Stop Job Is Running for Plex Media Server

hey all, I have Plex Media Server (snap) installed and on shutdown I get a delay of about 15 seconds for “stop job is running” for Plex Media Server;
my system.conf is set at 5s:
/etc/systemd/system.conf #DefaultTimeoutStopSec=5s
any thoughts to kill this service faster?
thank you for your time!

I’ve had no issues with the AUR package, try that instead.


aur/plex-media-server [+326 ~2.11] [Installed]
Ditch the SNAP dude - that’s the last choice and the least popular.

aur/plex-media-player 2.58.0-4 [+87 ~0.87] [Installed]

Also the player…

The TWO main reasons I left Linux Mint and installed Manjaro in the first place :wink: With Mint I had the SNAP server and the appimage player which didn’t support native audio passthrough to get Dolby on the receiver…

started the service fine… can’t see my ntfs mounted drives anymore, even though I had them auto mounted…

Well I’m not sure how you automounted them, but they need to be persistent really… I started by creating folders /mnt/T3 and /mnt/T4 for my media drives.
Last year I used gnome-disks to set them, they look like this (using labels instead of UUID’s) in that app:

Important because qBittorrent RSS is told to use /mnt/T3/ or /mnt/T4/ locations to access the disks.

Whilst I set these mounts in gnome-disks and later in systemd, they appear in fstab like this:

LABEL=T3 /mnt/T3 auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0
LABEL=T4 /mnt/T4 auto nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show 0 0

Mine are not NTFS, though, so I’m not sure how yours needs to vary.

I followed a guide posted here:
UUID=THE-UUID-YOU-COPIED /home/canelesso/ssd250 ntfs-3g auto,nofail,uid=1000,gid=1000,utf8,umask=022,defaults 0 0
the auto mount works, even worked on the Plex Media Server snap package, but not the AUR I just installed.
That “mount Options” window you have open, is that inside Plex?

No. I don’t edit fstab - for a quick easy GUI way I use gnome-disks.
For a permanent way I do systemd mounting.

Something like this:
sudo touch /etc/systemd/system/mnt-T3.mount

For my ext4 formatted 3TB Toshiba:

> [Unit]
> Description=Mount Toshiba 3TB (/mnt/T3)
> [Mount]
> What=/dev/disk/by-label/T3
> Where=/mnt/T3
> Type=ext4
> Options=nosuid,nodev,nofail,x-gvfs-show
> TimeoutSec=15seconds
> [Install]

thanks for the guide, strange that my drives do automount correctly, it has to be a Plex thing - will have to dig through the Arch wiki’s
