Radio Tray Is Not Working in Elementary Freya

Radio Tray is an online radio streaming player with a minimal interface that allows you to listen to online radio stations. This is not a replacement for your media player, it’s an applet that sits on the top panel and allows you to quickly switch between your favorite stations – read more about it on the Radio Tray project page. However, Radio Tray is not working in Elementary Freya after final release.

To install it open a Terminal and paste the following command:
