Are you using a distro with some sort of package management? This is probably easier for you to apt or use rpm or cast or something.

I find the easiest thing is to just save the *.torrent link to disk, then run
btdownloadgui.py *.torrent
in the console.

Something's obviously wrong with your wxpython install -
I would recommend downloading the source from www.wxpython.org and compiling it yourself. This has always worked fine for me.
