    Where are my music files?

    I am a newish Linux user (Mint) and have just installed LMS. I get the localhost startup screen and am trying to sort the settings so that the music files can be scanned. However, I can't find my music files from that settings page. These are at /dev/sdb2 on /media/philip/Big Disk/Musicfiles which shows up in my desktop filing system, but won't show up on the LMS settings browse function.

    The full info on that disk is /dev/sdb2 on /media/philip/Big Disk type fuseblk (rw,nosuid,nodev,relatime,user_id=0,group_id=0,def ault_permissions,allow_other,blksize=4096,uhelper= udisks2)

    I presume there is something to do with permissions? Or is it there but hidden away out of view? Or is there something about having to mount it (my thinking is it must already be mounted?)

    Thanks,

    Philip

    Most likely your LMS user doesn't have access to your personal folder.
    You should either put the music in a shared space, or give the LMS user
    access to your folder.

    How do I do that?

    PS: is LMS supposed to add an extra user? Can't see any.

    Mount the music disk to /media or something instead inside your home folder.
