Seems to me that python-pyqt5 is a missing dependency.

To fix ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'sip' remove or comment line #import sip, then add line from PyQt5 import sip. I suppose the same would go for gtk version. But then, some other thing seems not working...

It seems that python-sip should also be listed as a dependency for this.

I get a compile-time error, while running package() :

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "", line 2, in <module>
    from DistUtilsExtra.command import *
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'DistUtilsExtra'

even though package python-distutils-extra (version 2.39-3) is properly installed.

Sorry for the lack of updates here, should work again as intended.

erikzenker: About the error: ValueError: Namespace Unity not available I just commented the line 28 of the file /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/usbcreator/frontends/gtk/ And work just fine.

So I installed this and got, like the others, the " ValueError: Namespace Unity not available" error. I looked a bit in the code and found the problem.


change the line 28 in


except ImportError as e:


except (ImportError, ValueError) as e:


In it checks if the Unity environment (the former Ubuntu desktop environment) is running and therefore calls require_versions('Unity', '7.0') in a try block that has an except block for exceptions of type "ImportError". BUT require_versions ( throws an exception of type ValueError.


I also looked up the current version of usbcreator from upstream ( and there the require_versions check was completely deleted. Maybe it would help to just update this package to the current version of the code instead of wildly patching in it :-)
