Linux Mint 20 Ulyana and KXStudio issue

Post by pzar »

Hi,

I have an issue with run the KXStudio after upgrade to the Linux Mint 20 Ulyana.
Trying open 'carla' I see such info like below

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/carla/carla", line 22, in <module>
    from carla_host import *
  File "/usr/share/carla/carla_host.py", line 34, in <module>
    from PyQt4.QtCore import qCritical, QEventLoop, QFileInfo, QModelIndex, QPointF, QTimer
ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'PyQt4'
I tried to install one more time the KXStudio using this manual viewtopic.php?t=178572
Unfortunately in point

Code: Select all

add-apt-repository -y ppa:kxstudio-debian/kxstudio
is info 'this PPA do not support focal'

Maybe someone of you know how to solve this issue.
Thank you in advance for help

no one will help you with an outside ppa you need to do this on your own. there are quite many ppa that go dead and left unmaintained like the gm10 tools if you follow linux mint.
my suggestion is do not use kxstudio, it hasn't been updated for the new 20.04 ubuntu. i like and have kxstudio in my mint 17.3 but i ran into some of the issues you describe in your post and gave up.

Hi trytip,

Thank you for response. You're right, the KX is nor free of troubles, but the Catia patchbay is really nice, at least for me ;-)
I tried to install the Patchage, but somehow cannot connect to Jack server.

Anyway, after remove all jack + qjackctl and install from the scratch, the Jack, Catia, Carla are working fine again.
Installed from available repo in the Mint distribution ;-)

The kxstudio-repos_10.0.3_all.deb package should support Mint 20 (Ubuntu 20.04)

Were you following older directions maybe? See here for the current instructions.

EDIT: I now see you were following ancient instructions. The above link should get you working fully with it again if you're interested in trying it.
