Recently I upgraded my Debian and main menu does not run anymore. So, from command line I tried to execute alacarte.
And got exception:
Traceback (most recent call last): File "/usr/bin/alacarte", line 23, in from Alacarte.MainWindow import MainWindow File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/MainWindow.py", line 32, in from Alacarte.MenuEditor import MenuEditor File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/MenuEditor.py", line 23, in from Alacarte import util File "/usr/share/alacarte/Alacarte/util.py", line 25, in from gi._glib import GError
Seems like module got missing, removed or installation broken. As it is the first time (I am running multiple virtualbox instances on multiple computers) it seems like common problem.
I found that it is fixed on Ubuntu: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/alacarte/+bug/1086369
I also found it at debian bug list:
So, solution was easy enough- just re installed alacarte:
$ sudo apt-get install alacarte
