Syncing music files with desktop media player

Good day,

The music player applications cannot find my music files on my HDD unless I individually right-click on the song and select to play with gnome-music.

I am using SATAs to connect my two 4 terabyte HDDs to my motherboard permanently. I am using one of them to keep all of my media files. Tauon and gnome-music cannot find the music files on my HDDs. I use gnome disk to format and mount devices.

You can try to edit the file ~/.config/user-dirs.dirs and specify the variable XDG_MUSIC_DIR.

Thank you for the reply. I ran that and it came back with “permission denied”. I ran “ls $HOME” as well and post outcome is that could assist. I ran the XDG update but didn’t seem to do anything for me.
