Musicbox extention not visible in web gui

Hello!

The webgui extension is visible nowhere within the default mopidy gui or by going to the musicbox_webclient/ url extention directly.

CONTEXT:

I have just installed the musicbox on ubuntu 19.10 Server (on a raspberry pi 4 device)…
sudo python3 -m pip install Mopidy-MusicBox-Webclient

I have made sure that the following…
[musicbox_webclient]
enabled = true
musicbox = false
websocket_host =
websocket_port =
on_track_click = PLAY_ALL

… is in the conf files
the one under ~/.config/mopidy
and the one under /etc/mopidy

I can successfully run mopidy and view it on any device in my local network
/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/mopidy/ext.py:202: PkgResourcesDeprecationWarning: Parameters to load are deprecated. Call .resolve and .require separately.
extension_class = entry_point.load(require=False)

However, the webgui extension is visible nowhere within the default mopidy gui or by going to the musicbox_webclient/ url extention directly (as seen below).

Any advice on making this music player work would be very much appreciated. Thank you!

Install the latest 3.x version of Mopidy from apt.mopidy.com by following the instructions in our document at https://docs.mopidy.com/en/latest/installation/debian/. That version is a Python 3 compatible release and will work with the Python 3 version of Mopidy-Musicbox-webclient you have installed.

You are currently running Mopidy v2.2.3, that’s an old Python 2 version, perhaps installed from the Ubuntu software repositories? That version only works with Python 2 versions of extensions. None of the Python 2 versions will see any updates. You probably don’t want that.

This is great. I will try this today and confirm. Thanks!

Hello!

I have gotten around to installing a mopidy once again with a fresh ubuntu 18.04.4 on raspberry pi 4 following the exact instructions indicated, as you listed above.

I then installed musicbox and soundcloud as indicated in their respective pages.

Any mopidy command, however, brings up the following:
ERROR: Mopidy requires Python 2.7, but found 3.6.9.

I have tried what was indicated in these pages, but to no avail


Any idea at all what can be done here? Any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Ubuntu 18.04 is too old. From our install docs:

The packages in the apt.mopidy.com archive are built for:

  • Debian 10 (Buster) , which also works for Raspbian Buster and Ubuntu 19.10 and newer.

Oops, thanks for pointing this out!

I am back at ground zero (ubuntu 19.10)
However, following the standard instructions outlined here installs v2.3.2 by default. I haven’t found a way to install 3.0.2…

Might it have to do with what version of python is being detected? I have 2 and 3 installed:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~/.config/mopidy$ ls -la /usr/bin/python
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 7 Oct 10 11:32 /usr/bin/python -> python2

ls -la /usr/bin/python2
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Oct 10 11:32 /usr/bin/python2 -> python2.7

ls -la /usr/bin/python3
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 9 Oct  2  2019 /usr/bin/python3 -> python3.7

Nope, python 2 and 3 installed is normal, it’s fine. The instructions are definitely correct. You need to make sure you are using apt.mopidy.com. Installing that old versions is exactly what happens if you do not use apt.mopidy.com

Hi there and thanks for the quick response(s).
Excuse me if I am missing something completely obvious here, but I am still unable to figure this out. Please excuse my computational noobness

This is what I’m doing, as instructed in the instructions you cited:

ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ wget -q -O - https://apt.mopidy.com/mopidy.gpg | sudo apt-key add -
OK
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo wget -q -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mopidy.list https://apt.mopidy.com/buster.list
ubuntu@ubuntu:~$ sudo apt update
Hit:1 https://apt.mopidy.com buster InRelease

There seems to be something going wrong here : 'https://apt.mopidy.com buster InRelease' doesn't support architecture 'arm64'

Does this have to do with this being a raspberry pi? Anyway, it’s clearly impacting the install i.e. the version that gets installed is still 2.3.2…

Ohhh. I am sorry. I lost the details of what you were doing along the way and forgot this was all on a raspberry pi. Even though you said it in a couple of your posts. We don’t provide 64bit arm binaries it seems. Not sure what it would take for us to do that.

You’ll have to go down the installing from source route in the docs, and that should work! Again, apologies for missing that.

Thanks,
I had already tried this, but just gave it another shot:

I appear to be having the same issue as was brought up here:

the mopidy command isn’t being found.

ubuntu@ubuntu:/bin$ mopidy
-bash: /usr/bin/mopidy: No such file or directory

Is there something I should be doing to make this work after install here?

Ok nevermind, running mopidy as python3 mopidy

The correct version is finally installed and running!
