Plex For Ubuntu/Mint

I’ve just had need to do this myself, and in an effort to not have to work it out again here’s the way to do it.

These will install the Repository’s that are needed (Plex itself, FFMpeg and libcec)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:plexapp/plexht
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jon-severinsson/ffmpeg
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:pulse-eight/libcec
sudo apt-get update

After that, all we need to do is install PlexHT itself, so

sudo apt-get install plexhometheater paprefs pavucontrol

That should get it all installed.

You could of course clone the Repo ( and compile it. Upto you, but the Repo method is easier.
