Do you want too Install Plex on a Linux device using? Follow the Plex Linux Install Guide, and you will find out how!

Linux is an amazing free operating system created by the Linux Foundation. The OS also has distros. Pretty much a fork of Linux (Specto and Genesis on Kodi). In this tutorial I’ll be using Ubuntu, one of the most user-friendly Distros. This will be quite similar to NAS operating systems. So, should we get into this Plex Linux Install Guide?

Why linux

Linux is good because:

  • It has plex support
  • It’s free
  • It’s open source
  • It’s doesn’t need a super-powerful computer, and can run with little power. I managed to run my Virtual Machine with only 2GB RAM and 4GB HDD.
  • Did I mention it’s free?

Install Guide

For this install guide I’ll be using an Ubuntu virtual machine, this should be similar to your devices.

  • Open up your web browsers and navigate to the Plex Downloads section of the Plex website,
