Files not being registered in susbsonic server site

Postby hamhub7 » Sat May 30, 2020 4:28 pm

Hey guys, I am setting up subsonic on linux for the first time (I have set it up on windows before) and I am using kubuntu as my distribution. After installing it from snap, I was able to navigate to the localhost:4040 page and get access to the server. I have added my music folder to the media folders, but I am unable to see any of my files, both in the web window and in the mobile app. I have the files sorted in folders according to artist and album, but I cannot see any of the folders I have in there. I have the directory linked (/home/hamhub7/Music) and I have verified that it is enabled and that the files are actually there mutiple times. I'm stumped, because I got subsonic running flawlessly on Windows. Any ideas about what the problem might be?

The common problem switching from Windows is the rights system at linux. As usual at linux, the person who is seeing the music folder is in most cases not the same user as subsonic.
So you have to assign the music folder to subsonic, otherwise subsonic can't access the folder.

You have to use something like

sudo chown user:user /path/path

but there might be also another problem

For your reference ... or-debian/

The subsonic snap runs in confined mode. This means that the app does not have free access to any random folder on the filesystem. The recommended way to grant access to your media is by connecting the snap to the removable-media interface via:
Code: Select all
$ sudo snap connect subsonic-arubislander:removable-media

And then bind mounting your current media folder under /media/subsonic/ for instance.
