Subsonic is a music server that lets you store your music on one machine and play it from other machines, cell phones, via a web interface, or various other applications. It can be installed using the subsonicAUR package on AUR.

Additional config

Run subsonic daemon NOT as root

Stop subsonic daemon is running

# sudo /etc/rc.d/subsonic stop

Add a system user "subsonic" without home folder and add it to "audio" group if you want to use the "jukebox" feature

# sudo useradd --system --groups audio subsonic

Change folder owners as follow. Path may changes; these are the default ones:

# sudo chown -R subsonic:subsonic /tmp/subsonic
# sudo chown -R subsonic:subsonic /var/subsonic
# sudo chown -R root:root /var/subsonic/transcode
# sudo chown -R root:root /var/subsonic/jetty/*/webapp

Change this line in /var/subsonic/subsonic.sh

${JAVA} -Xmx${SUBSONIC_MAX_MEMORY}m \

with this one

sudo -u subsonic ${JAVA} -Xmx${SUBSONIC_MAX_MEMORY}m \

Restart subsonic daemon

# sudo /etc/rc.d/subsonic start

Troubleshooting

UTF-8 file names not added to the database

You must have at least one UTF-8 locale installed.

If you start subsonic using /etc/rc.d/subsonic, and your /etc/rc.conf has DAEMON_LOCALE="no", then the subsonic daemon will be started with the C locale, and Java will skip any folders with "international characters" (e.g. ßðþøæå etc.). Either set DAEMON_LOCALE to "yes" (but this will affect all rc.daemons), or add a line to the beginning of /var/subsonic/subsonic.sh which sets LANG to an installed UTF-8 locale, e.g. LANG=nn_NO.utf8.
