My personal Xubuntu htpc/server setup

1. Install Xubuntu

Enable auto login
Install Chrome
Install Chrome Remote Desktop + make it use same windows server...
Using Vino instead

2. Install Emby

Mount my external HDD for Emby to have full control: and,
also some bonus information for possible future use:

Autostart Emby
service file location /etc/systemd/system/
config /etc/emby-server.conf
ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 30

3. Install Kodi

Fix libcec

4. Install Dropbox

Fix Dropbox...

5. Install Docker and a few containers

sudo docker run -d --name portainer --restart=always -p 9000:9000 -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock portainer/portainer

Get the containers and some instructions from and

sudo docker run -d --name sonarr --restart=always -p 8989:8989 -e PUID=1000 -e PGID=1000 -e UMASK=022 -e VERSION=image -v /etc/localtime:/etc/localtime:ro -v /home/docker/sonarr/config:/config -v /mnt/my_passport/TV\ Series:/tv -v /home/docker/sonarr/downloads:/downloads hotio/suitarr:sonarr

Important: Sonarr needs adjustments in Settings -> Download Client -> Remote Path Mappings
