Radio Tray is one of the most popular Linux users to listen to web radio directly from your Linux distribution. Special features of Radio Tray is to be easy to use and non-invasive because once you start going to add an applet in our panel and from there we will be able to add and manage categories for our favorite web radio.
It supports most popular formats such as m3u. pls ess being written in python we can install any Linux desktop environment such as Gnome Shell, KDE, Xfce, LXDE Cinnamon, etc. Mate DE. In recent years lffl has provided a PPA which allowed to install Radio Tray with already a collection of the major Italian radio such as Radio Rai, Radio Deejay, Radio 105, etc..
Given the many demands of the deb packages we decided to make an exception to the rule that does not give the packages but the list with the web radio constantly updated so that it can be installed in any Linux distribution.
I also remember that you can create a list with your favorite web radio by placing links that can be found for example from this portal.
To install the Italian Radio on Radio Tray in Ubuntu, Debian, Arch Linux, Fedora, etc. the first thing to do is to install Radio Tray application usually found in the repositories of major Linux distributions.
For Ubuntu, for example, just start Ubuntu or Ubuntu Software Center Apps Directory once installed the Radio Tray are moving and we will find the list of various foreign web radio.
What we need to do is to close Radio Tray and start the terminal and type:
  • wget
  • mv bookmarks.xml ~/.local/share/radiotray
Once this is done reboot Radio Tray Italian Radio and here are collected in categories.
If you have any web radio that does not work you can report it, correct it promptly list it so that it remains up to date and running. To update the list, just repeat the above procedure.
