I was bit by this as well.  In my case I get the AttributeError error if
config.conf is missing or has a typo ("type=nogl").  A present and correct
config.conf works fine.

You can lower the frame rate from the default of 30 by adding the
following line(s) to your config.conf:

fft_rate=15 (...or whatever frame rate you want)

This will work with either the old or the new sinks.

Please see if you can duplicate this problem.  What directory were you
running 'usrp_fft.py' from?

Actually, if the config.conf is missing, the software just defaults to
the non-gl implementation, so this shouldn't have made a difference.

Since this is still experimental code in the trunk, we default to not
using it until someone explicitly enables it.  In release 3.2, it will
become the default unless GL support is missing, then will fall back
to using the non-GL version.
