Rhythmbox Pandora Plugin

Rhythmbox Pandora is a plugin which allows you to listen to Pandora, add and remove radio stations and love, ban, tired or bookmark songs.

The Rhythmbox Pandora plugin we were telling you about a while back was officially fixed yesterday and the official package now works with Rhythmbox 0.13.2. Further more, even though the plugin still uses some Pithos code, you no longer have to install Pithos to use it.

Because I really like this plugin, I've uploaded it to the WebUpd8 PPA (for Ubuntu Maverick only - using zedtux's folderview packaging, I've only modified a few things). Add the PPA and install the Pandora plugin for Rhythmbox using the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-plugin-pandora

I've only tested the plugin using Rhythmbox 0.13.2 so if it fails to run, try installing Rhythmbox 0.13.2. The code is 100% the same as the latest GIT (as of February 4th) so if you encounter any bugs, report them on Github.
