After I've installed Clementine and imported (for the first time) my complete music library it seems to be impossible to add more songs.

I can however effortlessly add songs to a playlist - but not to the big library.

What am I doing wrong?

Open the preferences dialog box through tools menu.

Click on "Music Library" in sidebar of preferences dialog box.

Hare you can add more folders to your music library. Clementine will scan these folders on every startup for new songs and will add them automatically to your music library.

This is not the right answer... It does not add the folder to the existing library folder, it just extends the library view with the new folder, but the files are not moved into the library in the right place... – Steven Roose Jun 19 '15 at 20:02
