Pithos is a Pandora radio app

An all-singing, all-dancing new release of open-source Pandora client Pithos is now available for download.

Music streaming service Pandora is only available in the United States of America, New Zealand and Australia. As a Brit, I am not familiar with it, and I can’t test how well this app works.

But what I can do is re-parrot and repackage the changes listed in the release notes on the project’s GitHub page.

Pithos 1.2

The popular Pandora radio app adds an ‘extensive’ set of keyboard shortcuts, fixes a bunch of bugs, and ships with improved MPRIS support, and more.

Last.FM users will be happy to learn that tracks once again show up as “Now Playing” on the music logging service’s website, and that album art issues have been sorted.

Other changes in Pithos 1.2:

  • App now uses GSettings
  • Passwords store with SecretService (lib secret)
  • Dbus-python dependencies removes
  • Extensive keyboard shortcuts
  • Content filter option
  • All dialogs now use GNOME Headerbars
  • Redesigned stations dropdown
  • Improve integration with Flatpack
  • Last.FM integration improved

Download Pithos for Ubuntu 16.04

You can download Pithos 1.2 from the GitHub project site, but bear in mind it ships as source code and will need compiling.

Not into the heavy lifting? The official Pithos PPA provides the latest release for Ubuntu 16.04 users. If you don’t fancy adding the PPA you can download the .deb installer directly:
