I had a few single FLAC files with cue files I wanted to put into Plex but to my dismay it doesn’t read the CUE files at all. Thus I needed to split the one FLAC file into multiple pieces with shnsplit. Thanks to Stack Exchange for the help.

sudo apt install cuetools shntool flac
With the necessary tools installed you simply have to run the shnsplit command:
shnsplit -f FILENAME.cue -t "%a - %n %t - %p" FILENAME.flac
the -t parameters formats the filename as desired per the manpage
Name output files in user‐specified format based on CUE sheet fields. The following formatting strings are recognized:
