Hi all !
I have this problem too. Running Transmission 1.34 with Clutch on a MyBook 1TB WE.
Initally was able to download files no probs, but they were saving to /root. Stopped them and changed download directory to /shares/internal/public/torrent/watchdir. Downloads start and stop with 'Destination folder doesn't exist error.'
I have tried manually changing this to using /opt/bin/nano /root/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json
I am trying to delete the initial test torrents that were incompleted and saved to /root. However, I cannot see them in explorer, or when I use dir /root in putty. I am presuming they are hidden.
once again many thanks for any help :)
In my config file the first character of the path is also escaped, maybe this is causing a problem (because I assume you have actually created that folder):
Also on second thought, the folder isn't actually /shares/internal/PUBLIC is it? You do know that the Linux file system is case sensitive don't you?
The incomplete torrents should not be hidden, but if you want to see all files in a directory use:
ls -lah /path/to/dir
Thanks for you speedy reply alephsmith.
Yea, I created the folder :p - My settings file now reads… Case's are correct.
I managed to delete the intial files I downloaded using
then using the rmdir and rm functions in linux ^^
Killed transmission and restarted, but still giving me the same error.
No, I stopped transmission and edited the settings, then restarted it.
Still not working. Any thoughts?
thanks again aleph
please post the output of:
# ls -lah /shares/internal/PUBLIC/Torrent
Try using using transmission-remote with the -w switch to set the path instead. Use the tab key to autocomplete the path, this will ensure that you aren't making any typos:
transmission-remote -w /shares/internal/PUBLIC/Torrent/WATCHDIR
Here it is
[root@WDStorage ~]# ls -lah /shares/internal/PUBLIC/Torrent
drwsr-sr-x 5 www-data www-data 4.0K Oct 24 23:55 .
drwsrwsr-x 5 www-data www-data 4.0K Oct 24 18:42 ..
drwsr-sr-x 2 www-data www-data 4.0K Oct 24 18:42 COMPLETEDIR
drwsr-sr-x 2 www-data www-data 4.0K Oct 24 19:50 WATCHDIR
drwsr-sr-x 2 www-data www-data 4.0K Oct 24 23:55 WORKDIR
[root@WDStorage ~]# transmission-remote -w /shares/internal/PUBLIC/Torrent/WATCHDIR
-bash: transmission-remote: command not found
add this line to /root/.bashrc after the current PATH statement.
so you will have the path in the future.
/opt/bin/transmission-remote -w /shares/internal/PUBLIC/Torrent/WATCHDIR
I installed Transmission successfully and sees the GUI. My question is how do I download torrents with it? The only live folder I see on the gui is for upload for me to browse and upload files. I want to download torrents to the MBWE.
With windows, I would just browse the torrent sites, click on the torrent for it to download using bittorrent.
Please help including any directories I have to create and where, plus the type of permission to set and how.
You hvae to download the .torrent file to your Computer , and then upload it to your Cliucht/Tranmission Interface ;)
You seem to have a limited understanding of how bittorrent works, this isn't your fault, it's just that the applications you have used have done a good job of hiding it from you.
When you browse bittorrent sites and click the download link, a small file is downloaded to your computer. This file is usually named moviename.avi.torrent. Note the file extension .torrent. These .torrent files contain information that 'points' your bittorrent client to the torrent swarm so it can download the actual file you are interested in. When you click on a link on a bittorrent website, instead of clicking "Open the file…" click on "Save the file to your computer..". You should now have the .torrent file in your downloads folder.
Your computer has previously been set up to automatically open these .torrent files with your torrent client, this won't work with transmission on your MBWE because it on a different computer. You need to send the .torrent file to the MBWE using the Open button in the webinterface. In the "choose file.." dialogue pick the .torrent file you have previously downloaded. Once you upload the .torrent file, transmission will then start downloading the file to your MBWE.
Hopefully this makes sense. If not please feel free to ask for clarification.
