1 pointJust finished the setup of a new Raspbian install with motion. In order to make it work, as user i created a folder and gave it 777 rights. then in motion.conf in target_dir i pointed to this directory. It worked after clean install. Thanks a lot for your time.
1 pointLooks like it is trying to start the Assistant too early or there is issues with pulseaudio. I will need to look into this, @Emmet thoughts?
