Music stops playing when screen goes off and session gets suspended
#1
Hi,

so at least I suspect what the thread subject says. How can I keep listening to music while screen is off for a longer time?

I found, that adding a user to group 'music' should do the trick like

Code:
sudo adduser <username> audio

but what I get is:

Code:
sudo: adduser: command not found

Currently I'm on Pinephone KDE (Manjaro/Plasma Mobile):
KDE Plasma Version: 5.22.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.86.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.14.10-1-MANJARO-ARM


Thanks for any advice!

EDIT: That DID NOT do the trick. As soon as the sesssion is suspended, the music stops. Even though I set 'Suspend Session' to 'never'.
So the questiom remains open: How to keep music playing while screen is off?

In Manjaro:
Code:
sudo gpasswd -a user group

After a while of trial and error, I came across the app 'Elisa', which plays radio streams as well as my music collection. It is able to play even if the screen is turned off. That's what I was looking for and even though the issue is not solved in general, I mark it solved for now.
