[Solved] Lollypop music app does not launch

I am trying to install the music player called Lollypop on my machine. I can install it without any issues, but it will not launch. I am new to Arch, and pretty new to Linux in general. Here is the output of trying to launch it from terminal

$ lollypop

Trace/breakpoint trap (core dumped)

Running it with sudo, I get

sudo lollypop
[INFO] 2019-10-13 02:02:37 You need to add a music uri to org.gnome.Lollypop in dconf

It appears the issue has to do with there being no music uri in org.gnome.lollypop. How would I fix this? The application launched earlier, but after uninstalling it and installing it again, this started happening. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: [Solved] Lollypop music app does not launch

I was able to get it to work. Lollypop seemed to be leaving some files in ./local/share (at least that's where I think the files were). I deleted those and it started working again after a fresh install. Don't know exactly why this all happened, but the problem is solved.
