Having issues downloading and installing Plex.


Don't suppose someone can tell me exactly what to write in order to download and install PMS on Arch? I'm about to throw my computer out of the window.

First I tried:

Code:
sudo pacman -S plex-media-server-plexpass
And it cannot find anyting. I've only managed to find Plex Home Theatre using this method.

Next I tried:

Code:
sudo pacman -U https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.17.986-269b82b/plexmediaserver-0.9.11.17.986-269b82b.x86_64.rpm
Which resulted in an error stating:

Code:
error: failed retrieving file 'plexmediaserver-0.9.11.17.986-269b82b.x86_64.rpm.sig' from downloads.plex.tv : the requested URL returned error: 404
warning: failed to download https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.17.986-269b82b/plexmediaserver-0.9.11.17.986-269b82b.x86_64.rpm.sig
loading packages...
error: '/var/cache/pacman/pkg/plexmediaserver-0.9.11.17.986-269b82b.x86_64.rpm' : package missing required signature.
I mean, what am I doing wrong? Can someone please tell me exactly what to type in to download and install PMS?

Cheers

This is because Plex is not part of the official packages offered.

You will need to install this from the AUR.


here is the wiki.

Forgive me for being rubbish, but how would one go about installing something via AUR instead?

Ok,

I've entered this command:

Code:
wget https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/pl/plex-media-server-plexpass/PKGBUILD
then typed "makepkg"

Producing this error:

Code:
==> ERROR: install file (plex-media-server.install) does not exist or is not a regular file.
Any ideas?

Also tried the same with the tar.gz

Receiving this message:

Code:
sudo pacman -U plex-media-server-plexpass.tar.gz

error: missing package metadata in plex-media-server-plexpass.tar.gz
error 'plex-media-server-plexpass.tar.gz' : invalid or corrupted package
