What applications are available for Grooveshark in Ubuntu, I'm in need of one that supports media keys.

Being generally "pretty" would be a plus too.

What I really want is a plugin for Rhythmbox but that does not seem to be available. So the next best thing would be something that works close to Rhythmbox.

Did you check out Clementine. But I am not sure about the media key support. Try it out. – devav2 Sep 13 '12 at 19:28

Try out Clementine, Amarok-inspired music player.

Clementine provides very good UI and good search features. It does provide support for multiple internet radios like Grooveshark, lastfm, Spotify etc..

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:me-davidsansome/clementine
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install clementine

This works but people will need a "Grooveshark Anywhere" (paid $9.00 US Dollars a month) account in order to enjoy such features in Clementine. – Geppettvs D'Constanzo Oct 22 '12 at 15:50
Yes. People need "Grooveshark Anywhere" account . – devav2 Oct 22 '12 at 16:31
Well I added that info as a comment as you didn't mention it. Just for reference. Thank you – Geppettvs D'Constanzo Oct 22 '12 at 18:15

It doesn't quite provide what i am looking for, and with the new webapp functionality it's not hugely useful. But it's still a valid answer. – Delusional Logic Oct 25 '12 at 22:11
