As Pandora's biggest fan, I'm glad to see people developing apps for it.

Right now, I'm testing Pithos and the Pandora One app running on Adobe Air in Wine.
After I get a handle on which I like better, I'll compare the winner with yours.

I'll have to look into this when I get home. Did you try clicking into the text boxes?

Ah, I had to find the pesky text entry widget. :rolleyes: Those buggers are so tiny and camouflaged... All good here, so never mind. :P Wish the text entry widget was a tad more defined by default, like with a shadow or something.

Anyway, the upgrade and work was noticeable! Looks neater and quite stylish in comparison to the first go-around. Great work; thank you! :)

Try changing Elm themes - the text boxes are much easier to see in some of the non-default ones. The default Elm theme needs work and the E team knows this.

In its future development, can the ability to view two, three songs ahead be on the to-do list, like pithos implements?

I did that at one point, but it isn't the intended use for the API and is really an abuse IMO. You should not be encouraged to skip songs to get to one that is coming up. That is not the point of Pandora.

I have used Pithos since its first release & I love it! I personally have NEVER had a problem with it. I did try eAndora, but I too was not able to get logged in until I uninstalled then reinstalled it. Once I did get it runngin, it was ok. I think I still prefer pithos.

Yep - same reason so many people still cling to Gnome 2 and Windows XP even though they have long been surpassed by better things - they simply like what they are used to using.

I actually prefer eAndora. & I consider myself conservative. ;)

@Jeff
On occasion, switching stations causes some notable bugs. Sometimes the song will not display; sometimes the song list isn't refreshed; sometimes it plays without loading some song info. Just a heads up. Can't really screenshot it. Maybe later, I'll try to capture it in video. Tired. School, work. Been a longg day. Siesta time.

I spent a solid 3 minutes simply switching back and forth between stations on eAndora and it always switched with GUI without issues for me. It could very well be related to a bandwidth issue and it not getting the information from Pandora fast enough - I'll have to add some checks to the GUI switches on station change.

Ah, I actually never considered that. My home router is a tad old and bottlenecks my bandwidth at times. Maybe some checks with time delays or timeouts for low bandwidth? Or do you mean specifying bandwidth speed via elementary.check widgets?

Songs don't play for me. I get the terminal error "emotion-gstreamer emotion_gstreamer.c:1888 _emotion_gstreamer_video_pipeline_parse() Unable to get GST_CLOCK_TIME_NONE."

Any thoughts?

What OS/arch are you using eAndora on?

I am using Bodhi 2.3. I did make sure gstreamer and the plugins associated with it were installed. Thanks for getting back to me. Aside from this hiccup I do like the interface you made. Good work!

Please ensure all your system updates are run. Is this a 32 or 64bit system?

I'll have to load up eAndora when I get home to ensure Pandora hasn't changed anything that causes this issue. Been a few days since I used the client - but when I tried it last it worked fine.

Its a 32bit non-pae. Do you happen to know what that error means? Its greek to me. Also I have tried it on different networks so thats not an issue. Plus it was a fresh install with full updates. In case it helps its a Compaq Evo n610c machine.

Do other audio devices work on your system (namely gstreamer based audio applications - try deadbeef (bodhi-deadbeef) music player for example).

I can replicate your issue on a 32bit virtual machine - but it works fine on my 32bit netbook. I think you might simply be missing a package - but I don't have time to debug this evening.

Regards,
~Jeff
