Installing Emby

#1

Post by mitnworb » Sun Oct 21, 2018 8:21 pm

I have searched and can't find anything specific about Installing Emby on MX17.1. I have looked thru as many posting as possible and they almost always refer to Ubuntu and I have tried to make some of those methods work but nothing would take. Does anyone know if there happens to be anything her regarding this or at least know where I might find some instructions for MX. I am not the most technical with linux yet but I am learning.

Think that Emby is proprietary, if so it will not be in MX repos.-+

I never even heard of this, but I see many text and video hits on a web search on "install emby server debian 9"

This page has the deb you would download & install. Use the dropdown to select and download the debian X64 deb file.
Clicking on the downloaded file will bring up the gdebi-gtk program to install the deb.
Once it's installed, it says to "Open a web browser to http://localhost:8096"

They have a pretty good wiki.

It will installs with nasty looking error because it need systemmd which MX-17/18 does not have enabled (and very persuasive asks us not to enable it).

Code: Select all

$ sudo dpkg -i emby-server-deb_4.0.0.2_amd64.deb

However you can manually launch /opt/emby-server/bin/emby-server as root and everything should be working, at least at my side the wizard appeared

And you can boot into systemd if you want by clicking on Advanced Options.

The day I decide I drastically in need of systemd on my desktop I most likely will switch distro.
