How to Install Puddletag (Python3, Qt5 Port) in Ubuntu 20.04

Spread the love

Since Ubuntu 20.04 has dropped Qt4 and old Python2 libraries, Puddletag audio tag editor is no longer available to install.
There are a few alternatives (e.g., easytag and kid3 tag editor) available in main Ubuntu repositories.
If you persist in installing Puddletag in Ubuntu 20.04, the development of PyQt5 & Python 3 branch has started. And I’ve uploaded it into PPA for testing. For any issue, report to this page.

Install Puddletag Python3 & PyQt5 version:
The new branch is still in development. Not all functions are implemented yet. And there may have bugs. Use it at your own risk!
If you still want to install the previous Python2 & Qt4 package, leave a comment and I’ll write in another tutorial.
1.) Open terminal either from system application menu or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard. When terminal opens, run command to add the PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps
Type user password (no asterisk feedback) when it prompts and hit Enter to continue.

2.) Then refresh system package cache and install the editor via command:
sudo apt update

sudo apt install puddletag
Uninstall Puddletag & PPA:
To remove the PPA, either go to Software & Updates > Other Software, or run command:
sudo add-apt-repository –remove ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/apps
And remove puddletag by running command:
sudo apt remove –autoremove puddletag
