Topic: Install picard-0.9.0beta1 on Fedora 8


I just installed picardQT on Fedora 8, but I had to change a few files to make it work:

First it complained about "AttributeError: LowEventPriority"
According to … ml/qt.html this should be "-1" so I hardcoded this value
sudo find /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/picard/ -name "*.py" -exec sed -i 's/QtCore.Qt.LowEventPriority/-1/g' {} \;

The next Error was
TypeError: too many arguments to QCoreApplication.postEvent(), 2 at most expected

so I removed the last parameter of this calls in

After this it seems to work - I only got some "invalid new backstep" on the commandline and when adding a folder, subfolders are ignored


Re: Install picard-0.9.0beta1 on Fedora 8

This is because PicardQt now requires PyQt 4.3.x

If you are in a daring mood, you can get the latest PyQt build for Fedora from Koji, here: … ageID=5093
This does, of course, require the latest sip package, found here: … kageID=208

Once you get those installed, Picard should work out of the box. Hope that helps! (And here's to hoping that those new packages make it into Fedora's main repos soon so we don't have to rely on "testing"/"development" packages)
