Update : New error. Check below.

I followed the default installation steps as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnumdk/lollypop
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lollypop

But then got the error:

E: Unable to locate package lollypop

I followed the steps by @mike-wild which were :

$ git clone https://github.com/gnumdk/lollypop.git
$ cd lollypop
$ sudo apt install autoconf libglib2.0-dev intltool yelp-tools libgirepository1.0-dev libgtk-3-dev python3 python-cairo python-dbus python-gobject python-sqlite
$ ./autogen.sh
$ make
# sudo make install

This successfully installed(without any errors). But when I try to open it using the command "lollypop" in terminal. I encountered this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/bin/lollypop", line 22, in <module>
    from lollypop.application import Application
  File "/usr/local/lib/python3.4/site-packages/lollypop/application.py", line 16, in <module>
    gi.require_version('GstAudio', '1.0')
  File "/usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/gi/__init__.py", line 79, in require_version
    raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace)
ValueError: Namespace GstAudio not available

EDIT 2 :

Running these:

sudo apt-get install gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-1.0 gir1.2-totem-plparser-1.0

After this lollypop opens up at least. But the gui crashes often. It is very unstable. This is the terminal output.

Reading the above output, I went ahead and installed lollypop-portal: https://github.com/gnumdk/lollypop-portal through the steps:

git clone https://github.com/gnumdk/lollypop-portal.git
./autogen.sh
make
sudo make install

And then ran lollypop:

    h = grid.child_get_property(switch_artwork_tags, 'height')

So, should I install lollypop-portal before lollypop?

Unfortunately the author of the PPA you are using hasn't built Lollypop for Ubuntu 14.04 (which is what Freya is based on), which is why you are getting an error saying the package could not be located.

You can build it yourself using the instructions: https://github.com/gnumdk/lollypop, however I'm not sure if you'll be able to install the required dependencies in Freya.

$ git clone https://github.com/gnumdk/lollypop.git
$ cd lollypop
$ sudo apt install autoconf libglib2.0-dev intltool yelp-tools libgirepository1.0-dev libgtk-3-dev python3 python-cairo python-dbus python-gobject python-sqlite gir1.2-gst-plugins-base-1.0 gir1.2-totem-plparser-1.0

$ ./autogen.sh
$ make
$ sudo make install

  • It installed with only a minor change (sudo before make install). But isn't opening. When I enter "lollypop" comman in the terminal, this error is given: "ValueError: Namespace GstAudio not available" Jan 26 '17 at 10:25
  • That's something related to Gstreamer I think - I'll look into it.

  • @GauravKumar Can you run sudo apt install gobject-introspection and try again?

  • gobject-introspection is already the newest version. Same error is popping up. Jan 27 '17 at 4:12
  • @GauravKumar Hmm, basically you are looking for a package which provides GstAudio-x.x.x.typelib, but I'm having problems figuring out which it is. Can you run ls /usr/lib/girepository-1.0 and post the output?
