You're Plexing!!!

Yesterday installed Plex, the server, on my trusty T60p, running a 32 bits XFCE Linux Mint 17.2; the Plex client was already installed on the Roku3.
No problems at all, during the install nor during the setup; only thing I had to do was to change the user under which Plex runs on the lappie...
At first I wasn't able to add content (create Libraries), and I was suspecting that it was related to the fact that I have an encrypted $HOME on the T60p, but, it turned out to be just a matter of permissions and users, editing a config file and restarting the service took care of it...
The T60p streaming performance is good, haven't done a lot of testing so far, but the thing looks quite promising... Perhaps I might revive the old Optiplex for Plexing the shit out of it...

Installing it was really straight forward:

Download the deb package:

Install the package:
sudo dpkg -i plexmediaserver_0.

Edit the username under which it runs:
sudo nano /etc/default/plexmediaserver

And re-starting the service:
sudo service plexmediaserver restart
