I do not see my MP3 files at all. I downloaded them via Amazon through the shop app an moved them to the home/nemo/Music directory. The permssion section is completely empty. Do I have to CHMOD them first ?

Have you tried to put them into /home/nemo/Music? At least this is where mine are. chmod 755...

I am not allowed to chmod and could not findout, how to get a root password yet :-(. Where do I have to register as a developer ?, I just seem not to find any info to that on the Jolla page and as far as I've understood, you get a root pwd, once registered, or am I wrong ?

@rgraeflin: In Developer mode menu, just set the password for SSH in the second point just after "Developer mode", something like "Distant connection". Not necessary to register somewhere else.

Settings -> System Settings -> Developer mode, there activate developer mode and you will get a neat terminal application in the apps, additionally to the ssh connection possibility above. In case you choose ssh, the user is "nemo", not root.

You could also try to upload your files with the usb cable (jolla as mass storage), then they should get automatically to the right place.
