I get this when trying to run shell-fm...

Press ? for help.
Invalid HTTP: HTTP/1.0 403 Forbidden
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch shell-fm
2. shell-fm tries to connect as usual
3. returns 403 error code
i expect it to work as usual
I believe there has been an API change to shell-fm, and there is a fix for this bug in the upstream git version. Perhaps we can enable the git version as an ebuild?
The website is returning 403 Forbidden errors for regular browsers too. That's not from an API change, that's a problem with the website itself. You need to file this with the upstream maintainers, I doubt we can do anything here.
I meant that its an API change with last-fm, not shell-fm.
So yeah, any applications which are written to use the old API will fail.
The latest version in git solves this. I'm wondering if we could make an ebuild which tracks the latest git version.

also, if you're trying to use the url I provided in my report (ie. http://ws.audioscrobbler.com/radio) that most certainly will fail, since I shortened it to protect personal information from being sent over this list. Anyway, for a discussion of this problem see this link
