    NOTE: Starting with v8.1, plexguide will autoconfigure the paths, categories, and some essential settings by default.

    Downloads Folder

    We provide most download locations by default, however you will see log errors about missing folders. It's recommended you customize the "Download Folder" under the processing configuration. This is a comma-separated list of download folders.

    You will need to customize this for your environment. For example if you use SABnzbd and RuTorrent, change the value to /mnt/downloads/SABnzbd/ebooks,/mnt/downloads/RuTorrent/ebooks

    LazyLibrarian uses only 1 category for the downloaders to download both ebooks and abooks, however it will import them into /mnt/unionfs/ebooks and /mnt/unionfs/abooks respectively.

    LazyLibrarian will not search download subfolders, so you can't just specify /mnt/downloads. You will need to specify the specific directory where your downloader puts ebook/abook files. I

    If you use RuTorrent but you aren't using categories to sort downloads, you want to use /mnt/downloads/RuTorrent not /mnt/downloads/RuTorrent/ebooks

    Default Paths (configured automatically)

    Incase you are upgrading or change the paths and it's causing problems, here are the default paths to assist you!
    Download Folder/mnt/downloads/SABnzbd/ebooks,/mnt/downloads/NZBGet/ebooks,/mnt/downloads/qbittorrent/ebooks,/mnt/downloads/rutorrent/ebooks
    ebooks Library Folder/mnt/unionfs/ebooks
    abook Library Folder/mnt/unionfs/abooks

    Auto Import to Calibre

    If you are using Calibre to host your ebook database you'll need to follow the next steps to get Lazylibrarian to automatically import ebooks to Calibre's database:

    1. Edit .yml or container. In ENVIRONMENT (ENV) add DOCKER_MODS=linuxserver/Calibre-Web:Calibre|linuxserver/mods:lazylibrarian-ffmpeg
    2. Lazylibrarian > Config > Processing > Calibre > Calibredb import program: type /usr/bin/calibredb. Test!

    3. If not working go back to the .yml or Portainer and add the following volume: /mnt/unionfs/ebooks /downloads
    4. Lazylibrarian > Config > Processing > Ebook Library Folder > type: /mnt/unionfs/ebooks (This should already be set).
