Transmission is a light-weighted and cross-platform BitTorrent client. It's the default BitTorrent client in many Linux distributions.

Installation

There are several options in Official Repositories:

transmission-cli
includes CLI tools, daemon and web client.
transmission-gtk
GTK+ GUI.
transmission-qt
Qt GUI.

Configuration

For transmission-gtk and transmission-qt, the default path of configuration files is ~/.config/transmission.

For transmission-cli, default configuration path is ~/.config/transmission-daemon.

Run as a daemon

To run transmission as a daemon, you need have transmission-cli installed.

Edit /etc/conf.d/transmissiond and modify the user used to download:

 TRANS_USER="<your user name>"

Then start the daemon:

# rc.d start transmissiond

Navigate to http://127.0.0.1:9091 in web browser and you can see the Web client.

You can also edit the main configuration file ~/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json to fit your preference.

Note:
  • If you cannot find the ~/.config/transmission-daemon folder, run transmission-daemon once to create it.
  • You need to stop the daemon before editing configuration files, or your edits will not be saved.
