already looked on page PlayOnLinux won't start but nothing worked. Neither did the workaround presented on Playonlinux won't start. Ubuntu 16.04. Is there any way to get playonlinux started?

Tnx a lot. Rosika

P.S.: my system: Linux/Lubuntu 16.04.3 LTS, 64bit
