Install HQPlayer Ubuntu Server

Trying to install HQplayer keep getting these errors

Add i


Your copy and paste selection in the background and terminal, is missing the r in hqplayer


This is what I’m using to install ?
sudo apt -y update
sudo apt -y dist-upgrade
sudo apt -y autoremove

sudo wget
sudo wget
sudo dpkg -i linux-headers-5.4.91-jl+_5.4.91-jl±6_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i linux-image-5.4.91-jl+_5.4.91-jl±6_amd64.deb

sudo wget
sudo dpkg -i libgmpris_2.2.1-8_amd64.deb

wget -q -O - | sudo apt-key add -

echo ‘deb [arch=amd64] Index of /rocm/apt/4.1/ xenial main’ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rocm.list
sudo apt update
sudo dpkg -i hqplayerd_4.23.1-71_amd64.deb
sudo apt install -f
sudo hqplayerd -s hqplayer hqplayer
sudo systemctl enable hqplayerd
sudo systemctl restart hqplayerd

sudo systemctl status hqplayer

This is wrong…

If this is wrong what is the proper command

As documented by AMD linked from my documentation page…

You said echo ‘deb [arch=amd64] Index of /rocm/apt/4.1/ xenial main’ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rocm.list wrong command.
So did this command echo ‘deb [arch=amd64] Index of /rocm/apt/debian/ xenial main’ | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rocm.list
Still run into issue when doing sudo hqplayerd -s hqplayer hqplayer
See screen shots.Can’t get past this all is fine untill this point ???

Got it to work.Had to do fresh install with 4.22.67 then update to latest some reason was unable to do fresh install to latest version.

Looking to do this myself on my ubuntu server.
Before I start, how does one control HQ player on a headless server - can it be controlled from within Roon on my Mac ?

Primary control methods

  1. HQPlayer’s web interface
  2. Official HQPlayer Client running on some other Windows/macOS/Linux device

Secondary control methods:

  • Roon
  • HQPDcontrol app
  • mConnect Player (HD) app
  • BubbleUPnP Android app

I just need to work out how to install on the same Ubuntu server running Roon. I have everything working so well with Roon on 20.04.5 Ubuntu server I am loathe to change it to 22.x but will try.

Or keep the two on separate machines. That’s what I do. I have Roon Server running on an old i5 NUC on Debian 11 “bullseye”. Nothing else on that.

Might be better as I have my Roon Server in my listening room for the main hifi - it’s on a fanless unit built by quietpc. It only runs Roon Server and nothing else so maybe best not to stress it.

I would like to run HQPlayer under Proxmox (8.1.3) in the VM and then use it with Roon. I have set up Ubuntu 22.04 TLS as a VM. My Roon core runs on my Synology (DSM 7).
I followed the existing listing from you and unfortunately I can’t get any further. Are there also detailed instructions for the new HQPlayer V5 that I can follow step by step?
I am a beginner and not familiar with all Linux features.
Thank you very much for your effort and help.

Best regards

If the intention is to run Embedded under Windows, best way is to use WSL with Ubuntu 22.04 LTS…
