Installing Plex Media Server from Software Center Doesn't Start Daemon
Closed, InvalidPublic


Plex Media Sever can be installed from the Software Center.

However after installing and launching the app (a web link to localhost:32400), you are presented with a 404.

Installing PMS installs the binaries and .desktop file for the service web interface.

But it doesn't actually start the PMS daemon in the background.

It is necessary to run:

sudo systemctl enable plexmediaserver.service
sudo systemctl start plexmediaserver.service

From terminal to do so.

Is there anyway to automate this final step of the process when installing?

This is intentional, just like with any other software you'd install, such as nginx, you need go enable the process and start it, after which point you don't have to do it in the future.
