[GUIDE] Pandora on Dockstar
August 18, 2011 09:12PM
I have been using mpd to listen to my music on the Dockstar, but I was looking for a way to use Pandora for some new tunes. After searching I found the perfect solution---pianobar--a console-based pandora client.

Here are the steps I used to get it running.

  1. Get the latest version of pianobar from here
  2. Install dependencies
    1. liba0 can be downloaded from here
    2. For the other dependencies I used
        sudo apt-get install libfaad-dev libmad0-dev  
  3. Compile and Install
    1. make
    2. make install
  4. Simply use the command 'pianobar' and your good to go.

Note: I had to edit the /etc/asound.conf file as I was getting some really bad popping noises.

This seemed to stop it but I'm open to other solutions.

//insert this and remove everything else from the file
pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm hw
