FFADO mixer - Ubuntu Studio 18.10 "SOLVED"

Postby Drazen » Tue Jan 08, 2019 5:34 pm

Hi,

I'am running Ubuntu Studio 18.10 with Focusrite Saffire PRO40 using FFADO.
I have blacklisted ALSA module for snd_dice chip, installed KX repos for plugins and Cadence to control Jack (installation of Cadence removed Ubuntu studio controls) .....and everything worked fine until today... I can't open FFADO mixer ... in Terminal I get this message:


Code: Select all

[podroom@podroom-desktop:~$ ffado-mixer
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/ffado-mixer-qt4/ffado/import_pyqt.py", line 35, in <module>
    from PyQt4.QtCore import QByteArray, QObject, QTimer, Qt, pyqtSignal, QString, pyqtSlot
ImportError: cannot import name 'QString'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/ffado-mixer", line 31, in <module>
    from ffado.ffadowindow import *
  File "/usr/share/ffado-mixer-qt4/ffado/ffadowindow.py", line 27, in <module>
    from ffado.config import *
  File "/usr/share/ffado-mixer-qt4/ffado/config.py", line 35, in <module>
    from ffado.import_pyqt import *
  File "/usr/share/ffado-mixer-qt4/ffado/import_pyqt.py", line 39, in <module>
    from PyQt5 import QtGui, Qt, QtCore, Qt, QtWidgets, uic
RuntimeError: the PyQt5.QtCore and PyQt4.QtCore modules both wrap the QObject class



What to do, this problem is beyond my linux knowledge.
Please help

Best

SOLVED

I have installed "ffado-mixer-qt4" from kx repos and now everything runs fine.
