I have Sonarr, Radarr, Kodi and some other things that all run as the same user so that they can interact with the media and storage directories.

Can't have 2 things (especially in the case of Sonarr and Radarr) run as 2 different users and expect them all to have a good time, I expect many people do the same.

Sonarr does not change the permissions of /var/lib/sonarr after a package update.

@pezz, I added the ownership of /usr/lib and /var/lib recently, mainly to fix most users setups. Though I think it still did it as part of post upgrade. Can you tell me a little about why you run as a different user? I'd like this package to work well for most people and I'm not sure which route would be better. Do more people bone their permissions and have issues or do more people run it as another user? :/

I'd like to see /var/lib/radarr removed from tmpfiles.

Some of us run Radarr as a different user and it fails to start because of it chowning that directory back to the radarr user.

Perhaps set the initial permissions in post.install but then repsect the user's choice from then on.

@smmalis37, have you tested Radarr w/o libgdiplus? It was probably just part of Sonarr's PKGBUILD when I copied it to use for Radarr. If you've tested and know it isn't needed, I can remove it. Otherwise, I'll test in the next few days and see what I find.

libgdiplus is a dependency of mono, not sonarr/radarr directly. There's already an issue on the mono package to move libgdiplus to an optional dependency (

Do you know what sonarr/radarr even use it for?

jack.mitchell commented on 2017-07-05 12:22

Could we make libgdiplus an optional dependancy, it's not required for operation of radarr and it pulls in mesa/libgl on headless systems.

How are you looking for it? I'm guessing you didn't try `sudo systemctl enable radarr` and `sudo systemctl start radarr` like all the other usenet daemons? From there, you'll need to load the webui. See Radarr's github page, the Readme and wiki can help you with issues.

Not working for me, I can't find the application once installed ...

^ And this thread has more details, if anyone is curious.
