Installing Roon Core on a headless Mac mini

Hi all,

I’m a Windows user. My father in law is an apple user. He would like me to install Roon core on his Mac Mini. Are there clear instructions for this somewhere or could a generous user please send me some clear instructions?
Many thanks.


Hi Steve,

This KB page should get you going.

Thank you. Can I install Roon server remotely using a MacBook Pro or do I need to attach a monitor and keyboard to the Mac mini?


Remote Desktop will let you administer the MacMini from the MacBook Pro.

Screen sharing comes built in with OS X these days – no need for Remote Desktop. You will need to enable Screen Sharing in the mini’s Sharing preferences first though.

Afterwards you can take over the mini by starting the screen sharing app on the MacBook.
