    Last.fm not working in rhythmbox

    I have my account from last.fm to rhythm box and it shows me all the artists i like and who i've listened to, but anytime I try to listen to last.fm radio through rhythm it does nothing. No radio in the app itself or in a web browser window. How do I fix this?

    Ditto here. It stopped working with Quantal. There were some changes that last.fm announced. But I can't get RB to work with it.

    I used to use Vagalume client for last.fm but that got shut down also.

    Last.fm made some changes and now it seems you have to go directly to their site to get it to work.

    They changed the stream protocol in December. I received updates and it continued to work in Rhythmbox for a while. Though I can login and allow Rhythmbox it no longer finds the stream. For the moment I am using the Last.fm client in the software center until I find out if there is another media player I can use. http://www.last.fm/announcements/radio2013

    Frogs Hair, thanks.

    Just installed that Last.fm client in the software center you mentioned and am listening to and testing it out now. It seems nice. Hope it lasts.

    Got a message from that Last.fm client in the software center that the 'free trail' has expired and saying that if you want to continue listening to Last.fm, you have to now become a paid subscriber!

    Oh well that didn't last long.

    Any other good free steaming radio sites out there?

    I suspect the same will happen to me being in the U.S.. It looks like the browser will be the only way to access Last.fm for free. I haven't found other services like the old Last.fm that offer mainstream music.Libre fm is an independent label site geared towards getting exposure lesser known artists. Without knowing the artists its hard to find anything familiar.
