Change Preferences?

In multiple places in the wiki, the environment variable $PLEX_MEDIA_SERVER_APPLICATION_SUPPORT_DIR is referred to, however this variable is not defined on my system. Is this something that I just define in my regular user's .bashrc and export? Or should it be defined in the /opt/plexmediaserver/start.sh like some of the other variables Plex uses?

Permissions/ACL

I had some trouble figuring out how to allow plex to access media on a removable device mounted in /run/media/<username>. The solution was adding an extended permission to allow plex to traverse the directory:

# setfacl -m user:plex:--x /run/media/<username>

I expect this has to be re-set each time the user directory is created, but thought it might be worth mentioning in the article or at least mentioning here in case it helps anyone else or I forget. Kit (talk) 02:51, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

We're talking about mounting with udisks2, right? -- Alad (talk) 13:03, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Plugins directory

Inform /opt/plexmediaserver/Resources/Plug-ins is better than inform $PLEX_MEDIA_SERVER_APPLICATION_SUPPORT_DIR/Plex Media Server/Plug-ins only. Moreover, this last "information" is wrong.

Outdated page

This page is currently outdated. There is currently no trace of a plex directory inside /etc/systemd/system, and nowhere else to set things like the plex user. The only configuration file currently available seems to be the, quite bare, /etc/conf.d/plexmediaserver file, and the only way to discover this is by looking inside the package.
