It looks like you don't have the libsqlite3 package, and maybe sqllite3 and libqt5sql5 packages, either.

When you say upgrade, you mean fresh install, yes?

I only ask because the official Mint upgrade path hasn't yet been released, and I'm concerned that if you followed any unofficial upgrade instructions on the web then that may have caused or contributed to your issue.

Thanks for the reply Buffy. I tried installing all 3 of the packages you mentioned. Here's how it went:

Code: Select all

Hi hydrurga. When I say upgraded, I mean I followed these instructions: https://www.linuxtechi.com/how-to-upgra ... 20-ulyana/

Ok. That wasn't a particularly good idea, to be honest. Those are generic instructions and may miss some of the fine-tuned adjustments that the Mint team are currently implementing and testing with their imminent upgrade path. Such generic instructions may work for some but not for others.

Did you make an image or snapshot of your system before "upgrading"? You may be able to solve this issue with a bit of rooting around, and it may be the only issue you come across, but it would be much cleaner if you were to revert to before the upgrade and then wait for Mint's official instructions which are only days away. In my opinion, anyway.

Hi hydrurga,

I always back up both my root and home partitions before doing anything remotely like an upgrade. When the official upgrade instructions are posted, I'll restore my root partition backup and see what happens when I follow the official upgrade instructions.

Thanks for your reply.

No problem. If you encounter any issues with your upgrade, do get back on here (it's an interesting concept for me to only restore your root partition so that effectively for a short time before the upgrade you have a "LM19 root partition" with a "LM20-configured home partition [with regards to dot folders and files]" but I'm really conservative with these things)".

All the best.

@Buffy: I installed sqlite and rebooted. Pretty much the same error output when I launch Clementine from the command line. Still, thanks for your input.

Just used the official upgrade and got the same issue.

In Synaptic searched for qsqlite and added the akonadi-backend-sqlite package and dependencies. Started Clementine, took about half a minute to start (looked like it was sorting a new DB file out) and after a full library scan all was well.

Thanks @firu! Installing akonadi-backend-sqlite also worked for me. It was a simple matter of

Code: Select all

sudo apt install akonadi-backend-sqlite 
and after a full library scan I'm listening to Clementine as I type this.

I was going to revert to my 19.3 backup and follow Clem's upgrade instructions(https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/2485), but since everything else works, I don't see why that's necessary now.

Clementine didnt work correctly for me either after a new install of LM20, while Clementine worked smoothly in LM19.2 for me. Then I read that Clementine isnt being actively maintained any longer. Too bad, because I really liked Clementine.

I went back to Vlc, which isnt a good music player either, it still has short "hickups" at the beginning of every track, but at least it plays and the Vlc track hickups were even more terrible before, so there is "progress". Clementine however would take ages to start playing every time I started it in LM20. Perhaps this issue can be solved with the same solution as offered above. I went back to LM19.2 though before I saw this solution offered above.

I am curious if there are more people having difficulties with Clementine functioning properly in LM20?

I noticed the lack of Clementine development last year. I decided to use it cos it's still far better than Rhythmbox (IMHO).

The current version is now 1.4 rc1. First update for 4 years, Ubuntu Developers claiming the glory. Dependencies don't mention the sqlite back end. Could that be part of the issue?

Anyway, working fine now. I'll be keeping a sly eye on future updates. Not holding any breaths though ;)

I found Clementine stopped working after upgrading my 19.3 to 20 and this has sorted it out. Thank you! :)
