Mopidy Gmusic install

I’m having problems install the gmusic extension for Mopidy. Here’s what I try:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ pip --version
pip 1.1 from /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages (python 2.7)
pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo pip install mopidy-gmusic

Is this the right version of pip? I’m using a Raspberry Pi 2 with Raspbian Wheezy installed.

First of all, you should really be using Raspbian Jessie, not Wheezy. Jessie was released in April, so security support for Wheezy will end the upcoming April. Also, the software in Wheezy at least 3.5 years old at this point in time, as Wheezy development was frozen in June 2012.

My theory of what happens here is that the pip you get when running sudo pip is actually using Python 3. You can check by running sudo pip --version and look at the parens at the end of the line you get there.

If that is right, since you’re running Wheezy, your Python 3 is 3.2.3, while Python 3 only got support for the u'some string' syntax in 3.3. Also worth noting is that currently Mopidy only works with Python 2.

I believe this will help you, as it makes sure to run Pip with Python 2.7:

sudo python2.7 -m pip install mopidy-gmusic
