Install from sources


As the wheel for music-player-core is not yet provided you have to build it yourself from sources, this is why you need these requirements:

  • boost >=1.55.0
  • ffmpeg >= 2.0 (including libswresample)
  • portaudio >=v19
  • chromaprint

Debian and derivatives

apt-get install python-dev libsnappy-dev libtool yasm libchromaprint-dev portaudio19-dev libboost-dev

# FFmpeg
apt-get install libavformat-dev libavresample-dev

Install and build

git clone
pip install --user pipenv
pipenv install

Note: if you want to use your system theme you will have to symlink your virtualenv's PySide2 folder to your system one. It is probably located around /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages/PySide2.


pipenv run ./
