    LMS on Zorin Linux

    So Iíve been running LMS on my SFF Asrock Beebox 3150 running Windows 10 for some time fine but now itís gone pair shaped.
    The SFF PC only has 2gb ram and 32gb EEC HD.

    Iíve recently installed Zorin Linux on my wifeís old Dell Windows 7 laptop and have been impressed with itís simplicity and speed.

    Will it run LMS?
    Which is the correct file to install and could some Linux guru post the step by step install instructions.

    Thanks from a Linux newbie.

    Should be same as any Ubuntu OS. Just download and install with GDebi the amd64.deb file at http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nig...ex.php?ver=7.9

    or if adventurous try the new LMS 8.0 at http://downloads.slimdevices.com/nightly/?ver=8.0

    edit: https://zorinos.com/help/install-apps/
    Apps in .deb files.

    Please make sure you trust the app's source before installing software from third-party sources, as your computer and personal data may be vulnerable to a breach when running apps from unknown sources.

    Some third-party apps can be downloaded from the web in the form of .deb install files for Linux.

    As Zorin OS 15 is based on Ubuntu 18.04, select to download the corresponding package from the app developer's website.
    Double-click to open the .deb file. After verifying that you trust the source of the app, you should see the Software store window showing information about the downloaded app.
    Press the "Install" button. You may be prompted for your password during the installation process.

    After the installation, you should see the newly installed app in the relevant category of the Zorin Menu.

    Thanks for your assistance Slimchances all installed and Tidal is now working.
    My local music store is on an external Iomega drive and when plugged into the SFF PC Zorin sees it and I can browse the files.
    However, within the LMS server settings via my IPad when trying to perform the first scan I can only see a very limited folder structure.
    Do I have to do it on the pc itís self?

    I am not sure if the Ipad would be compatible with a Linux install. I have only tried android which worked. Sorry I can't help
    Edit: it should work from the server itself. The only issue with the music files might be permission problems. On my PC with my music I am the owner and have read write privildges

    It’s the same on the PC SFF I can only see these directories within LMS and not the external USB drive but I can browse it within Zorin Linux fine.

    You may have to set ownership/permissions of your Music Folders/Files.

    This might help

    What is the file system on the external drive? (ext,NTFS,FAT...)

    The link I gave is to set ownership/permissions on EXT file system which is the usual Linux FS but your external drive may be formatted to a Windows FS like NTFS

    EDIT: I may be wrong about this last statement . It may be possible to set permissions for a Windows FS. It has been awhile since I dealt with these issues
