Pianobar in Vector Linux STD Gold 7
« on: September 09, 2012, 05:58:55 am »

Pianobar is a cli terminal only radio streaming music player that plays your Pandora radio Stations
through the terminal instead of through your browsser. It is very light on resources and is
a very small package to install. You will need a pandora radio account or lastfm account to use pianobar.

If you live overseas because pandora radio is only a USA radio only station. You can use pianobar
to access LastFM instead.

Just download the painobar package from this thread that hata_ph provided for me to /home

right click on downloaded .txz and pick install package and let it do it's thing.

PS: You need to install json-c-0.9 as a dependency for can install it via gslapt..

After install. Just type in terminal as user (no need to be root)

Code: [Select]

Code: [Select]
