As suggested in this tutorial I made a copy of the Motion configuration file in my home folder under ~/.motion/motion.conf . But Motion then still tries to access the config-file under /etc/motion/motion.conf . How do I fix this behaviour?
Here is what I get when I start Motion:
nuc@nuc:~$ motion  **could not open configfile /etc/motion/motion.conf: Permission denied**  Not config file to process using default values  Motion 3.2.12 Started  ffmpeg LIBAVCODEC_BUILD 3547904 LIBAVFORMAT_BUILD 3544067  Thread 1 started  Failed to open video device /dev/video0: No such file or directory  Could not fetch initial image from camera  Motion continues using width and height from config file(s)  Resizing pre_capture buffer to 1 items  Retrying until successful connection with camera  Failed to open video device /dev/video0: No such file or directory
