Transmission is a light-weighted and cross-platform BitTorrent client. It is the default BitTorrent client in many Linux distributions.
There are several options in Official Repositories:
- includes CLI tools, daemon and web client.
- GTK+ GUI.
- Qt GUI.
Run as a daemon
To run transmission as a daemon, you need have installed.
/etc/conf.d/transmissiond and modify the user used to download:
TRANS_USER="<your user name>"
Then start the daemon:
# rc.d start transmissiond
http://127.0.0.1:9091 in web browser and you can see the Web client.
You would probably like to have complete file path displayed in the file list of each torrent. Open
name = name.substring(name.lastIndexOf('/')+1);
You can also edit the main configuration file
~/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json to fit your preference.
- If you cannot find the
transmission-daemononce to create it.
- You need to stop the daemon before editing configuration files, or your edits will not be saved.
