Hello ilbh

Welcome to the forums. Imo you won't find a friendlier bunch of linux users anywhere. Unfortunately as soulseek users we are a rather small subgroup.

Would you please fill in the distro info in your profile? It really helps.

Would I be right in guessing your using something debian based, such as ubuntu? Debian names pyGTK differently causing some confusion.

Are you determined to use nicotine? Currently there seems to be more developement going on with this;
It's the app I'm using. Looks great in kde.
