Hello everyone,

I have another rclone drive (encrypted) where I usually safe my private pictures.
Now I want to also access them with Plex. I already could integrate them in rclone on my machine (rclone ls myPics: shows the content of my folder).

How can I now mount this drive to my file system?
I mean I add manually pictures from my laptop. So eventually Plex just needs reading access to the mounted folder on something like /mnt/myPictures

Thank you and best regards

you need to edit
Code:
cd /opt/appdata/plexguide/pgunion.sh
Code:
sudo nano pgunion.sh
Code:
sudo systemctl daemon-reload
Code:
sudo mkdir -p /mnt/  {{{{{{<< same folder name from add to pgunion.sh >>}{{{{
Code:
sudo chown -hR 1000:1000 /mnt/{{{{{{<< same folder name from add to pgunion.sh >>}{{{{
Code:
sudo service pgunion stop
sudo docker stop $(docker ps -a -q)
Code:
sudo service pgunion start
sudo docker start portainer
sudo docker start traefik
sudo docker start oauth
sudo docker start $(docker ps -a -q)
That's all

Hey @doob thank you so much for your help!

Acutally I already fail at the first step đŸ˜…
The pgunion.sh doesn't exist:
Code:

Maybe my version is too old? I'm using Plexguide 7.7.7

That’s relatively ancient and unsupported at this stage, it also would have been worth mentioning in your opening post.

Sorry, yes I guess I should have mentioned that. Is there no way?
I managed to make rclone work and mount the folder to /mnt/plexpictures but in the plex docker container the folder seems to be empty. A ls in portainer always brings back an empty result
