Hello and welcome @bzdr

It is best to post a copy of your version information.

Go to Help / About Kicad / Copy version information (top right hand corner of opened window).

To me it looks like the problem has nothing to do with KiCad directly. There’s some library incompatibility in the system’s libraries, in wxWidgets python bindings.

Wasn’t the minimum python bumped to at least 3.8 for kicad6 ?

No, it’s 3.6 even in 6.99.

You can try starting a normal python interpreter in a terminal window, then from wx import core. Does it throw the same error or does it succeed?

Application: KiCad PCB Editor

Version: 6.99.0-unknown, debug build

Libraries:
wxWidgets 3.1.5
FreeType 2.8.0
HarfBuzz 1.7.5
FontConfig 2.13.0
libcurl/7.29.0 NSS/3.53.1 zlib/1.2.7 libidn/1.28 libssh2/1.8.0

Platform: Linux 3.10.0-1160.el7.x86_64 x86_64, 64 bit, Little endian, wxGTK, ,

Build Info:
Date: Jun 14 2022 19:36:43
wxWidgets: 3.1.5 (wchar_t,wx containers) GTK+ 3.22
Boost: 1.78.0
OCC: 7.6.0
Curl: 7.29.0
ngspice: 31
Compiler: GCC 9.3.0 with C++ ABI 1013

Build settings:
KICAD_USE_OCC=ON
KICAD_USE_EGL=ON
KICAD_SPICE=ON
KICAD_STDLIB_DEBUG=OFF
KICAD_STDLIB_LIGHT_DEBUG=OFF
KICAD_SANITIZE_ADDRESS=OFF
KICAD_SANITIZE_THREADS=OFF

it does succeed

in a terminal window, then from wx import core do succeed , it’s any other problems?

The error in your first post suggests that the wxPython library you have doesn’t match the wxWidgets library, although they seem to match on versions. How did you get those libs, through system package manager, pip, manually compiled?

Save this to a test.py

import wx

app = wx.App()
wx.MessageBox("wx is working correctly")

and run it with python3 test.py, you should see a popup.
