This may have been addressed before, but I have not been able to find an
answer by searching, so I hope someone can help.
I am running slimp3 on Debian - I know it is an older version but that
is what is available as a Debian package. The program is started by a
script and uses chown to become group slimp3. On startup, the program
reports that it can't write to its logfile and it can't read or write
the prefeerences file. If I start slimp3 as root, those problems go
away so it obviously a permissions problem, but I can't seem to fix it.

The permissions for the log file directory are
drw-rw-r-- 2 slimp3 nogroup 4096 May 16 06:27 slimp3
and for the preferences file
-rw-rw-r-- 1 slimp3 nogroup 2109 May 14 18:03 slimp3.conf

Any suggestions for what the permissions for the program's files should
be or directions to more detailed information about program setup would
be appreciated.

Your slimp3 directory is not executable. Try "chmod 775 slimp3".
