Sonarr can't access my Download folder but is in the same group?!


#1

I’m sure this is another ‘can’t see the forest for the trees’ type of post but I’m using Antergos and I FINALLY got all my NZBGet/Sonarr/Plex permission issues sorted out but I just now came across another problem.

In my /home directory, I have Documents, Downloads, etc. Owner is MeanGene and this folder belogns to the ‘users’ group. I added ‘sonarr’ to the ‘users’ group (and wheel). When I’m in Sonarr and want to manually import a file that is sitting in my Downloads folder, Sonarr can see /home/MeanGene but nothing beyond that. Why? In my Linux newbie mind, if Sonarr is added to the same group that owns a folder, it should be able to access it, right?

Never mind. Switched back to Linux Mint and all my problems disappeared.
