@Palshife sure, submit a PR at and I'll merge :). Thanks for you help!

I hacked on this a bit to perform an xset to prevent screen blanking. What would you think about incorporating that?

@HakBaRT no problem, done

Is it possible to get the package marked as working with the ARM-architecture? (armv5, armv6 and armv7)

Thanks in advance...

@garwalk thanks for spotting that problem, could you try release 5 and see if that fixes it for you?

This assumes the directory /usr/lib/plexmediaplayer exists, but it's never created. So when attempting to start this service Xorg will crash because it can't write to /usr/lib/plexmediaplayer/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log.

I had to do the following to get PMP to launch with systemctl:
mkdir -p /usr/lib/plexmediaplayer/.local/share/xorg
chown -R pplex:pplex /usr/lib/plexmediaplayer

@FallenSnow thanks for the feedback, I never considered someone wanting to run both the server and player on the same machine. I've change the plex player user to pplex. Let me know how it goes...

This service causes issues if it is installed on a machine with plex-media-server. Both services use the plex user but try to use a different home directory. Changing this service to use user plexplayer seems to alleviate most of the issues.

### Notice ###

If any user is having problems with PMP not appearing on screen - it is likely due to this: The basic workaround at the moment is to call PMP with `--scale-factor=1`.

I am not sure if it is worthwhile to add this to the SystemD service file, what do you think?

## EDIT 05/04/2017

If you are experiencing strange UI sizing, try setting `--scale-factor=1.5' (the UI is scaled to 720p per default when it can't detect the actual screen size).

@berot3, you need to add my key to *your* keyring, not pacman's. Something like gpg --recv-key 0xC87C468F6C0778EF; gpg --lsign-key 0xC87C468F6C0778EF.
