Help with installing SABnzbd on Linux Mint

Post by Robert9 » June 21st, 2018, 9:21 am

As a newbie to Linux Mint, I tried to install SABnzbd 2.3.4. I read somewhere it installed automatically on Firefox 60.0.2 (64-bit). Indeed, when I start Firefox I get a message it is started but it doesn't do anything. I start the program manually. I supposed that as in W10 the program will automatically download an indicated nzb and unpack it. But here it doesn't, it does not do anything at all except showing the file. I do something wrong, probably, but what?
Thanks in advance for any suggestion.
Robert

Open a terminal, and type this:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sabnzbdplus
sabnzbdplus -b1

Dat leverde helaas weinig op... Bij de 2e regel kreeg ik: is reeds de nieuwste versie. Bij de 3e regel gebeurde niets. Ik kan in het SAB-programma eigenlijk niet zien hoe ik de bewerking van een nzb in werking kan stellen?

Oh, I'm sorry. I should have written:
It did not help me very much... At the second line it says: is already the newest version. At the third line nothing happened. When I look at the SAB-program I can't actually see what I must do to unpack the nzb-file?

OK, already installed, good.

I cannot think of a situation in which that is possible...

Anyway:
On your Linux, start Firefox, and fill out http://127.0.0.1:8080/ ... what do you get?

What is the output of

Code: Select all

netstat -lntep

We'll come to that later.
