What works

What does not

Fonts are Times New Roman without font adjustments.


Install these fonts using this command in terminal [MUST HAVE WINETRICKS INSTALLED]:

What was not tested

Exclusive Mode: On Windows it just blocks other applications from outputting audio to source. Since it performs differently with each platform, I exempted it from my testing as there are plenty of packages that can already do that.

EDIT 3/7/23 - Wineserver Bug: A bug regarding Amazon Music's refusal to allow wineserver to close prior to a systemd shutdown has recently been brought to my attention AFTER submitting my test findings, which leads to why the issue itself was not tested.

AMazon Music Helper.exe

/home/user/.wine/drive_c/users/sebi/Local Settings/Application Data/Amazon Music/Amazon Music Helper.exe

After that, Amazon music helper is not going to start any more. Wineserver is going to stop when Amazon music is closed and no other wine applications are running.

Wine 8.0
by Matthew W Eckelman on Wednesday January 25th 2023, 18:46
Amazon Music works well with the same results of previous Wine 7.22-staging. Runing Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS. Comsumes more resourced thatn I'd expect. I now use Amazon Music on my Linux PC everyday!
1. Be sure to run "winetricks -q allfonts" or it won't work at all.
2. Had to instantiate the file: "/home/matt/.wine/drive_c/users/matt/AppData/Local/Amazon Music/update.ini" as it was complaining about it missing.
