Same problem here. [Currently running on LinuxMint 17 with Cinnamon.]

This seems to stem from the "user= " line in minidlna.conf

No matter what (valid) user I put there and no matter what such users have as directory/file permissions, it doesn't work.

MiniDLNA seems to work fine when the "user= " line is commented out.

Perhaps using a numeric UID would fare better (which is hinted at as another valid option in the preceding comment). I have not tried using a numeric UID, nor do I have interest in doing so.
