Hola,

I used my squeezbox for years without problem under windows.
I moved to LinuxMint 15 (ubuntu) and downloaded logitechmediaserver_7.7.2_all.deb from Logitech.
I run Firefox 22.0
Everything fine until I rescan my files.
No way to rescan always I
get 0 albums with 0 songs by 0 artists.


Path is right : /home/pedro/Music

I tried other path, other files, only mp3 etc...
I put the music folder on share.
I check the problem on internet and did not see the problem solved.
I cleared all cache I could (Bleachbit)
Of course I "Clear library and rescan everything"

Thank you in advance for your help

Maybe the usual permission issue under Linux . Make the music folder and files readable for all users .

LMS runs under its own user account on Linux ,so it probably has no rigth to read anything under user "pedro" .

Thank you I work on this side but with no succes.
Logitech media server is an autorized user but that doesnot work...

Can you browse the files trough "music folder" if they are invisible there LMS does not have the rigths to see them .

Its actualy more about the permissions on the folders and files not LMS .
You can use a terminal to change the file permissions on the music files . Sorry not near my Linux pc so i can't remember the exact syntax , but you should include the -R option while doing it R is for recursive so you issue the command once at the top of the music file tree and it does it to every file below.

however there is another quirk , is this an USB drive that gets auto mounted ? If so search this forum for possible solutions .
There are several of them .
My prefered way is to have the USB drive in ext3 format and mount it permanently via fstab so you can have controll over it as any other drive on the machine , USB drives normally get auto mounted to the loged in user ( who is not the same as the LMS user account )

When I read this, I checked and I saw files into the "music folder".
Then I saw that files were indexed and all back to normal.

I am sorry I am not a good example for the community because problem is solved and I do not know why.

Thank you very much

Cordially
