http://askubuntu.com – i run ubuntu 11.10 with gnome-shell 3.2 on a mbp as a 3rd partition. my music folder is stored in snow leopard which is from the linux perspective this dir: /media/hdd\ 10.6/Users/Username/Music/ to browse my mac partition(s) from within linux i need root access. so basically i play my music at the present time with rhythmbox by doing this: sudo rhythmbox /media/hdd\ 10.6/Users/Username/Music/iTunes/iTunes\ Music since it makes sense to have only one music folder instead of 2 or 3 for every partition. what i did then was to edit sudo gedit /etc/mpd.conf and change the "music_directory (HowTos)
