Clementine greeted me with an error message including the hint:
On a Linux system, this may be due to the inotify max_user_watches limit.
This prompted me to search for the issue and I found Arch/Manjaro - wiki/Increasing-the-amount-of-inotify-watchers · Issue #444 · guard/listen · GitHub and increase inotify file watchers in manjaro · Issue #4 · Pliavi/distros-tweaks-and-fixes · GitHub
I checked the /etc/sysctl.d/ directory and found only one of the files discussed in the above links (50-max_user_watches.conf) with the only content of: “fs.inotify.max_user_watches = 16384”
Also the Manjaro forum has one bit of information regarding the above conf file here: Inotify_add_watch Permission denied
Based on the Manjaro forum post of @merlock I have now set the limit to 204800.
So far, so good, and now comes the question: what is a “sane” value for the max_user_watches limit and/or what determines what a “sane” limit for a given system might be? The info I find to this is cryptic to me … Thanks a lot for your input.
