Hello all, new to the forums but have been using Plex for about 6 months and love it. 

 

I saw in another thread that there was a linux client floating around these here forums: 

 

http://forums.plexap...a-linux-client/

 

I have been unable to find it so I thought I'd see if it's true and where I might be able to get it.

 

I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 and would love to make it my total home theater soultion with a Plex client.

 

Thank you very much for any help, cheers.

Wow, that was fast, thanks. 

 

I am getting this error:

 

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 plexhometheater : Depends: libcec (>= 1.7) but it is not installable
E: Unable to correct problems, you have held broken packages.
 

 

I installed libcec from Synaptic but it didn't help.  Any ideas how to fix this dependancy? 

 

Thanks again.

Thank you drzoidberg33.  For some reason, after I added the 2 other repo's as you suggested, it stll gave me the same error.  I had to load the libcec package from Synaptic, and after that, it installed fine.  Thank you very much for the help.

 

I've been using a mac mini for 6 months or so as my media center with Plex.  I just built a new computer this week and am very glad to have Plex HT running on it!  Excellent job folks.

I have been waiting for a Linux Plex client for a very long time and I'm now patiently waiting for the next release because all my music is in FLAC and these don't play at all on the current builds.

I also have quite a bit of my music in FLACC and was wondering when support would be implemented.  Plex is getting better by the day.

Didn't really want to start a new thread for this so I'll ask here. I went with Xubuntu 13.04 and I am seeing talk of ubuntu 13 not working with PlexHT just yet. Am I totally hozed and need to start over with the last LTS?

You need to purchase Plexpass during the beta phase: https://my.plexapp.c...scription/about
Or wait until it gets released to the public.
Or compile it from source: https://github.com/p...-theater-public

Sorry to drag this up,but I've tried to access the linked thread, and get an error stating that I don't have permission to view the thread. I'm at the stage the previous poster was, but am obviously missing something in trying to install this...Can anyone assist?

 

Thanks in advance.

It's a Plexpass only thread. Until the Linux client + win/Mac get out of beta access to it is limited.
