I had Puddletag a few days ago, running on 19.10. Yesterday I upgraded to 20.04, and now I don't have it. Not listed in Software either. What gives?
In fact Puddletag in its present release will not be supported on Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04 as Puddletag needs to be updated to both QT5 and Python 3 (from Qt4 + Python 2).
The relevant bug reports can be seen here:
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS = Qt4 + Python 2 removal #462 A bug report specific to the current Focal Fossa issue of the removal of Puddletag.
- Python 3 #300 The original plea for assistance by the Puddletag developer for assistance porting to Python 3. Note that this a bug report / request from 2016...
Python 2 is of course still available on 20.04 (just not as default) but Puddletag will not work without the Python bindings pyqt4 and friends as well.
Sad days, but a nice replacement for Puddletag exists which works perfectly on 20.04: MusicBrainz Picard...
UPDATE: There's an effort underway to port PuddleTag to PyQt5 & Python 3: https://github.com/keithgg/puddletag/issues/468
For the time being, a working (but unofficial) PuddleTag AppImage can be found here: https://gofile.io/d/4LQICt
More information on the AppImage (and how they got there): https://github.com/keithgg/puddletag/issues/464
After going through iGadget's answers, I followed some links, which lead me to more links, which, lead me to two different AppImages. For simplicity's sake, I decided to upload them both HERE. They are stored together in a single tarball. Extract, execute, and enjoy!
PS: These two files print an awful lot of errors and warnings to the terminal. However, they seem to work nontheless.
