OwnTone sends stream to multiple devices, but there are no multiple streams, because there are no multiple users or sessions.
owntone.service systemd unit.
See the official documentation for detailed configuration options.
The configuration file is
Running as the owntone user
The default user in
owntone. However, this user is not set in the service file. Edit
owntone.service and set the user:
[Service] User = owntone
If the service was started without the above changes, the user directory will be owned by
root. Change the owner of the directory if needed with:
# chown owntone:owntone /var/lib/owntone
Once this is fixed,
pipewire will be able to create its configuration files.
