    When using the version of mt-daapd from Gutsy’s universe repo, I’m unable to successfully scan and locate music inside my media directories. I’ve tried pointing the server to a couple of different media directories to no avail. Let me know if any other information is required. Thanks in advance.


    Let’s talk about permissions here.
    The user that mt-daapd aka firefly is running as has different (lower) permissions than your user account.

    For instance it cannot peek into your ~

    Normally this user account is nobody/nobody, so you need to do either:
    a.) put your music in a directory that nobody/nobody can access (that is read+execute permissions on the directory, read on the files)
    b.) change permissions of said directory so that nobody/nobody can use it (+rx on directories, +r on the files)


    Thanks for the help, it worked beautifully!
