Troubles setting up Plex in fresh Linux Mint install.
  • I am very interested in Docker, but was more or less trying to get it working for now while I learn more about Docker. I have a lifetime purchase for plex, so I'll probably stay with this for the time being unless I really feel the need pulling me.

  • Troubles setting up Plex in fresh Linux Mint install.

    Hello all, I've been reading this community from the outside for some time, and I finally decided to dip my toe into Linux a bit. I have an old PC I was using to run Plex through a Windows install, but this is now a Linux Mint Cinnamon machine.

    I have Plex Media Server installed and running, however I am having a hell of a time getting it to see my external drive where my media is located.

    Trying a bunch of research, it seems like it is a permissions issue that I cannot seem to shake. Plex is able to see the drive, though nothing in it. I've googled as much as I can, but none of the suggestions seem to help me. I've tried to run the command chown, though I get an operation not successful error in return.

    ls -la never shows the plex user or group listed, and I've tried for about 2 hours trying various things and have had no success.

    Additionally, the other two drives I have connected are stuck in read only as well.

    Anything I may have overlooked?

    What book(s) are you currently reading or listening? May 14
  • I finished Rigged by David Shimer just before this one. I really like the style of delivery here where there is seemingly no bias. A lot of quotes in the one I am currently reading, with evidence based context around it. Kind of letting you draw your own conclusions.

    I'm only two chapters in thus far, but I'm really enjoying it. I had to reach past Witch Hunt: The Story of the Greatest Mass Delusion in American Political History by Gregg Jarrett to get this one at the library, can only imagine the "facts" in that one.

  • Red Dead Redemption could finally be coming to PC, datamine suggests
  • AAA studios have taught me to be excited about nothing until after release. Even then, they can still take it away. I have a hard te believing this will be the labor of love this deserves, but I'd love to be proven wrong.

  • Alternative to bad parental advice: "Stand up to bullies"?
  • In the halls of my middle school, I felt like a ghost, invisible to everyone except the bullies who made my life a living hell. Every day, they taunted me, mocked my appearance, and tripped me in the hallway.

    I tried to ignore them, but the constant harassment wore me down. One day, pushed to my limit, I finally snapped. When the ringleader, Jake, shoved me into a locker, I swung back, landing a punch square on Jake's nose.

    The satisfaction of retaliation was fleeting as the principal's office became my next destination. Despite explaining my side, I was met with a stern lecture on violence and the consequences of my actions.

    But in that moment of defiance, something shifted within me. I realized that standing up for myself didn't have to involve fists. It meant finding the courage to speak out, seeking help from trusted adults, and refusing to let the bullies define me.

    That night my dad came into my room and savagely beat with a set of jumper cables for getting in trouble.

    I was handed this lovely flyer while grocery shopping

    I thought the woman handing me this was going to ask for help reaching something, but she was handing this out to everyone.

    Looking for a program to help manage windows on an Ultrawide.

    I recently purchased a 32:9 monitor, and quickly realized I need a program to help snap windows to different positions, other than the default options Windows 11 provides.

    Is there anything recommended I can use for this? I'd like to be able to hold a keybind and snap the windows around with arrow keys if possible.

    I found this channel on YouTube a few days ago, I've been listening to his mixes of these albums since.

    They mostly seem to be metal albums, and in a Q&A mentioned he tries to pull albums to mix from comments.
