QuickRip Frequent Problems

  1. QuickRip doesn't work
  2. QuickRip complains about Sip or PyQt

1. QuickRip doesn't work

First of all, please check you have the most current version of QuickRip. Many bugs in older versions will have been fixed, so trying the latest version will be a lot easier than contacting me about it. If the latest version still doesn't work, please submit a bug report here or, if you haven't got a sourceforge account, contact me via the e-mail address listed on my web site.

2. QuickRip complains about Sip or PyQt

Whilst PyQt is a very nice GUI toolkit for programming, and Qt looks and feels nice, PyQt is prone to problems. If you run QuickRip and you get a series of error messages culminating in a message about Sip or PyQt, then the problem is with your installation of those components, not with QuickRip. The error messages might look something like this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/quickrip", line 24, in ?
import gui
File "/usr/share/quickrip/gui.py", line 14, in ?
from guimain import MainWindow
File "/usr/share/quickrip/guimain.py", line 9, in ?
from qt import *
File "/usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/qt.py", line 39, in ?
import libqtc
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.2/site-packages/libqtcmodule.so: undefined
symbol: _ZNK16QAssistantClient9classNameEv

In any event, if you get a Sip/PyQt related error message, please try reinstalling Sip/PyQt and get them to work yourself. Try installing any Sip/PyQt packages that come for your distribution first, and if that fails, try compiling Sip and PyQt from source (instructions on how to do this can be found here). You can get the latest sources (with lots of bug fixes) from:

I don't really have the time to deal with individual cases, and there is a mailing list for Sip/PyQt support if you're not getting anywhere, so please don't contact me asking for help with Sip/PyQt. If you really can't get it to work, you can just use QuickRip's command line interface, so you needn't have a working installation of PyQt :)
