I use Plex via my Rokus or Fire TV, but bad news for those who play movies directly from PC to TV https://www.engadget.com/2019/08/15/plex-desktop-app-downloads-ui-home-theater-pc/?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly9uZXdzLmdvb2dsZS5jb20v&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAE34n1RyJ1GrFNaVHCve3xzK_R8FIDAWBo__Q...

Has anyone wondered why Android apk packages are small compared to Flatpaks and Snaps? I have. Maybe Google solved the problem with sandboxed apps without using a lot of data? I think Flatpaks and Snaps make Linux look inferior on a technical level and that's not good. I'm not saying Flatpak and Sn...

Re: What Linux Needs To Do To Reach The Masses.

He should have at least used the Ubuntu LTS release, those in-between Ubuntu releases are buggy if not outright garbage. Screen resolution is not usually an issue on old desktops or laptops. Wifi can be solved with a wifi dongle if no other solution is found. The only real issue is suspend, which of...

Re: Plex Media Server not working

I can get it to work doing the following: $ sudo systemctl status plexmediaserver We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things: #1) Respect the privacy of others. #2) Think before you type. #3) With great power comes gr...

Re: Plex Media Server not working

[SOLVED]Plex Media Server not working

This has worked great until the last Plex update. I updated within the Plex app itself on MX, and now when I launch it I get "No Connection".
