Pithos Pandora Client in Fedora 19 / 20

I had a dickens of a time trying to find Pithos packages for Fedora 19. At a loss for answers I figured I'd build it myself. After searching Google for a bit I came up with

http://blog.seventhmoon.info/blog/2012/07/31/getting-pithos-to-work-in-fedora-16-17/12/07/31/getting-pithos-to-work-in-fedora-16-17/

It's for Fedora 16 and 17 but it worked for Fedora 19 just fine. Below is a rehash of the steps needed to download and compile Pithos.

Step 1 - Input this command to add the rpmfusion repositories. One long command.

yum localinstall --nogpgcheck http://download1.rpmfusion.org/free/fedora/rpmfusion-free-release-stable.noarch.rpm http://download1.rpmfusion.org/nonfree/fedora/rpmfusion-nonfree-release-stable.noarch.rpm

Step 2 - Input this yum command to install dependencies for Pithos. One long command.

yum install python pyxdg pygobject2 pylast gstreamer-python notify-python gtk2-python dbus-python gstreamer-plugins-good gstreamer-plugins-bad gstreamer-plugins-ugly python-distutils-extra git python-setuptools

Step 3 - Where the magic happens. We download the source, compile and install. Three seperate commands, one on each line.

git clone https://github.com/kevinmehall/pithos.git
cd pithos
sudo python setup.py install --prefix=/usr

Also, I think the original author sums it up best with...

Due to the nature of this software, one might suggest getting the paid version of Pandora (the plan sans ads) to make yourself feel better when using this.  (Pithos has infinite skips and no ads…)
