Did a search for a Sonos + Linux but all threads were archived.
I want to add a +1 for Linux support.
I’m probably an idiot and missed something. I main Linux, and while my Sonos device shows up in Spotify in Linux it never connects, regardless of network (2.4 or 5).. I tried various 3rd party addons and could probably make it work, but why make it such a hassle for Linux users. In Windows the Sonos deivce works perfectly in Spotify as expected.
Love your product, the physical quality and the sound quality, but it’s annoying having to reboot into Windows to listen to music (especially when shitfaced). I would love to extend my Sonos speakers system. but the hassle just makes me ponder Bluetooth speakers instead.
By now, isn’t there enough Linux users to warrant Sonos integration? Again, maybe I missed something.

If trying to do a native Linux app you do face a lot of hurdles, something like the package method here: http://pascalopitz.github.io/unoffical-sonos-controller-for-linux/ works quite well and you only need one version to support any Linux based on the same CPU. Flatpack offers similar features.
I’d really like to see a new Sonos “dedicated hardware” controller. Something that could live in a case or an outlet box set into a wall. A non-touch device, real switches would be optimal and support folks with disabilities better.
Even a browser based approach would be great. If my garage door can come with a mini server that lets me control it from any browser Sonos should be able to do the same.
