Pithos, a Linux app the streams Pandora Radio natively without the clunky flash webapp or any sort of browser being open, would consistantly crash after a few songs and would have to be restarted to continue playing. I found a fix on this website: Pithos Launchpad. The fix requires creating a file with the name pithos.patch and then putting this text inside (Updated with a link to the file. Wordpress wouldn’t display the code right. You can retrieve it using wget https://launchpadlibrarian.net/70116767/pithos.patch):
Here is also a Google Docs link just incase the launchpad every goes down:
Then your run these commands:
$ which pithos > /usr/bin/pithos $ cd /usr/bin/ $ patch pithos < /path/to/pithos.patch
That succesfully fixed my Pithos installation to continuesly play the music without stopping. Pithos rocks now!
