Hello Emby comunity,

 

yesterday I have set up my first emby server emby-server-deb_3.5.2.0_amd64.deb on Linux Mint 18.3 (Mate).

The Setup of the system worked fine, I have left all settings as default.

 

I have added user emby to group paper

I have added user paper to group emby

 

 

But when I try to add Libraries I face this issue:

 

Folders:

I can add folder paths like this:

/

/home

/home/paper

/tmp/folder1/folder2/folderX

 

but I can not add this existing folder

/home/paper/images

(and not any other folder in /home/paper/)

 

When I try this, I receive

"The path could not be found. Please ensure the path is valid and try again."

 

Images:

I can display all images in /tmp and in subfolders (3 levels)

I can not display any images in /home/paper (although path was accepted and images are there)

 

Here the permission for /tmp:

 $ ls -l /
insgesamt 96

[...]

drwxrwxrwt  17 root root  4096 Sep 16 09:48 tmp

Here my permissions inside /tmp

$ ls -l /tmp
insgesamt 2608

This is the output about groups:

$ cut -d: -f1 /etc/passwd | xargs groups
root : root

[...]

paper : paper adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin sambashare emby

emby : emby paper

I have already restarted the system.

 

How can I solve this?

Any help appreciated

First of all, that configuration is a permissioning disaster.  Your problem is that you don't give the paper or emby group access permission to access /home/paper , you only gave user access permission.  Add a group to the folder.

Thank you, that pointed me to the right direction:

 

this

$ ls -l /home
insgesamt 12
drwx------ 38 paper paper 12288 Sep 16 09:28 paper

has to be changed:

 $ sudo chmod g+rwx /home/paper/
paper@dev30 / $ ls -l /home/
insgesamt 12
drwxrwx--- 38 paper paper 12288 Sep 16 09:28 paper

Inside /home/paper/ access for group already exists.

 

So now, it works :-)

 

Great - thank you very much
