I have experienced the following error while enabling Gufw on my Ubuntu 16.04. I have experienced the following error while enabling Gufw on my Ubuntu 16.04. “ImportError: No module named gi”

 
Traceback (most recent call last):

You can fix this issue easily by installing python-gobject package on your Ubuntu machine. Run the following command on terminal.

 
sudo apt install python-gobject

Once the installation completes, please open the Gufw again. Run the following command.

 
gufw

and provide the password. The issue should be solved.

That’s it!
