Thank you very much for any help!!

What versions are we dealing with here? Of musicbox and of Mopidy’s local
extensions (run ‘mopidy deps’). What local backend are you using? Sql?

I think there are similar issues already on here regarding an old version
of local-sql. The fix is to upgrade it but you need to be a bit careful at
the moment due to the very recent release of non-backwards compatible
Mopidy v1.0.

So if upgrading local-sql is the answer, think you’d need to upgrade to
the last version of the extension that didn’t require Mopidy 1.0. I’m not
in a position to look that up right now.

Your local apt cache is outdated, so you need to update it before installing anything. To fix the installation of locales, run sudo apt-get update first, then sudo apt-get install locales.

As for the latest Mopidy-Local-SQLite version that works with Mopidy 0.19.5, which is the version Pi Musicbox comes with, run sudo pip install Mopidy-Local-SQLite==0.9.3.

Dear Jodal,

thank you very much - browsing the folders is working fine now. This was very helpful for me.


Did you install locales or upgrade Mopidy-Local-SQLite?

I did both and be able to browse the folders now.

Thank you very much once again!


Many thanks! That was just the right information at the right time!

Me too, I did both and now the folders aren’t empty anymore. However, the names contain question marks instead of umlauts (äöü etc.). Could someone please point me in the right direction on how to fix this?
