    Completely Uninstall Plex Media Server

    I sampled many of these programs, and now I want plex gone. Using synaptic, I uninstalled the plex media package, but anytime I resume from standby, I can see in the black/white command window (the one that shows when a pc is booting) that "plex-media-server" is starting or stopping. I want it gone; how would one go about doing this?

    Thanks!

    If you still don't know how to do it, there is a solution here (I think)

    Steps:
    1)Run
    sudo apt-get purge plexmediaserver


    2) Remove bulk of plex files
    sudo rm -rf /var/lib/plexmediaserver


    3) Remove plex user (very important!)
    sudo userdel plex


    4) Remove both /etc/init/plexmediaserver.conf and /etc/default/plexmediaserver
    sudo rm /etc/init/plexmediaserver.conf
    sudo rm /etc/default/plexmediaserver
