Installing Radioplayer

The Radioplayer front end software has been written in Python using Pygame and is specific for the TFT 320x240 2.8" screen.  However, it is relatively simple to adapt the code to work in a window.

Download the Python code and icons from the link above.  Extract the files onto a memory stick and copy into a folder onto the Raspberry Pi.  (Or you can place it in the SD card directory on your home computer, the files will be in /boot when the SD card is booted on the Pi)

I save mine into a folder called pi-radio

Ensure that all the icons and python code is saved into the folder /home/pi/pi-radio

At this stage everything should be ready to go!

Test it out by running:

cd /home/pi/pi-radio
sudo python radioplayer.py
