So... Unintentionally I put the music folder as the system folder and now it takes forever to scan, even by it gets into a loop when it starts to scan the /dev folder, so I've been looking for ways to set the music folder without opening the application, or reset application settings

Note: user-dirs.dirs don't work


You can do it with gconf-editor.

If not installed do sudo apt install dconf-editor, open the app (you'll find it in Applications -> System menu) and go to io.elementary.music.settings where you can find the music-floder key which you can then change manually.
