Solution for error: Xubuntu 14.10 + RabbitVCS + Thunar

I installed latest RabbitVCS from official PPA repository.

When I tried run Thunar, received exception:

 thunar:13281): thunarx-python-WARNING **: g_module_open libpython failed: /usr/lib/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 Traceback (most recent call last):

 File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gobject/", line 26, in

 File "/usr/share/thunarx-python/extensions/", line 35, in 
 import thunarx
 ImportError: No module named thunarx
rabbitvcs thunar-icon

There is simple solution



  1. Install thunarx-python package
     sudo apt-get install thunarx-python
  2. Create simlink
    sudo ln -s "/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/" "/usr/lib/"
  3. Done, you can run your thunar with rabbitvcs extension now.
