Stuck on an issue?

Lightrun Answers was designed to reduce the constant googling that comes with debugging 3rd party libraries. It collects links to all the places you might be looking at while hunting down a tough bug.

And, if you’re still stuck at the end, we’re happy to hop on a call to see how we can help out.

I tried editing mimicking PyQt5 , copy-pasting and changing to PyQt6 where relevant, but running the aiohttp example using PyQt6.QtWidgets ends up with this:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/home/willyjl/.pyenv/versions/3.9.6/lib/python3.9/asyncio/", line 261, in _add_reader
    key = self._selector.get_key(fd)
  File "/home/willyjl/.pyenv/versions/3.9.6/lib/python3.9/", line 193, in get_key
    raise KeyError("{!r} is not registered".format(fileobj)) from None
KeyError: '6 is not registered'

During handling of the above exception, another exception occurred:

AttributeError: type object 'QSocketNotifier' has no attribute 'Read'

Is PyQt6 support planned? Am I missing something?

@Willy-JL I have created a PR #53 that supports PyQt6, hopefully it will be accepted soon.

Until my PR is accepted you could install my version through the command:

pip install git+

PyQt6 isn’t fully supported yet, sorry. Some changes were made for PyQt6 but it’s incomplete. I can’t really say when/if I’ll have time to finish it.
