on www.digitalsignage.com click the media cloud label in the grey ribbon, then click download and then click Linux on the label in the grey ribbon.

May I ask why you want linux? The signage player for linux have been depricated a long time ago and are no longer supported?
why not use Windows or an Android player?

I would recommend using Windows as the Android player is a bid questionable and not ready for production use.

The domain you need to connect to if you are using the signage cloud is as it sais in your image, galaxy.signage.me. You shouldt have an option to just use Default server as I remember?

Kind Regards,
Jonas

We have thousands of successful Android deployments in the field, BUT, with Android, CPU stress can create racing conditions which can lead to errors, so it all depends on the content used... So Android is an amazing platform for signage, but has a limit on CPU load.

Out of interest, what spec of android players are you using?
