@camb, Works here w/ free account.

Aha, figured it out. /etc/pulse/ had "load-module module-role-cork" which mutes non-voice playback streams when a voice application is open. Pulseaudio saw TeamSpeak 3 was open and muted Pithos by default. Commenting that out in fixed the issue.

Stebalien commented on 2016-11-27 16:09

@andrewd18, sorry, that sounds like a bug in pulseaudio (or some KDE component managing pulseaudio). You should probably ask on the forums to narrow down your problem.

andrewd18 commented on 2016-11-27 06:20

Every time the song changes, the playback stream is muted in pulseaudio. Everything else works fine... I just have to unmute it every song. Thoughts? Pithos 1.2.1, KDE 5.8.

TingPing commented on 2016-08-02 03:55

The Pandora api references three quality levels but actually only give you two. As of 1.2.0 Pithos requests an extra quality level and remaps high/low to it.

camb commented on 2016-08-02 03:54

Strange, I've been on High for quite some time without hitting this issue... or was I *actually* on High?

TingPing commented on 2016-08-02 01:44

It is as optional as it was, it is just now free users can choose High for mp3 now.

camb commented on 2016-08-02 01:43

Looks like gst-plugins-ugly is no longer optional.

I was getting an error about GStreamer plugins after update which went away after install of gst-plugins-ugly.

After installing gnome-keyring, everything works fine.

Stebalien commented on 2016-07-28 20:24

@eduhat unfortunately, there's currently no good way to express this dependency (bug report:

TingPing commented on 2016-07-28 20:11

Yes you need some service that implements it; An example would be `gnome-keyring`.

eduhat commented on 2016-07-28 20:08

I am getting the following after the latest update:

> Technically, MPRIS depends on libdbus

This is false, Gio provides a complete implementation of DBus and does not use libdbus.

What your system uses for DBus shouldn't really apply to this package right?

EDIT: Also dbus is a part of core. So per convention it is implied to be installed.

Current Workaround:
sudo wget -P /etc/ca-certificates/trust-source/anchors/ && sudo trust extract-compat

TheChickenMan commented on 2015-11-17 07:01

The program does not start correctly for me now.

@troyengel, Thanks. Sorry for the extreme delay, I never noticed your comment.

troyengel commented on 2014-12-02 18:24

Small fix to the PKGBUILD - the optional deps lists 'python-pacparser', I think the dep should be changed to just 'pacparser' (there's a 'python2-pacparser' as well, so maybe the package name changed?)

It also lists 'libappindicator3' which I think is supposed to be 'libappindicator-gtk3' based on a search just now.

Stebalien commented on 2014-11-28 20:46

@ework, Good point. Updated.

ework commented on 2014-11-25 10:21

You need to install the package "python-cairo" in order to display cover art in the playlist window. It's not required to play music, but it seems like basic functionality that is otherwise missing.

Stebalien commented on 2014-09-27 20:47

@D101101, I'm going to leave them in the optional dependencies just in case someone wants to upload them. However, I don't use these features so I'd rather not maintain those packages (I can't test them).

D101101 commented on 2014-09-27 20:39

libappindicator3 and python-pacparser are not available now

Stebalien commented on 2014-09-18 06:06

@flutyoshi: no. Pithos depends on gtk3 which optionally depends on gnome-icon-theme which depends on gnome-icon-theme-symbolic. However, you can install another icon theme that provides the symbolic icons (e.g. Faenza) and don't really need the gnome one.

fluteyoshi commented on 2014-09-18 05:44

Should gnome-icon-theme-symbolic be added as a dependency? The icons in Pithos will just show up with error symbols without this package installed.

Stebalien commented on 2014-05-04 03:34

@Allan, done, thanks.

Allan commented on 2014-05-04 03:30

pithos does not run without python-setuptools installed, so that needs moved to depends.

Stebalien commented on 2014-04-26 22:03

@marekpetrik. It's listed in the optdepends.

marekpetrik commented on 2014-04-26 22:01

Requires gstreamer0.10-ugly-plugins to play the High quality stream.

rectec commented on 2013-12-06 01:33

Damn, you beat me to the punch, Stebalien! Thanks for updating this :)

TingPing commented on 2013-12-05 18:48

I don't use Arch any longer so I am dropping this, needs to be updated for 0.3.18 that just released.

kreed commented on 2012-06-06 18:10

Fixed, thanks

Stebalien commented on 2012-06-02 15:42

As snowball pointed out on pithos-git, python-distutils-extra has been replaced with python2-distutils-extra (and needs to be changed in the makedepends).
