A quick guide on how to install Plex Server in Ubuntu without the Ubuntu Desktop for a dedicated media server. Don’t bog down your gaming rig any more!
Further to my post last year about installing Plex on Fedora; I have recently been asked on twitter by @mikestecker how to set up Plex without a gui (no desktop) for a separate NUC style server box. Well, after a bit of experimentation with VirtualBox (I don’t have another spare computer to setup as a server box sadly – donations welcome *wink*) I have streamlined the setup and present them to you here!
Are you a web developer or designer? Do you want a local LAMP server for all your building and experimenting needs? Do you often use WordPress but up until now all your work has been done online, tying you down to the speed of your internet connection to get work done? Well no more!
Plex is a great way to get access to your media files anywhere you want them. However, setting up Plex on Fedora can be a little bit tricky if you’re not sure what you’re doing. Save yourself the silent screams of rage and use my easy to follow guide to set up Plex securely and with the minimum of fuss.
Spam comments are a nuisance. I’ve just spent about half an hour going through comments posted to this site in the last week or so, most of which it has to be said were rubbish! However, there are better ways of dealing with this build up of bot-posted baloney (or is it balogna – tangent) automatically. WordPress does it’s level best to cut out most but some always gets through. Here I will go through a variety of methods to stop spam comments for good.
Like CodePen? Use Ubuntu? Would you like to combine the two in a far more integrated way? Then read on!
As I have written about in an earlier post I quite like Codepen. In many ways I find it easier to code with than just Gedit. I can see the changes I make in real-time without flicking between my editor and my browser. All I felt it was missing was a bit of desktop integration.
Support for Nvidia Optimus is coming on in leaps and bounds in Ubuntu, I especially love how it’s shaping up in the next release of Ubuntu – 14.04 Trusty Tahr.
Having used Bumblebee up until now to enable my discrete card I can’t wait to try out Prime support.
