I had similar problems but after following a suggestion here it worked well.

just "chmod 444 account.txt"
and do the same for shares.txt and it'll work like a champ.

It works!
Okay, I've been having these invalid account problems also, even though I have a valid account and have formatted my account.txt as suggested in these comments.

I finally got sick of re-creating account.txt and removed my privledges as a user so it *couldn't* be deleted.

And guess what? Now it all works dandy again, from a user account and everything. I logged off and tried again, and again, it worked.

I hope this helps others.

hello everyone
they changed the format of the files, they don't fall the READMEs
anymore. This change has been active maybe 2 months, or 1 1/2 months, it is now march 1.

shares.txt is as always, a file containing simply a path to the shared folder

account.txt is now slightly different; it has two lines, though now they are

USERNAME (not email)

hope this helps

Re: Possible error in the documentation
I tried yesterday with my e-mail and it worked as an user after a few retries. And I think it doesn't matter if you run it as root.

Possible error in the documentation
I tried using my audiogalaxy username (instead of e-mail address) in account.txt, and I didn't get any "invalid account" error message.

New version of linux satellite
I ask myself when the Audiogalaxy team will remember that also exist Linux users, not only windows point-and-click dummies.. It's not so hard to fix a couple of stupid bug, when you WANT to do it..

Why you can't run it from a normal user ?
I run the satellite from a normal user and it works good, without any error (only that +x mode on downloaded mp3's, but who cares?).
If you post an error message maybe somebody could help you :)
