Pithos is a Pandora client for the GNOME Desktop. The official Flash-based client is a CPU hog, and Pianobar is a great reverse-engineered implementation, but is command-line only. Neither integrate with the desktop very well, missing things like media key support and song notifications.

Features:

  • Play / Pause / Next Song
  • Switching stations
  • Remembering user name and password
  • Cover Art
  • Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down / Tired of this song
  • Notification popup with song info
  • Launching pandora.com song info page and station page
  • Reconnecting when pandora session times out
  • Editing QuickMix
  • Creating stations
  • Media Key support
  • Proxy support
  • Last.fm scrobbling

Install

For Ubuntu 9.04 to Ubuntu 10.10, add the PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:kevin-mehall/pithos-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pithos
