Hi ten-10,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum!

It would help to know more about your system setup. If you run "inxi -Fxzd" from the console terminal prompt, highlight the results, copy and paste them back here, that should provide enough information.

Hi ten-10,

You are welcome...

Why not try one of the other radio tray options, like "radiotray-lite" or "radiotray-ng"? Since you are using Linux Mint 17.x, I do not know if you can install "gradio".

:x I really don't know what's wrong. I can download all the suggestions but they won't run. They go on easy and I can take them off easy, just can't get them to execute.

Hi ten-10,

Can you please be more explicit? For example, I try to run radio tray lite and I do not see the tray icon or I try to run it and it does not play, etc...? Screenshots might help as well.

You can always start a program (application) from the console terminal and see what messages appear, and copy and paste the results back here.
The command below runs radio tray lite from a console terminal prompt.

Code: Select all

radiotray-lite

Hope this helps ...

They just don't show up anywhere. I don't get any icons. The Radio Tray icon in my menu won't start when I click on it. I'll try.

Hi ten-10,

"Command not found" means the application is not installed properly.

To install Radio Tray Lite using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one: Click "Select All" above command, right-click the highlighted command, select Copy (or Ctrl+Insert), click in the console terminal window, and right click paste (or Shift+Insert), repeat for each command.

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8

Code: Select all

sudo apt update

Code: Select all

sudo apt install radiotray-lite
thekvs/radiotray-lite: Online radio streaming player with minimum interface that runs on a Linux system tray
https://github.com/thekvs/radiotray-lite


As for the standard radiotray application from the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM), did you also install "python-xdg"? I think "radio tray lite" or "radiotray-ng" is better than the regular standard radiotray app.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install python-xdg
I will boot into my Linux Mint 17.3 KDE system and run the commands there as well and I'll let you know.

FYI: There are numerous excellent applications for streaming radio like the wonderful "StreamTuner2", and most music applications can play streaming radio as well like Amarok, Audacious, Clementine, Tomahawk, Yarock, Sayonara, guayadeque, Musique, Kaku, Lollypop, etc... There are also Spotify, Pandora, SoundCloud, Harmony, etc... applications as well.


Hope this helps ...

Hi ten-10,

Those are normal results for installing an application from the console terminal. Sometimes it is also good to run the command below to make sure that the application's installation finished and to install any missing dependencies. I usually run this command after installing anything.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install -f

Hi ten-10,

First, did Radio Tray Lite install and work for you now?

Second, where did this request come from, "What is a text/html decoder? Where can I get one?"? What do you want this for?

Third, of all the streaming radio options, "StreamTuner2" has by far the most stations of all types (genres: music, news, talk, etc...) from all over the world and can play them through almost any installed music application.

StreamTuner2 download link, just save the "deb" file, and double-click it to install it.

I don't know if this helps but I can stream directly from the web site itself but when I try to radio stream it won't work.
Radio Tray Lite won't work as well. That message came from Amarok when I attempted that route. I'll try StreamTuner2.

Just tried Stream Tuner 2.
Could not open the file /home/trenten/Downloads/streamtuner2-2.2.0.pyz.
gedit has not been able to detect the character encoding.
Please check that you are not trying to open a binary file.
Select a character encoding from the menu and try again.

Hi ten-10,

Your last comment sounds like you have a particular radio streaming station that you want to listen too, if so, please provide a link(s) to that? Not all online streaming radio stations can be added to 3rd party applications.

StreamTuner2 has many options and can be a little confusing to add them, but once you have it setup, it is awesome! I usually have StreamTuner2 use Audacious because it is light on system resources; this is automatically done if Audacious is installed when you install StreamTuner2. Although I love Amarok my favorite complete music application, it does use more system resources.

I updated my last reply to include a link to download and install StreamTuner2 using their Linux deb file, use that.
