    Latest version of Squeezeplay for Linux ?

    Can anyone point me in the right direction to ascertain whether I am using the latest version of Squeezeplay ?

    I am currently using version squeezeplay_7.8.0~984_amd64.deb on my Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon desktop.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the speedy response.

    Forgive me being "thick" but I cannot see the appropriate package for my computer which I assume will need to be a later file name with amd64.deb appended.

    Use the x86_64 tgz file. Works fine on Fedora 29.

    I've stopping creating debian packages for squeezeplay x86_64 and i386, you'll need to use the tarballs going forward.

    Uninstall the debian package.

    sudo apt-get purge squeezeplay

    Create /opt/squeezeplay if it doesn't exist.

    sudo mkdir -p /opt/squeezeplay

    extract the tar file

    sudo tar -C /opt/squeezeplay -xzf squeezeplay-pulse-7.8.0-1116-x86_64.tgz

    Before upgrading from tar files remove the old /opt/squeezeplay folder before extracting the new one, otherwise you could have multiple versions of some files installed.

    And what about people with the same question who could have learn from your experience ?

    Joke aside, you have to run the squeezeplay.sh in the bin folder you have extracted. If you didn't extracted it on /opt/squeezeplay, you will need to edit it's first line and replace the path of the suqeezeplay folder.
    You might also want to add a '&' at the end to run it in the background

    TLDR:
    Code:
    /opt/squeezeplay/bin/squeezeplay.sh &

    You know what, i don't like running command from my desktop in order to get software
    I'll give you this, i made it myself quickly so i can't guarantee it but you if you'r under gnome, it will give you a nice icon an all.

    make a file named squeezeplay.desktop in /opt/squeezeplay/ and copy this inside :
    Code:
    [Desktop Entry]
    Name=SqueezePlay
    Comment=Launch Jive GUI 
    Exec='/opt/squeezeplay/bin/squeezeplay.sh'
    Icon=/opt/squeezeplay/200px-ControllerAppIcon.png
    Terminal=false
    Type=Application
    Categories=Audio;AudioVideo;Application;
    Then download the official icon form the wiki and save it inside /opt/squeezeplay/
    http://wiki.slimdevices.com/uploads/...lerAppIcon.png

    Finish by creating a "soft link" between the file you created and /usr/share/applications/
    Code:
    sudo ln -s /opt/squeezeplay/squeezeplay.desktop /usr/share/applications/
    you now see it in you application launcher under Sound & Video, with fancy icon

    I made this in 25sec, so i absolutely didn't look around to see if they was already some .desktop made, but i thought i might share anyway.
    Sorry for the noise if this was useless.
