Mopidy Discourse

Mopidy startup error MacOS 10.15.4

attempt to run mopidy, i receive the following error:

ERROR: A GObject based library was not found.

Mopidy requires GStreamer to work. GStreamer is a C library with a
number of dependencies itself, and cannot be installed with the regular
Python tools like pip.

Please see for
instructions on how to install the required dependencies.

attempted fix suggested HERE

[quote=“troyxmccall, post:3, topic:2387, full:true”]
found the culprit

needed to

brew reinstall gst-python --without-python --with-python@2

receive the following error

Error: invalid option: --without-python

Any thoughts?

I have never used macOS or brew but that workaround looks like it’s trying to install something with Python 2, which may have worked in 2018 but won’t work now. Ths current version of Mopidy requires Python 3.

I have the same issue. Did you resolve it in the end?
