Lollypop no longer launches. Can’t listen to my music. I am on Gnome edition, testing. Anyone else experience this issue?
Works fine for me. What is the output running it from the terminal?
Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/bin/lollypop”, line 45, in
from lollypop.application import Application

ValueError: Namespace Handy not available for version 1
When an attempt to launch lollypop from terminal, I get the above text.
What other info can I provide? I forget how to create a good thread.
It’s an issue with the version of libhandy that’s in the repos:
You can install this AUR package; if you have the older version, it won’t even replace it (the older version), but just sit alongside it.
Aha, that’s why I’m not having the same issue. I have
libhandy1 installed as a dependency for other packages.
FYI, there’s a Arch bug report open for it:
libhandy 1.0.0 is in the Arch testing repo right now.
So it’s coming. But until then, that AUR package should work as a temporary fix.
That is the solution then? To wait for the version of libhandy package. Or install it from AUR for the temporary fix.
Think I will wait. Will just listen to Spotify in the meantime.
I suppose you could downgrade Lollypop.
