I'm a Foobar user on PC, and this seems like the best option for me in trying to leave the Windows world. I'm using Pop OS.

But I can't get this software to even play from second hard drives that ARE already mounted and working. LIkewise, I can't direct library searches to these secondary hard drive locations.

I am basic. I need step-by-step help. Assume I'm a seven-year-old with a learning disability.

Thanks in advance.


How did you install it ? It seems there is a flatpack version that creates problem with accessing files outside the home, if that is your problem, maybe try creating symlinks from your music to a folder in your $HOME, or try installing it without flatpack.
If you aren't using the flatpack version, other than a permission issue I don't know, maybe some screenshots could help.
