SickGear automates TV

SickGear has proven the most reliable stable TV descendant of the great SickBeard to fully automate TV enjoyment with innovation.

Typically used with usenet and/or other download clients e.g. NZBGet, SABNZBd, qBittorrent, Transmission, Deluge, rTorrent and others, SickGear can also interact with Kodi, Emby, and Plex to automate library updates and manage watched episodes. Popular services like Slack, Discord, Gitter, Email, and hardware devices can be notified of events.

Some of the sick innovative gear you get;

  • Select a UI style anytime; Regular, Proview I, or Proview II
  • Smart fanart system allows ultimate control to rate avoid/prefer
  • UI can be moved or toggled off/on at anytime to fully appreciate a fanart
  • Built-in source providers for max. efficiency with hit graphs and failure stats
  • Script for all downloaders to push on complete instead of polling entire lists
  • Server friendly with minimal number of API calls
  • Features that inspire imitators
  • Used on servers, to smaller SoC devices like RPi, BPi etc.

Enable snaps on Kubuntu and install SickGear

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

Snaps are discoverable and installable from the Snap Store, an app store with an audience of millions.

Enable snapd

If you’re running Kubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) or later, including Kubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) and Kubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish), you don’t need to do anything. Snap is already installed and ready to go.

Versions of Kubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf) don’t include snap by default, but snap can be installed from the command line as follows:

sudo apt update sudo apt install snapd
