I’m trying to setup emby on my computer and am getting an error that emby requires write access to a directory, however:
$ ls -l /home/emby/Library/
drwxrwxr-x 2 emby emby 4096 Sep 3 18:39 DVR
drwxrwxr-x 2 emby emby 4096 Sep 3 18:41 Movies
I’m getting the error when setting up the DVR function and directory.
I found this:wiki-archlinux-org/index.php/Emby
Emby runs under the user and user group
emby using systemd’s DynamicUser feature. By default, Emby will have at most read permissions to your media files thanks to systemd’s filesystem abstraction.
Optionally you might want to give emby write permissions and enable media deletion or local metadata saving. To do that you can extend the systemd service:
This will add the
emby user to the
share group, and enable write permission to the
/mnt/share directory through systemd. Note that you still need to make sure the
share group has write permissions to the actual directory.
But…I honestly don’t know what that means.
Am I suposed to created the directory and file “emby-server.service.d/write-permissions.conf”? And…add each library directory to it?
Any help here is appreciated.
