AttributeError: 'QComboBox' object has no attribute 'setPlaceholderText'

  • I am not the developer! I am just a user trying to run a rcon tool for a game on Ubuntu 20.04. I had to install idle to set the files to use python.
    When I try to run this program ISRT_v0.8.1_Linux-Mac, python isrt.py, generates this error.

    cougarxr7@GoneSpy:~/Programs/isrt/ISRT_v0.8.1_Linux-Mac$ python3 isrt.py
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "isrt.py", line 3392, in <module>
        mgui = maingui()
      File "isrt.py", line 252, in __init__
      File "/home/cougarxr7/Programs/isrt/ISRT_v0.8.1_Linux-Mac/bin/isrt_gui.py", line 1857, in setupUi
      File "/home/cougarxr7/Programs/isrt/ISRT_v0.8.1_Linux-Mac/bin/isrt_gui.py", line 1866, in retranslateUi
        self.dropdown_select_server.setPlaceholderText(_translate("ISRT_Main_Window", "Select Server"))
    AttributeError: 'QComboBox' object has no attribute 'setPlaceholderText'

    But when I run, isrt_monitor.py, it works! !isrt_monitor.py working.png
    DBL Click opens py files.png
    python isrt.py error.png
    How can this be fixed?

  • @Cougar-0 what is the output of python3 --version?

    try execute:

    sudo python3 -m pip install pyqt5==5.15.4

  • @Cougar-0 Are you using pyqt5 or pyside2? What version of pyqt5 or pyside2 do you use? The placeholderText property was introduced in Qt 5.15 so you must use the most recent versions of those libraries

  • @eyllanesc said in AttributeError: 'QComboBox' object has no attribute 'setPlaceholderText':

    using pyqt5 or pyside2?

    QMake version 3.1
    Using Qt version 5.12.8
    Looks like I need to update my Qt version.
    Did a search online and did not find a Qt5 update for Ubuntu 20.04??
    pyside2 is not installed on this drive, I just recently reformatted & reinstall the os.
    How can I update Qt5 to 5.15?

  • @Cougar-0 Uninstall pyqt5 (as it may conflict) and use pip to install pyqt5:

    sudo apt-get install python3-pip
    sudo python3 -m pip install pyqt5
