The test in this PPA matches the latest from the code repository. The following change stopped the bug, and allowed me to earn the trophy:


if musicDir[15:20] == "$HOME":
    # generate home-based path
    music = os.path.join(homedir, musicDir[21:-2])
    # extract non-home-based path
    music = musicDir[15:-2]

# test valid path for music
if os.path.isdir(music):

#user has no music
