$ sudo adduser subsonic audio
$ chown -R subsonic:nogroup /tmp/subsonic
$ chown -R subsonic:nogroup /var/subsonic
$ chown -R root:root /var/subsonic/transcode
$ chown -R root:root /var/subsonic/jetty/*/webapp
$ chown subsonic /etc/default/subsonic
$ chmod 754 /etc/default/subsonic

Next, open the /etc/default/subsonic file with super user privileges:

$ gksudo gedit /etc/default/subsonic

And replace: “SUBSONIC_USER=root” with “SUBSONIC_USER=subsonic”.

Restart the subsonic service:

$ sudo service subsonic restart
