The change in subsonic home directory does not bring across the file. You need to manually copy it over `cp /var/subsonic/ /var/lib/subsonic`. Otherwise you will loose any settings (in my case, my license and LDAP setting).

My new subsonic-beta package allows to run subsonic as its own user. I've also fixed the dependencies, as libcups doesn't appear to be needed (which would also be weird, why need a printing lib).

FYI, this works with both the armv6h and armv7h architectures, if you want to add them to the 'arch' array.

I was not able to use the Subsonic jukebox mode (playing music through the servers audio interface) with only jre7-openjdk-headless installed. Installing jre7-openjdk and restarting the subsonic service fixed the problem.
Can anyone check if that behavior is reproducible?

I don't know if this is a bug in jre7-openjdk-headless, Subsonic, or my own configuration.

To check that audio from my headless is working I tried aplay. It worked.
possibly related:
Using jre7-openjdk pulseaudio is definitely not required.

If this is not the right place for this report please forgive me and point me in the right direction.

Came here to say that it should be depending on headless java. probably not on openjdk-headless 'java-runtime-headless' so that it will work for those crazies that use oracle jdk ;)

It's been 3 months since this was last mentioned. If no-one is currently maintaining it I can take over.

Is this still maintained? I use subsonic as well and already manage the plexmediaserver aur. I can watch this as well if you like.

Today I was migrating my Subsonic server to a fresh ArchLinux box and ran into problems with cover art thumbnails -- no thumbnails would display. After some troubleshooting, I determined that libcups is a dependency for Subsonic. Once I installed libcups everything worked fine and Subsonic stopped throwing errors.

Maybe this got missed in the dependencies list because it is a common package.

Alternately, I noticed that jre7-openjdk-headless could be used since Subsonic explicitly invokes java with the headless option. ArchLinux does link jre7-openjdk-headless to libcups.

Hopefully this saves someone all the time I spent figuring that out. :)

I've made an update with systemd support here
