Lutris does not run/open
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Decided to give Lutris a try, however clicking on the launcher in the Budgie menu does nothing. Running the command 'lutris' in the terminal gives:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/lutris", line 47, in <module>
    from lutris.config import check_config  # , register_handler
  File "/usr/lib/python3.5/site-packages/lutris/", line 6, in <module>
    import yaml
ImportError: No module named 'yaml'

As far as I can see from the software center, yaml 0.1.5 is installed, and I also tried removing it and reinstalling it a couple times, but it gives the same result.

Install pyyaml and let me know if that fixes the issue.

Install pyyaml and let me know if that fixes the issue.

pyyaml is already installed according to the software center. I recall seeing it as a dependency that was installed alongside Lutris.

Just tried removing pyyaml (which also removes Lutris), and reinstalling both of them one at a time starting with pyyaml. No change as far as I can see, still gives the same result in the Terminal.

Ah right, they changed over to python3. Let me enable pyyaml python3 real quick.

Lutris starts up and runs fine now, as far as I can tell. Superb! :)
