Hello guys, i really tried to find this answer in this forum, forgive me if this is a repost. I installed Rclone v1.51.0 on a Ubuntu 18.04.03 (x64) LTS on VPS with an Emby Server 22.214.171.124.
I´m using RClone for mounting Google Drive.
I created an user "rclone" (added to "root" group) with a folder "GDrive" for the mounting. I ran the mounting as rclone using the command below
nohup rclone mount GDrive: /home/rclone/GDrive --allow-non-empty &
It mounted normally and I can navigate through its files when i´m on VPS but when I´m using Emby, i try to search for the files and the maximum I can get is /home/rclone (after that the path disappears!)
My folders on GDrive mounting have the following permissions:
drwxrwxr-x 1 rclone rclone 0 Feb 26 00:04 TEST_EMBY
Considering Emby runs a service account with the same name "emby" I believe it doesn´t have enough permissions to view these files. I tried everything to resolve this but unfortunatelly it doesn´t work.
PS: It really seems something with RClone because when i unmount it and create a new folder under GDrive with rclone:rclone it can normally be seen in the emby browser
I tend to not run things as root unless you have to so a user is just fine as mine runs as a user.
If you want to start it manually, you can just tag --daemon on the end of it and that works fine and remove the nohup. That makes the process run as a daemon in the background once you hit enter. It'll still be there until you stop it or reboot.
You can use a service file as well but that requires a bit more to setup but that can start on boot.
