I’ve wanted a full Roon UI on Linux since I first took out a subscription.
My core runs on a Linux box that handles audio and video requirements and sits with my hifi system. I usually control it via my laptop. Over the last year or so I’ve had to use Windows 10 to get Roon functionality or use an Android tablet. I would normally use Linux on my laptop so I’ve never been really happy with this.
Earlier this week I found this thread: Ubuntu 17.10 64bit RoonServer with Roon on WINE I followed the instructions and got Roon working under wine on Linux Mint 18.3. The really surprising thing is that it runs quicker and smoother than on Windows 10 using the same laptop and performs much better than the Android app.
I was so impressed I thought it deserved a new thread so that others could try it.
