Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.


Back in Februrary we were telling you about Pithos, a pandora.com Linux client which supports switching between stations, cover art, proxy and more. Pithos wasn't updated in a while but today a new Pithos (0.2.0) version has been uploaded to the Pithos PPA. Pithos 0.2.0 doesn't come with huge changes, just a lot of bug fixes (such as fixing fetching the cover art when behind a proxy), some tweaks to the user interface, bigger cover art and more.

The new Pithos 0.2.0 also comes with indicator applet support and a monochrome icon by default which you can use to love/ban/tired the current song as well as pause / skip:

Install Pithos 0.2.0 in Ubuntu

To install Pithos in Ubuntu, simply paste the following commands in a terminal:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pithos/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pithos

In case you're not living in the US and want to listen to Pandora using Pithos anyway, see: Listen to Pandora And Spotify Outside US / UK In Linux, Using TOR (With Country Specific Exit Nodes)
