Mine live in /var/lib/plex/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins.

Any tips on plugin support? I am not seeing a folder structure like most of the guides and would like to add something like the Hama Bundle to allow the AniDB for example to be searched.

@Nutellaeis, Plex should have everything it needs. You'll probably have better luck getting this kind of support on their forums.

Trying this I get an s9009 (Manifest) Error when I want to stream in a Browser. Android works though. Does this need any additional codecs to be manually installed?

I agree with @mmozeiko, standard practice is to not restart services as part of packages. If you want to document the hook suggestion, I'd be happy to add it as a comment or link somewhere.

@bobpaul: this is a bad suggestion. Restarting upgraded services should be left as a decision of system administrator and not enforced by package. What if I don't want to restart service? With your suggested modifications I will have no choice. If every package will start to do that that will be a lot of overhead. Like calling daemon-reload multiple times, or restarting service while service is doing something.

If you want to restart your service on upgrade, just create a pacman hook.

So whenever plexmediaserver is upgraded it needs to be restarted or else the web interface quits working. Can we have this done automatically in the install file? something like:

  #restart the service if it's running
  if systemctl is-active --quiet plexmediaserver; then
    echo "Restarting service..."
    systemctl daemon-reload
    systemctl restart plexmediaserver

  # The plex user's home directory needs to change too.
  if [[ "$( getent passwd plex | cut -d: -f6 )" != "/usr/lib/plexmediaserver" ]]; then
    usermod -d /usr/lib/plexmediaserver plex
    if [[ $? -ne 0 ]]; then
      echo "Could not change plex users home directory."
      echo "Run: sudo systemctl stop plexmediaserver ; sudo usermod -d /usr/lib/plexmediaserver plex ; sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver"

@lord_rel: Done.

could you remove "Z /var/lib/plex - plex plex" from plex.tmpfiles it can take quite a while to change premissions on a large collection and makes it seem like boot has hung for my system as it can take a while to change ownership for 619862 files and directories
