The sabnzbd 3.0.0 release is python3, yay! I've also moved the install from /opt to /usr/lib/sabnzbd and /var/lib/sabnzbd. The .install file should move things around as needed, but please post if it doesn't.

Oh yeah, I don't use it headless so I didn't consider that.

@terminalmage: See other packages like qbittorrent-nox. I may be mistaken, but a user systemd is only started after login, not useful when using a headless server.

Why not just use a user unit?

I have this:

% cat ~/.config/systemd/user/sabnzbd.service [Unit] Description=SABnzbd binary newsreader

[Service] ExecStart=/opt/sabnzbd/ -l0


francoism90 commented on 2018-03-02 13:23

Could you please add a sabnzbd@ service?

[Unit] Description=SABnzbd binary newsreader

[Service] User=%i Group=%i ExecStart=/opt/sabnzbd/ -l0 -f /home/%i/.sabnzbd.ini

Sorry, I forgot to push...

@Revelation60 This has been outdated for a bit now -- are you planning on updating to 2.2.1 anytime soon?

Revelation60 commented on 2017-04-09 18:42

PSA for update to 2.0.0:

The organization of the download queue is different from 0.7.x releases. So 2.x.x will not see the existing queue, but you can go to Status->QueueRepair and "Repair" the old queue.

Is anyone else seeing excessive redirects when trying to download the package? Sorry, using pacaur.

Sabnzbd can't find pyopenssl unless I append 'PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages' to the start of /usr/bin/sabnzbd. Terminal output without the above, for me, reads: 2016-09-16 05:02:39,249::INFO::[SABnzbd:514] pyOpenSSL... NOT found! - Try apt-get install python2-openssl (SSL is optional)

It doesn't stop the program from starting and running, but try a regular start up in terminal and check the output. It might just be unique to how I have my env configured. If not, here's what my /usr/bin/sabnzbd shell script now reads:
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages python2 /opt/sabnzbd/ -f ${HOME}/.sabnzbd.ini "${@}"

or if loading configuration from /opt:
PYTHONPATH=/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages python2 /opt/sabnzbd/ -f /opt/sabnzbd/sabnzbd.ini "${@}"

I think this should work in every case (excluding a non-standard location for site-packages), because it only changes the env variable for that one execution instance. Same probably goes for the sabnzbd.desktop exec line and systemd service, but I haven't tested these yet. Anyhow, thanks for maintaining this package Revelation60 :)
