Trouble with Plex Home Theater and XBMC


I'm attempting to install plex home theater from the AUR (plex-home-theater) and am running into an issue with XBMC. Specifically, this is the error:

ERROR: Unable to find path to XBMC data files!

I found a solution that seemed to work for most and it consisted of exporting the XBMC_HOME variable to the /usr/share/xbmc directory, but that directory does not exist on my system. As far as I can tell it was supposed to be created by the application, but I have no idea why it's not there. I already tried removing and reinstalling it to no effect. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Trouble with Plex Home Theater and XBMC

You need to start it with, not plexhometheater binary.

The script does:

export XBMC_HOME=/usr/share/plexhometheater
exec plexhometheater
