1. Intro

PGTrakt is a seamless user experience tool developed by PlexGuide along with the modified use of Traktarr to provide an effortless installation! PGTrakt does the following three basic things.

  • Provides a series of checkers to ensure that the user is able to install the program (sonarr and/or radarr)
  • Provides a user intuitive interface that enables the user to install PGTrakt from setup to deployment in under two minutes.
  • Provides the user to utilize Traktarr, but with modified variables to enable hasty installation of the process (basically you do not need to be a Linux Guru to get this up and going).

2. How To Setup

Follow these steps to ensure that you deploy PGTrakt successfully.

a. First Things First

  • Prior to deploying PGTrakt, Radarr and/or Sonarr need to be deployed to prevent problems. PGTrakt will stop the user from executing portions of PGTrakt if the program targeted is not executed! Furthermore, the user needs to login to the programs and at least import or setup one TV show! Why? Because PGTrakt will fail because it does not detect a drive! Users are not required to deploy both programs; just at least one!

  • Next, GDrive and PGBlitz users must have UnionFS deployed, meaning that the user needs to setup PGMove, PGBlitz, or PGDrives deployed! This is required for the path set portion!

  • Finally, keep in mind that if PGTrakt is deployed and you wish to make changes; do so... but you must redeploy PGTrakt again! If not, the changes made will never go into effect.

b. Trakt API-Key

To obtain the Trakt API, conduct the following steps:

c. Sonarr Path / Radarr Path

In regards to the paths, ensure that you have pgdrives, PGBlitz, or PGMove deployed! It's required for /unionfs unless r Radarr and Sonarr are using mounts outside of unionfs!

For most users, the following paths would be:

Sonarr: /mnt/unionfs/tv

Radarr: /mnt/unionfs/movies

Note: If your paths are different after /unionfs, please enter it correctly! Once set and you decided to mass deploy PGTrakt, many of your movies and tv shows will have the paths you set (meaning mistakes will cost you time).

d. Sonarr Profile / Radarr Profile

The profile is simple to set. Listed are the default profiles!

If you created your own profile, you may enter here; but be aware that everything is case sensitive. If you deploy a bad profile (which PG cannot check for), you will have to correct everything accordingly! In most cases, it's easy to put Any and then adjust Any in both Sonarr/Radarr for simplification.

e. Deploy PGTrak

Simple! Once everything is set, you can select this option. If both Sonarr and Radarr are not running, PG will stop you! If you are running one of the programs, PG will warn of the program that is not running and continue to deploy.

Please note that if you make any changes AFTER you deploy PGTrakt, the program must be redeployed! If not, the user will be confused on why the changes did not apply!
