This is just a simple wrapper around the Tidal web player based on Electron for Linux.



For music playback to work you need the PepperFlashPlayer plugin.

On Ubuntu you can install Flash through Canonical Partners. Once installed, verify the path by opening Chromium and going to chrome://plugins. Click the details button on the top right and check that the Adobe Flash Player Location path is /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/ If not then set the pepperFlashPluginPath variable in main.js to the value reported by Chromium.
