Hi everybody ! First of all, i apologize if my english is approximate, it’s not my first language .
i tried the following command to change plex rigths :

username=USERNAMEHERE!!!
usermod -a -G ${username} plex
chown ${username}:plex /home/${username}
chmod 755 /home/${username}
setfacl -m g:${username}:rwx /home/${username}

but it doesn’t work, i have this message “usage: usermod [otpion] LOGIN”
