[HowTo] Install Radarr v3

I am using vim but you can use nano as it’s installed by default. So where you see vim in a command just transpose it with nano if you prefer

Download this file onto your system: (Note: The link below will target the Linux .NET Core arm64 file. Replace if needed with the file from Radarr)

wget --content-disposition ‘https://radarr.servarr.com/v1/update/master/updatefile?os=linux&runtime=netcore&arch=arm64

Uncompress to /opt

tar -xvzf Radarr*.linux-core-arm.tar.gz --directory /opt/

Next, grant the required permission to your install directory recursively:

sudo chown -R osmc:osmc /opt/Radarr

Now here is what tripped me up when trying to start up the service. It may change in future releases as I think it’s a bug, but I had to make the Radarr file in /opt/Radar/ executable

chmod +x /opt/Radarr/Radarr

Now create the systemd service to start it at boot

sudo vim /etc/systemd/system/radarr.service

[Unit]
Description=Radarr Daemon
After=syslog.target network.target

[Service]
User=osmc
Group=osmc
Type=simple
ExecStart=/opt/Radarr/Radarr -nobrowser -data=/home/radarr/.config/Radarr/
TimeoutStopSec=20
KillMode=process
Restart=on-failure

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target

Save & Exit

:wq

Now enable the service

sudo systemctl enable radarr

Start the service

sudo systemctl start radarr

Lastly, check it’s running

sudo systemctl status radarr

Now open up a browser from your computer (on the same network) and enter

<IP_ADDRESS>:7878

Where <IP_ADDRESS> is the IP of your OSMC box

Thanks! Could you make the instructions with preformatted text

like this so it can be copied and pasted better without added makeup

Thanks :slight_smile:

P.S. I tried this on a fresh OSMC install on the Vero 4k+ and it doesn’t work…
