    installing Pithos (Pandora radio client) from source

    I am running ROSA Desktop Fresh R6, a Mandriva fork, on my desktop machine. I was hoping to use Pithos, a Pandora radio client, which is unfortunately not in the repositories. I attempted to install the program from source as outlined on the page Pithos page. I attempted to provide the link to those instruction but it seems that there is a rule that users cannot post URLs until they have at least 15 posts. I'm afraid I just signed up.

    I did not see any errors when compiling from source and I think that I have all the dependencies needed but when I run "pithos" to start the program, I receive the output below.

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/bin/pithos", line 9, in <module>
    load_entry_point('pithos==1.1.1', 'gui_scripts', 'pithos')()
    File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/", line 356, in load_entry_point
    return get_distribution(dist).load_entry_point(group, name)
    File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/", line 2431, in load_entry_point
    return ep.load()
    File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/", line 2147, in load
    File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/pithos-1.1.1-py3.4.egg/pithos/", line 23, in <module>
    from .pithos import NewPithosWindow
    File "/usr/lib/python3.4/site-packages/pithos-1.1.1-py3.4.egg/pithos/", line 35, in <module>
    gi.require_version('Gst', '1.0')
    File "/usr/lib64/python3.4/site-packages/gi/", line 100, in require_version
    raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace)
    ValueError: Namespace Gst not available

    Can anyone offer me advice on how to correct these errors? Thank you!

    No. But like the wizard of OZ. I have

    pithos-1.1.0-1.fc22.noarch.rpm Fedora Rawhide Download

    in case that helps instead of installing from source.

    Here is hoping this is the link you wanted to post, but could not.
