Tidal post preview

Working Tidal music app on Ubuntu (18.04/20.04)

Tidal as an Electron app on Kubuntu 20.04 LTS

Tidal does not provide a native app for Ubuntu/Linux in general. As a temporary solution, I am using an Electron app developed by Mastermindzh. Install it according to the instructions on the site.

Using snap to install it

Go to the releases page at https://github.com/Mastermindzh/tidal-hifi/releases and copy the link to the latest .snap file. (→ Right click it and copy the link).

Open a terminal and enter the following command:

wget <Copied link>

So, for example:

wget https://github.com/Mastermindzh/tidal-hifi/releases/download/2.0.0/tidal-hifi_2.0.0_amd64.snap

Then, install the package:

snap install --dangerous <file>

An example:

snap install --dangerous tidal-hifi_2.0.0_amd64.snap

Open and run the app

Now, go ahead and run the installed application. Just sign in with your account and listen to some music!

Alternative methods of installing it

If the mentioned way does not work for you, check out the README for the repository at https://github.com/Mastermindzh/tidal-hifi/blob/master/README.mdMastermindzh provides a really good documentation and makes the whole process pretty easy for everyone.

Releases are also available for Arch Linux, Mac and manual compilation. Have fun!
