mp3 tagging, and puddletag

My preferred mp3 tag editor is Puddletag. Puddletag depends on pyqt4 which was recently removed in Debian. So...
I can run the pyqt5 port available from a source tree branch named pyqt5. However, it has some interesting limitations that I can't tell if are caused because of unported functionality or disabled because I didn't actually bundle it into a package.
Issues include:

  • Unable to save changes to mp3 files on the tag editor tool window (normally docked on the left). Changing the spreadsheet area contents does work.

  • Therefore, I unable to save album art

I am looking for recommendations for another mp3 tag editor, or an alternative way to run puddletag with some of this basic functionality enabled. If anyone knows of another spreadsheet-style mp3 tag editor, I would love to hear about it! Otherwise, I guess I'll learn to edit mp3 metadata one file at a time.

Re: mp3 tagging, and puddletag

I have been using gtkpod.. But this may be bloated for your needs.
It can edit the Mp3 files though. it's more for loading them into apple's ridiculous file system.. But haven't completely broken my Ipod yet so might as well use it.
