Pip command not found


#1

When I try to install skills on Picroft using msm, I am seeing;
"pip command not found… blah… blah… "
This was a fresh install from the site. but I have since done a “apt-get upgrade”
How to I fix this?


#2

Just to confirm @a_user, when you say this was a fresh install from the site, do you mean that you downloaded the Picroft disk image, burned that to a Micro SD card then put that in an RPi 3?


#3

Hi Kathy
Yes I downloaded the zip , unzipped it and then used etcher to write it to the sd card, which I then inserted into my brand new Pi 3 :slight_smile:

I have now actually used apt-get to install python-pip after the magic interwebs said that was the solution… at least the error now goes away, but the skill still dosen’t work ( Subsonic-media)


#4

Thanks for the update a_user - are you able to provide your mycroft-skills.log file and I can take a look at why subsonic-media isn’t working?


#5

Yep… It is 7 Mb though… How can I get it to you here? I can call it a jpg :slight_smile:


#6

hahahah. Any chance you can grep it for subsonic?
That should reduce the file size.


#7

here is the last bit… I tried the utterance “play kate bush” whicgh should have triggered it , but didn’t

Thanks for posting that, @a_user.

What I can see immediately from this error;

is that there is a syntax error in the Python code. So I looked at init.py in the subsonic-skill line 38 and found;

try:
    from mycroft.skills.audioservice import AudioService
except Exception, e:
    from mycroft.util import play_mp3
    AudioService = None

I suspect that your Audio Service is not started?

If you type ps -aux | grep mycroft, what is listed?

Best, Kathy

#12

OK, thanks for posting that @a_user, I am out of ideas.
@forslund, sorry to bug you on this one - other thoughts on what to try to troubleshoot here?

Best, Kathy


#13

I have fiddled around the edges on this, but I am a child in the woods :slight_smile:
I have noticed a few issues with this picroft with some stuff not working as expected, I can wander over to Mattermost if you want…


#14

Hi @a_user,

I’m not quite sure what you’re current main issue is.

The subsonic_media skill seem to have some issues with python3.

except Exception, e:

is quite old syntax and has been depricated. The correct syntax would be

except Exception as e:

Regarding pip:

as of mycroft 8.2.6 we moved to python3 and with that to a virtualenv based install. This means the pip that mycroft/msm will use is not the system level one, instead it’ll use
/opt/venvs/mycroft-core/bin/pip (technically it won’t be that command either but a python line importing pip)

Hope this made things slightly more clear :slight_smile:
/Åke


#15

Fair enough. I am just a normal user, and not a developer :slight_smile:
My problem is that I couldn’t get a number of skills working, but I didn’t realise that the skill needs to be updated to Python3.
As a “dumb” user, I looked at the skills list here


and assumed that “GOOD” still meant good. LOL!

I guess I need to create some issues for some skill developers : )

thanks for responding


#16

An easy mistake to make :wink:

The developers are currently scrambling to get the skills updated. A list of the resubmitted and vetted skills can be seen in the mycroft-skills repo


#17

@forslund I see a similar type of error on a RPi install.

In the mycroft-audio log;

Those are optional audio services that can be setup if desired. so it’s ok that they fail.


#19

True, but in my case (and probably more users with audio problems) I don want to use “mpg123” as audio backend for those type of media.

Most skills that will play stuff other than WAV by MyCroft default uses;

“play_mp3_cmdline” : “mg123 %1”

That would be fine on a system with only one sound card. However if you have multiple (USB) sound cards and for instance want MyCroft to play though one audio device, but other software through another you can specify which pulseaudio output sink to use.

However the issue with mpg123 is that it does not have that witch for selecting a pulseaudio sink. So for it to work and accepting a name specified sink you need to change it to a player that do accept named sinks;

“play_mp3_cmdline”: “mplayer -ao pulse::alsa_output.platform-soc_audio.analog-stereo %1”

Above is for instance to tell mycroft to use the analog-stereo (headphone plug) on the RPi. But you can for instance tell it to use any named sink like that.

With the following commands you can figure out wich sinks you have;

pulseaudio -D
pacmd list-sinks | egrep “index|name:”

This will give output like;

  • index: 0
    name: <alsa_output.ANY-USB-TYPE-OF-NAME.analog-stereo>
    index: 1
    name: <alsa_output.platform-soc_audio.analog-stereo>

If for instance I would like to use my USB soundcard as default, yet tell MyCroft to use the headphone jack for all it’s playing. I could send the SOC as shown above.

(If I make any sense)

Anyhow: Typing out my notes of how I installed pulseaudio as server instance on Raspbian stretch lite and sending the named sinks to MyCroft via mycroft.conf so whatever USB stuff I connect in the future (or perhaps BT speakers) and use as default, Mycroft don’t get upset with all crappy audio issues as result.

Will ping you shortly when it s typed out.

(Have to say, haven’t tested yet playing back the news. BIG change I am mixing things up here…:smiley: )

EDIT: Just ignore me (again). Just tested it, and all working fine, so py_mplayer has nothing todo with mplayer itself. (But you already knew this :slight_smile: )
