To install Pianobar, emerge it:

root # emerge pianobar

Pianobar configuration

Easy login

After you have emerged Pianobar, you can run it with pianobar. If you dislike typing your username and password every time that you run pianobar, create the file ~/.config/pianobar/config and add the following lines to it:

user = user@email.com

Easy login (with encryption)

If leaving a plaintext password for your Pandora account somewhere on your filesystem makes you nervous, you can use gpg to decrypt a file that contains your password. Change your configuration to reflect the one below if you would like to encrypt your password:

password_command = gpg --decrypt ~/.passwords/pianobar
user = user@email.com


To configure keybindings, check out man pianobar. All keybindings can be added to ~/.config/pianobar/config. All the keybindings in the man page will begin with the line act_.

Other configuration options

Option Description
audio_quality The quality of the audio. Can be set to: high, medium, or low.
autostart_station Select a station ID that you would like to play when Pianobar starts.
proxy Use a http proxy.


Not compiled with threads support

If you recieve the following warning message ([aac @ 0x7faccc003cd0] Warning: not compiled with thread support, using thread emulation) while running Pianobar, add threads support to ffmpeg, then rebuild it:

root # echo "media-video/ffmpeg threads" > /etc/portage/package.use/ffmpeg
root # emerge ffmpeg
As of FL-1437, threads support should be enabled on ffmpeg by default.
