Raspberry Pi 5 - Anki on Arm issues


Currently trying to set up Anki on Raspberry Pi on my device. Have set up via PyWheels as my coding experience is limited.

Currently running into errors. I am able to launch it with a window open, however no decks or anything shows, barring the top menu bar.

I also recieved this error on last launch:

Anki 23.12 (97f43fbd) (src)
Python 3.11.2 Qt 5.15.8 PyQt 5.15.9
Platform: Linux-6.1.0-rpi7-rpi-2712-aarch64-with-glibc2.36

/home/user/pyenv/lib/python3.11/site-packages/aqt/init.py:717: Warning: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed

These are the current errors I’m getting whilst running Anki

Anki is built with the Qt toolkit. The Qt website has a page on developing Qt applications with Raspberry Pi as target hardware, and it seems like some extra steps are involved. In that case, the existing Linux executable might not work.

The “Qt warning” error message in your screenshot certainly suggests a problem.

Maybe the Reddit subreddits on Qt or Raspberry Pi might be helpful.

PyQt-WebEngine appears to be broken on your distro. I suggest you reproduce the issue outside of Anki, and then report the problem to the maintainer of the PyQt package.
