Install Guide Linux
Because your specific Linux implementation can vary wildly from others, this guide is just a general overview. A fantastic thread by Wilsoncd2 can be found [here] (http://forums.plexapp.com/index.php/topic/71220-linux-install-for-plex-connect/?hl=linux) which may provide ideas for your Linux configuration.
- Extract PlexConnect
- Create Certificates and install them on the AppleTV and PlexConnect server
- Run PlexConnect
Extract the PlexConnect archive you [downloaded earlier] (https://github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/archive/V0.6.tar.gz). Place the folder in a location of your choosing. A good default path is "/usr/local/lib/PlexConnect".
Generate the SSL Certificates.
Use the [Mac Certificate Guide] (https://github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/wiki/Install-Guide-Mac-Certificates).
Run PlexConnect by first opening a terminal window, cd to your install path, then type the following:
Provide your Administrator password to complete PlexConnect startup.
You should now see messages like these in the terminal window: (Mac images shown, Linux will be similar) Write down the IP_Self: ###.###.###.### address as you will need it for the next step.
You can now minimize the Terminal window.
To shut PlexConnect down cleanly use CTRL-C (do not just close the Terminal window).
For manual configuration and advanced features see the [Advanced Settings page.] (https://github.com/iBaa/PlexConnect/wiki/Settings-for-advanced-use-and-troubleshooting)
If you wish to run PlexConnect as a daemon then please see this page.
