Greetings,

I don't normally post on here, so I apologise if I'm in the wrong place.

I currently switched over from Windows 7 to Linux Mint 16. Are Sonos planning to modify the Sonos Desktop Controller for use in Linux?

Can you do this already? If so, how do I go about this?

Thanks 🙂

Hi mister-smeeeth,

...funny! I switched from Linux to WIN hehe!

Here is a link at sonos.com where you can add your wish!

But I'm afraid to tell you that there is no big chance on your wish! It is officially "not planned"!

There are (unofficial! unsupported!) methods out there, for example SoCo on github (you will have to google; I can't post links on this forum yet) (SoCo/SoCo, not the older rahims/SoCo).

So I pivoted my unoffical chrome app to an unoffical electron based linux app. It doesn't do everything, but feedback and contributions are welcome. https://github.com/pascalopitz/unoffical-sonos-controller-for-linux/releases
