Google TTS doesn't work after update to 2.5

After the update to 2.5 I get an error when storing the google credentials (the json file).
Any ideas please?

First thing that comes to mind: did you clear the cache and tmp folder?
Sometimes you need to do that again, even when the upgrade script does it as well. And make sure to let OH run for a while and restart again (without clearing cache or tmp).

And welcome to the forum! :smiley:

Thank you Ron for the reply and for the welcome message! And thank you all for building such a great tool!
Regarding my issue: I’ve just stopped OH, run openhab-cli clean-cache and start again. The problem still exists.
In the community I found a similar problem here:


but I don’t know how to use/adapt the solution to my problem… :frowning:

That post is about missing dependencies, which may not be applicable to your issue. To check that, did you try bundle:diag? Any errors when you restart the binding bundle:restart?

Bundle:restart doesn’t show anything in the console, but I get the same exception in the logs.

Can it be that I have a wrong version for some dependency?

Sorry, can’t help you any further as I’m not using Google TTS…

Sorry I cant be much of a help here. But I´m using Oh 2.5.0 on my Rpi 3B+ system and Google TTS without any issues.
I wonder if this could be a bug in the newer release, which I assume you´ve got?

Thank you for your support.
I rolled back to 2.4 since anyway I noticed other issues also that came with 2.5 and I can tell you that with 2.4 it works again.
So the problem must come from the upgrade to 2.5, either due to the way I upgraded, or due to a bug or an error in the release itself…

And btw. the error doesn’t come from the Google TTS service, but from the library used to authenticate to Google services in general. I use also the Google Calendar add-on and this service also didn’t work with 2.5.

Now you mention it… I think I recall there has been some changes to this… I´m not sure which thread though :frowning:
