I did a minimum install for Ubuntu.
Install chrome from the web
Install OpenSSH for convenience
sudo apt install openssh-sever
sudo systemctl status ssh
install atomic toolkit for easy software setup
sudo apt-get install git
sudo git clone https://github.com/htpcBeginner/AtoMiC-ToolKit /opt/AtoMiC-ToolKit
sudo bash setup.sh
Transfer settings from old sonarr
- Re-install Sonarr
- Run Sonarr once to get the AppData directory location
- Stop Sonarr
- Copy NZBDrone Config Folder to new Install (/home/”username”/.config/NZBDrone)
- Extract the backup zip file & restore the files extracted from the zip
- Start Sonarr once you have setup the data files
- As long as the paths are the same, everything will pickup where it left off
Create Backup Old Computer
Transfer watcher3.zip to new computer
Install Backup New Computer
copy over /usr/share/sabnzbdplus/sabnzbdplus.ini
copy over /usr/share/sabnzbdplus/admin/history1.db
copy over /usr/share/sabnzbdplus/sabnzbd/postprocessing
sudo systemctl restart sabnzbdplus.service
Plex install through ATC fails so download from website
copy data files from /var/lib/plexmediaserver/Library/Application Support/Plex Media Server to new folder
ensure permissions are correct for new plexserver
sudo chown plex:plex
Mount external drive with content to /media/Videos
Plex Running on Ubuntu / Linux / Lubuntu Doesn’t Display My External Drive
When moving all my files onto an external drive Plex was able to display the drive but was unable to read the content of the folder.
Changing group ownership and permissions did not solve this problem.
The drive was formatted with NTFS before being installing it in a housing and connected to the Linux machine.
The problem is caused by the default mounting parameters when first connecting the drive. In order to fix it you will need to manually setup the drive by editing the fstab file. Use this command
This will get you the drive UUID of the drive that you need. Look at the labels until one of them looks familiar. You can also use the built in disk utility to get this number. System > Disks > “Gear Icon” > Edit Mount Options but it’s harder than just doing it in the terminal.
Create a folder to use as the path for your drive. I used /media/Videos since that’s what I would be storing.
sudo mkdir /media/Videos
Open the fstab file and add this line to the end using the UUID that you just found.
sudo gedit /etc/fstab
UUID=E12345A1234C1A12345 /media/Videos ntfs-3g defaults,permissions,auto 0 1
It’s easiest just to restart your computer to get these changes applied. You could also unmount the drive and then run the mount command which will pick up the new settings from the fstab file. If you have trouble with this just reboot
sudo mount /media/Videos
Without doing the next couple of steps I didn’t consistently have problems but I did have problems with permissions and file transfer being denied
sudo gedit smb.conf
Scroll to the bottom and add into the section that was just created with the name of your share [videos] in this case
force user = yourUserName
And then restart Samba
sudo restart smbd
This other post helped me get up and running if you want another take on the same process.
