There is no option for: PCmanFM-qt -> Edit -> Preferences -> Launch executable files without prompt
Of course there is such option. I know because I checked. I installed sparky potolo with lxqt inside virtual machine. This option exists and works ( partially ). Enabling it stops annoying question but does not hide red exclamation mark.

Post your radio station links and names so will add them to the next release.

Thanks pavroo. I personalized good enough the bookmarks file. It  i very simple.
The only link that I did not arrived to play in ubuntu distros is : http://lin1.san.fast-serv.com:9844/; (i do not why).Maybe,I should dig a little deeper in your Radiostation code to understand why the above link played correctly in Firefox and not in Opera.

Re-debianized the dropbox package so it can be installed back on testing, so refresh package list and install it.

It sounds a reasonable solution, but editing the deb file is new to me and I have to learn it first.

There is no option for: PCmanFM-qt -> Edit -> Preferences -> Launch executable files without prompt

The only option is: "don't ask questions on launch" which I already set.

Made no difference, I still get the red '!' in the middle of the icon.

Great pavroo. Tried and works good.Some small glitches (very rare) with memory. I personalized list, editing /~/.config/radiostation/bookmarks.xml.
The only link that Radiostation is not able to play was http://lin1.san.fast-serv.com:9844/; (Andy 80' Rare) .The link can be played by Firefox but not by Opera(the same engine as Chrome). Alternatively I tried to run https://radiovolna.net/en/6228-andys-80s.html in Radiostation, but gives the follow error Your GStreamer installation is missing a plug-in. Which pluig-in is missing ? I did not found solution. But searching internet :

https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2220674
http://www.webupd8.org/2014/04/10-things-to-do-after-installing-ubuntu.html

but gstreamer-FFmpeg is installed by gstreamer1.0-libav package (I need to test in Sparky Linux because this mom I am running lubuntu of my friend). I will come back latter if I can run it in Sparky.

Confirmed that :

http://lin1.san.fast-serv.com:9844/; (Andy 80' Rare)

plays correctly in my Sparky Linux XFCE stable. Great sound.

Again. Thank you. pavroo.

Some ideas (for the moment).
1- A small editor that can edit easily bookmarks.xml would be great (separate from main program, aiming to leave it simple)

SparkyLinux 6 (Po-Tolo) LXQT.
uname -a 5.6.0-1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 5.6.7-1 (2020-04-29) x86_64 GNU/Linux

I have Preferences set to "don't ask questions on launch"  in File Manager. I have not had this
problem with other Distro's. Can someone help? Every time I make a launcher I have to right
click on the ICON and set "Trust this executable". Gets annoying because I have to test different
launchers with different applications.

Thanks

There has been a glitch - bug  in the forum software for awhile, websites get marked up as code.    For future reference, using  the output of      "inxi -r"      and marking up as code stops - negates the code breakup   example

Code: [Select]
paxmark@sway:~$ inxi -r
Repos:     Active apt repos in: /etc/apt/sources.list
           1: deb http://mirror.steadfast.net/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
           2: deb-src http://mirror.steadfast.net/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
Note:  this is on straight sid on the 10 y.o. atom. My sparky lxqt is the on other half of the dual boot
My output of what Pavroo asked you to do is  (in Sid).

Code: [Select]
sudo apt install firefox

Are you sure you want to install/upgrade the above packages? [Y/n/?/...] sudo apt install firefox

Note:  the graves and serious bugs do not appear to be that life threatening. Reading on bug 931334 is a good example - the reply to the first poster states why it is not as grave as stated.

Your mileage may vary (YMMV) as my example is in a straight Debian environment.  It would not hurt for you to post what pavroo asked.   "sudo apt install firefox"                    f

No - fiddling around with Firefox is irrelevant if the foundation has a flaw. libc6 affects everything, not just Firefox. Once the correct standard libraries are in place then it makes sense to look at Firefox in more detail.
