I can't open Lollypop

I can’t open Lollypop app from both terminal and clicking app icon.

Here is the terminal output when I try to open it. I am new to Arch based distro.

Traceback (most recent call last):

Hello @AMMin :wink:

Is it from the AUR or from the official repo? I can not reproduce your issue with the official package.

$ pamac search --aur lollypop                           
lollypop-stable-git                              1.4.23.r3.g048238b13-1  AUR 
    Music player for GNOME (stable branch)
lollypop-next-git                                1.4.23.r3.g048238b13-1  AUR 
    Music player for GNOME (dev branch)

    Music player for GNOME

As you can see there is the official package in community database.

when I try to install the stable version form AUR, this error message shows up

Is there a special reason why you are not using the lollypop package from the repo?

No, no special reason.

Then use that and the issue should be solved.
