Flagging Out of Date:

This package is the non-plexpass package, it gets updated less frequently. Be sure to flag the right package. You can find the plexpass version at https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/plex-media-server-plexpass/

Current Issues:

The plex user's home directory needs to be changed, but likely can't if Plex Media Server was running when you upgrade. The package will tell you what to do, but of course that is easy to miss. The soluiton is to run sudo systemctl stop plexmediaserver ; sudo usermod -d /usr/lib/plexmediaserver plex ; sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver.

What is your output for the following commands: pacman -Q plex-media-server; pacman -Ql plex-media-server | grep “.service”

@techwiz, See the command to try to start the plex media server [ricardoas30@arch-linux ~]$ sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver Failed to start plexmediaserver.service: Unit plexmediaserver.service not found.

@techwiz, After the failure I installed it again and this time without errors. Now that it is apparently installed I want to start plex and use it. Thankful.

techwiz commented on 2020-05-27 14:32

You’ll want to try installing the Plex package again. Your first attempt failed because of missing dependencies, which you’ve just installed.

@techwiz, Another thing, did it work better now? the package installed without any errors but the plexmediaserver services are not available to start. I did not understand.

ricardoas30 commented on 2020-05-27 14:28

@techwiz Yes, I understood. I read on google that I should give the command $ pacman -S base-devel I did and it worked. I'm just afraid of having a problem with the pacman in the future. Thankful.

@ricardoas30, I think you are missing AUR build dependencies. Please follow the following wiki: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository#Getting_started

Hello, I am trying to install the package but it returns an error message.

==> ERROR: Cannot find the fakeroot binary.

Could someone help me with the installation of this package? What am I doing wrong ?

Thankful.

@fryfrog, I'm not sure of the exact order, but plex-media-server.service.d is always scanned whenever systemd loads plex-media-server.service. I want to say it would override anything in the regular .service file because it should only be loaded after the service is loaded, but I'm not sure how it would handle re-defined values.

fryfrog commented on 2020-05-01 17:13

@techwiz, I think a few of the items in the file are required for Plex to work. I wonder if the override would trump the EnvironmentFile=/etc/conf.d/plexmediaserver?
