Description Of Issue
After downloading app I could not get it to open. Tried the suggestions: command in Terminal, turning off firewall. Still can not get anything to happen when clicking on Roon in the app center, the icon is no showing up on my desktop. Have to access it from the launch pad.
If we can get Roon to perform I will be a lifetime subscriber.


Just wondering if you downloaded Roon or Roon Server? The later is headless, no GUI.

Hi @Larry_Bontekoe,

@Carl raises an excellent question, are you trying to install the “All-in-one” version of Roon or RoonServer? These are two different types of configurations and only the “All-in-one” would contain a user interface, while RoonServer will need to be controlled by a Roon Remote.

Also, I would double check how exactly you have installed the App, you cannot open the .dmg file directly and you will need to drag it over to your Applications folder for Roon to actually be installed. Please see our Installing Roon guide for further information in this regard, all blue links above are click-able. Thanks!
