Problem launching youtube-dl-gui

As per title. When I launch from the launcher in the main menu there is nothing.

If I launch it from the terminal with “youtube-dl-gui”, I get the following error:

No module named wx

Any ideas anyone?

I installed it from the boutique and I am using ubuntu mate 16.04 64 bit

I think you hit on a bug, I just loaded it up with the same results. @lah7 will need to repair this I think.

@stevecook172001, @anon42388993 I also have this experience and was wondering what the trick was? I have ClipGrab installed witch i believe is similar. Do you have ClipGrab as well? Im wondering if there is a conflict?

Nope, clipgrab not installed.

/usr/bin/youtube-dl-gui/ is executable, but will not launch.

Thanks good to know its not just me with the problem.

The launchpad PPA works.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install youtube-dlg

Thanks v3xx. That worked a treat! I have test run it.

Its more like a work-a-round than a solution :slight_smile:

I maintain the PPA that Software Boutique uses for youtube-dlg. I’ll get it fixed.


I’ve just uploaded fixed packages to the PPA :slight_smile:
