I have my media on NTFS partitions which I access via Ubuntu.

 

I use gnome-disks tool to set mount options on my partitions:

 

I tried the following mount options:

rw,x-gvfs-show,permissions,uid=emby,gid=emby

and the following path:

/media/chriad/additional-storage
drwxrwxrwx  1 emby   emby    28672 Mär 17 11:36 additional-storage

I changed all the rights recursively in all the files in this folder

sudo chmod -R ugo+rwX additional-storage/

Emby can still not find that folder.

 

What am I missing?

Thanks

can you su -u to emby and get to the folder from the cli?  if not, theres a permission issue.  also, set uid and gid to the emby id, i don't think it works with the name.

It was indeed a permission problem. I think the problem was similar to the one in the thread "Ubuntu Permission issue".

 

In the end what did the trick (I think) was:

setfacl -m g::rwx,d:g::rwx /media/chriad

but I think the mount options are fine.

 

Thanks
