Jackett installation

# box install jackett
Installing jackett
chown: cannot access 'Jackett': No such file or directory
sed: can't read /home/user/.config/Jackett/ServerConfig.json: No such file or directory
sed: can't read /home/user/.config/Jackett/ServerConfig.json: No such file or directory

Getting those errors when installing Jackett, I also can’t access the webpage.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Same problem here also installs via Dashboard but doesn’t enable.


#3

Issue fixed in the Github repo. Issues on how to fix, if it doesn’t automatically for you: https://github.com/QuickBox/QuickBox/issues/7


#4

The link is down, do you have an alternative link? Getting the same problem as OP when trying to install Jackett:

[[email protected]]:(5.1Mb)~$ sudo box install jackett
Installing jackett
chown: cannot access ‘Jackett’: No such file or directory
sed: can’t read /home/ttt/.config/Jackett/ServerConfig.json: No such file or directory
sed: can’t read /home/ttt/.config/Jackett/ServerConfig.json: No such file or directory

Installing via root or quickbox ui doesn’t work either.

Thanks. :slight_smile:


#5

Check if there is a a Jackett folder under ~/.config as well as in ~/.

If it’s missing Try mkdir ~/.config/Jackett


#6

That dir already existed, not sure what the problem is.


#7

Let’s try manually installing it, to see where it’s failing and why:
cd /home/$username wget -q https://github.com/Jackett/Jackett/releases/download/$jackettver/Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz tar -xvzf Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz > /dev/null 2>&1 rm -f Jackett.Binaries.Mono.tar.gz chown ${username}.${username} -R Jackett touch /install/.jackett.lock

Obviously, replace $username with your username. If these succeed, I’ll give you the next set of commands.


#8

Yes that worked fine with an alternate github link! :slight_smile:


#9

That’s unusual, since I literally copied from the latest QB jackett install script.

You can now either try the install script again, or continue the rest of the commands manually: https://github.com/QuickBox/QB/blob/master/packages/package/install/installpackage-jackett


#10

Quite odd indeed.

I tried running “sudo box install jackett” again and it said it was already installed, but it isn’t. So I did box remove jackett and then tried to re-do the installation and I still receive the original error.

I was trying to manually install it but have no idea what ${local_setup} or other references mean. :worried:

Is it possible my Quickbox needs updated?


#11

What version are you on @Pingu858?


#12

V2.4.8 and BASH 4.3


#13

Yup, you are a bit outdated as the new source is on v2.5 and located here:

If you need any help updating this to the new Repo, don’t hesitate to shoot me a PM.


#14

Aha that fixed the issue! Now Jackett is installed first try using box install, thank you guys! :slight_smile:

A little note on the box upgrade guide, I had to type “rm -rf /etc/QuickBox” instead of “rm -rf QuickBox” for it to work.

Thanks again. :slight_smile:


#15

Heya @Globber

Could you tell me if the .config directory exists at /home/globber/. If not, try to create the mkdir -p /home/globber/.config directory and assign it chmod 700 /home/globber/.config permissions and then try the install once more. Also, make sure it’s owned by your user chown -R globber:globber /home/globber/.config


#17

ahh yeah the dir is there but owned by Root - should have seen that…changed ownership and the install goes like a charm!

Thanks a lot…


#18

I added a commit that will make sure that /home/$username/.config/Jackett folder has the right permissions upon install. This should fix issues for any other users that have seen this issue.


#19

Testing this on Development now. Thanks @d2dyno!
