ubuntu UMS.conf problem

Post by anndrox » Thu Dec 24, 2015 12:46 pm

I followed the instructions here viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2761
and when I edit my UMS.conf to include my shared folders they do not show up. However I can load the jar file through terminal and everything works... Is it the ums script in init.d ?

I am having exactly the same issue, by following the same thread in the link.
With the script 'service ums start' - the server starts up and can be seen on my ps3 and other devices.
However, it does not take any of the settings from the UMS.conf file, and just has a limited option of all my drives on the ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS server.

If, I locally manually runit with a GUI, it has all the correct settings !!??!?
Can someone help please.

UMS is clearly looking in the wrong place for the config file when using the script. By default that is ~/.config/UMS (that is, if no profile path argument is given). I really don't know bash and init.d, but the profile path must point to the folder where UMS.conf is located. It seems like this line is setting it:

Code: Select all

So the question is if the UMS.conf you edit is in that folder or not.

...also, ensure path is 775. Share your UMS.conf and debug if still not working...

I think you must additionally add this line:

And then it must be working.

I hope that was the right way.
