If you mean terminal windows, that has gone with the latest release
0.8.1.d, see

This is a misinterpretation, SPE failed because of something else. (As
would have become clear if you would have run SPE in the debugging mode
'python --debug'.) The version number displayed is the one on
which SPE is being developed, not the one required (displayed on
webpage). AFAIK SPE runs fine with wxPython I run SPE myself
on the same release of Ubuntu as you (Breezy ?)  and it now works very

>From the SPE news blog:

SPE was for the first time tested on and improved for Ubuntu (and
hopefully so for Linux in general). I adapted SPE such that it can ran
out of the box of an archive (zip or tar.gz). This has the advantage
that Linux (but also Mac and Windows) don't have to install SPE anymore
but can just run it out of a folder or USB stick, provided the right
version of wxPython (2.6) is installed on the system as it is always
the case with Ubuntu boxes. If you want to install SPE in this way, use
the distribution:

   1. uninstall previous version of SPE (VERY IMPORTANT, otherwise SPE
won't run)
   2. download and unpack the archive
   3. run SPE with 'python'

If it doesn't work, let me know privately.
