Rhythmbox Google Play Music Plugin

Plugin for playing music from Google Play Music in Rhythmbox 2.x.


Ubuntu Installation via PPA

Use the PPA <>_::

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nvbn-rm/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install rhythmbox-gmusic

The Rhythmbox plugin requires the gmusicapi Python package. You can install it with::

sudo apt-get install python-pip
sudo pip install gmusicapi

For Ubuntu 14.xx or Later Users

Canonical's repos package Rhythmbox 3 beginning with Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr. If you are running Ubuntu 14 or later, you will need to add the Saucy repos to your sources, and downgrade to Rhythmbox 2.99 to use this plugin. Open ``/etc/apt/sources.list`` with elevated permissions (e.g. ``sudo emacs`` or ``gksudo gedit``) and add or uncomment these lines::

    deb saucy main restricted
    deb-src saucy main restricted

Then add the PPA as described above (if you haven't already) and run::

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get remove rhythmbox
    sudo apt-get install rhythmbox=2.99.1-0ubuntu1

Ubuntu Installation via PIP

From the shell::

    sudo apt-get install python-pip git-core
    sudo pip install git+

Fedora Installation via PIP

From the shell::

    sudo dnf install python-pip git python-cffi python-cryptography
    sudo pip install git+

Developers can clone this repository and install via ```` or add the ``-e`` to any PIP-based installation to get an editable git clone.
