I’ve installed git, ruby and sinatra on my raspberry pi , created the config.yml file and I was good to go!
(shell-fm was already installed on my r-pi following my precedent blog post)
Look here! Isn’t it nice? There’s also Album cover!!!
I had a mini heart attack when I found that after the last update/upgrade of debian ‘Raspbian’ distro, audio was absent!!!
“here we go!” – I’ve said to myself – “Finally I’ve managed to broken this little pi..” . No audio, only music with HUGE noise! signal was so low!
But after a few minute I typed into a ssh session to the pi, the command “alsamixer” and found that audio was MUTED! Y U NO STAY UNMUTED AFTER UPDATE? everything is fine now.
Never get mini heart attacks for these things!
If you own a Raspberry Pi and also a last.fm account, you should then totally try this out!
Since the Rasp-Pi is a linux box, and since they’ve released the freshly new Raspbian distribution, Shell-fm works here too!
Go to http://nex.scrapping.cc/shell-fm/ and download&compile everything you need (I’ve installed&used synaptic to fetch some libraries), then launch shell-fm !
Works great and it’s command line interface is straightforward!
Here’s a screenshot during a session of ssh from my mac to my rasp-pi box sitting near my router(in a galaxy far far away). (Audio isn’t that bad, after all.)
Shortcuts for command line interface (commands for network interface via sockets differ)
