Question Virtual Machine Manager problem


Hi all of you out there,

I installed the Virtual Machine Manager using this guide:

https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/1727

I then created a virtual hard drive:
Code:
qemu-img create -f raw /home/janv/qemu/ubuntu.img 80G

Formatting '/home/janv/qemu/ubuntu.img', fmt=raw size=85899345920
When I try to create a new virtual machine I get the following error:
Code:
Unable to complete install: 'Failed to find user record for uid '64055''
I use Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya on a 64-bit HP EliteBook which has an i5 with virtualization support

More trouble . . .
When I start the virtual machine manager I get:
Code:
Unable to connect to libvirt.

Verify that:
 - The 'libvirt-bin' package is installed
 - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started
 - You are member of the 'libvirtd' group

Details:
Unable to connect to libvirt.

Verify that:
 - The 'libvirt-bin' package is installed
 - The 'libvirtd' daemon has been started
 - You are member of the 'libvirtd' group

Libvirt URI is: qemu:///system

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtManager/connection.py", line 903, in _do_open
    self._backend.open(self._do_creds_password)
  File "/usr/share/virt-manager/virtinst/connection.py", line 148, in open
    open_flags)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/libvirt.py", line 105, in openAuth
    if ret is None:raise libvirtError('virConnectOpenAuth() failed')
libvirtError: Failed to connect socket to '/var/run/libvirt/libvirt-sock': No such file or directory
Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance.]

I don't directly use qemu. I use virtualbox. It's the easy way.
