Add a Pandora Screenlet to your Linux desktop

Filed under
Software

If you haven’t experienced Pandora radio you don’t know what you’re missing. Pandora can stream music to your web browser specifically tuned to your tastes. Imagine having that ability right on your desktop – always at your fingertips? Pretty cool eh? Well as of now there is no stand alone Pandora client for Linux nor is there a plugin for either Rhythmbox or Banshee. You can listen to Pandora through a Songbird plugin. But with the issues surrounding Songbird and Gstream conflicts, installing Songbird can be a nightmare. So…what about that ever-elusive stand-alone application? Is it possible with Pandora? Why yes it is…thanks to Screenlets.

So in this article I am going to show you how to install the Pandora Screenlet so you can stream pandora radio to your Linux desktop.
