Have been using Hypnotix for a while with no issue. Fresh install of Arco and hypnotix is kaput .. Any help is much appreciated as this is an app I cannot do without !!

Uninstall then Reinstall - no go.
Removed MPV and Reinstalled MPV - no go.

Code: Select all

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/hypnotix/hypnotix.py", line 25, in <module>
    import mpv
  File "/usr/lib/hypnotix/mpv.py", line 531, in <module>
    _handle_func('mpv_detach_destroy',          [],                                         None, errcheck=None)
  File "/usr/lib/hypnotix/mpv.py", line 478, in _handle_func
    func = getattr(backend, name)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.10/ctypes/__init__.py", line 387, in __getattr__
    func = self.__getitem__(name)
  File "/usr/lib/python3.10/ctypes/__init__.py", line 392, in __getitem__
    func = self._FuncPtr((name_or_ordinal, self))
AttributeError: /usr/lib/libmpv.so.2: undefined symbol: mpv_detach_destroy

AUR packages

you check the AUR page

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/hypnotix

See if anyone reports anything

check if there is a git version - is that working?

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/hypnotix-git

Check out the source

https://github.com/linuxmint/hypnotix

That is what I will do now.

And sometimes it is as simple as

did you update?
and
did you reboot?

Choosing USA and choosing CNN seems to work

my own tv channels from Belgium have a spinning wheel or something else from the theme you choose.

A good test would be to see if it is still working on Linux Mint
as it is built for that.
I have no time to test that.

I played around with some builds etc of different apps

no solution for you

Option 1: check back later see if someone reports anything and wait for updates

Option 2: take action - report on github/aur

I had the same problem.
Issue on Github exists and helped me.
https://github.com/linuxmint/hypnotix/issues/254

The workaround from github:
replace mpv_detach_destroy with mpv_destroy in /usr/lib/hypnotix/mpv.py

The AUR page have the same solution
