I’m trying to switch away from Mint to Antergos for my Plex server but for the life of me, I can’t get Sonarr and NZBGet to work together.
I have the following accounts on my system:
roadhazard, plex, nzbget and sonarr
All belong to the ‘wheel’ group and I’m pretty sure I assigned the wheel group to my “tvshows” folder (will double check tonight). What happens is, Sonarr will tell NZBGet to download a file. NZBGet downloads it to the tvshows folder but sonarr can’t rename/import it due to permission errors.
In a bit of frustration, I even tried adding all these accounts to the sudoers file (and restarted afterwards) but STILL had problems with permissions. Permissions on the folder are:
drwxrwxrwx 4 roadhazard users 109 Feb 3 17:56 .
drwxr-xr-x 18 root root 241 Feb 1 18:18 …
drwxr-xr-x 3 sonarr sonarr 22 Feb 3 17:56 'Super Awesome TV Show’
drwxr-xr-x 2 nzbget nzbget 50 Feb 3 17:55 ‘Super.Awesome.TV Show.S01E13.blahblah’
How do I use umask to permanently adjust this folder so that existing files, AND NEWLY CREATED FILES/FOLDERS are open to the world? So that ANY user can do whatever they want to any file in there? Do I create my folder, go into it and just type: umask 000 ?
Or, is there a stupid-proof, step-by-step, ultra friendly newbie guide to setting up Sonarr and NZBGet to run under my account?
I’ve seen a LOT of posts talking about how difficult it is getting NZBGet working under Arch. Maybe I’ll do what others suggested… switch to SabNZB and dump Sonarr for Medusa or something else.
In Mint, NZBGet and Sonarr run under my account and I don’ t have any of these problems. I use Antergos on my gaming PC and would really like to switch to Antergos on my Plex server butman is this frustrating! (Don’t worry… not going back to Windows… ever.
