    PyQT error when running application Picard


    Hello all,

    I've installed Picard using YaST. For some reason I knew there was something wrong since I wasn't able to find the app GUI. So I decided to simply run the app from the terminal, and this is what I got:

    Code:
    marianox@linux-l1y8:~> picard
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/picard", line 2, in <module>
        from picard.tagger import main; main('/usr/share/locale', True)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/picard/tagger.py", line 21, in <module>
        from PyQt4 import QtGui, QtCore
    ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/PyQt4/QtGui.so: undefined symbol: _ZN16QFileSystemModel5eventEP6QEvent
    My PyQT is up to date, I guess...

    Any help?

    Looks like you might have a mismatch of python versions you have 2.5 and it may be that picard may expect something else. Generally the RPM will pick this up but if it has not been configured correctly it may miss a version match. Did you get the RPM from a Suse repository?

    No, I think I've downloaded it from Pacman repository.

    Pacman is a Suse repository ie all the RPM packages are configured for Suse.

    Did you download direct or did you use the Yast-Software management?

    If direct download make sure you got the one for the your version of Suse.

    You might want to contact Pacman and/or the development site and report the problem there since it appears it might be a version conflict between pacard and python

    Awwww =(

    And is there another tagging application for Suse? Ii worked perfectly on Mint.

    I've installed it both ways, using YaST and the 'one click download'.

    Maybe install the tarball?

    Installing the tarball would mean that you would be compiling from source. You would need the required language packages and possible other things. There should be a readme file in the tar file that should give reasonably complete instructions on doing the compile and it's requirements.

    Note that there is some downsides to compiling from source in a RPM system such as Suse. The installation happens outside of the RPM manger thus the removing of the program would require knowing where all the files are stored and manually deleting them. Also no automatic updates.

    You should report the problem to the developers and the packagers (Pacman in this case) since it may be a packaging problem. That is what it means about community. Help the guys that are doing the work fix things and make better product.

    Installed Picard but it gives an error.

    Here's what I get when I try to run it:

    Code:
    arianox@linux-l1y8:~> picard
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/bin/picard", line 2, in <module>
        from picard.tagger import main; main('/usr/share/locale', True)
      File "/usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/picard/tagger.py", line 21, in <module>
        from PyQt4 import QtGui, QtCore
    ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/PyQt4/QtGui.so: undefined symbol: _ZN16QFileSystemModel5eventEP6QEvent
    marianox@linux-l1y8:~>
