Unfortunately I have no longer time to update the packages. Krzysztof Klimonda has taken over the work and will hopefully update the Repository (https://launchpad.net/~transmissionbt/+archive/ppa).

The 1.32 packages are now ready for downloading.

Tip: If you miss the tray icon in the gnome-panel, check if the transmission menu entry "View > 'Tray Icon'" is checked.

For Ubuntu users wanting to build Transmission from source code, the build dependencies are reportedly satisfied by this list of packages:

  • build-essentials
  • automake
  • autoconf
  • libtool
  • pkg-config
  • libssl-dev
  • libcurl4-openssl-dev
  • intltool
  • libxml2-dev
  • libgtk2.0-dev
  • libnotify-dev

The Ubuntu Team has included the new Transmission 1.32 for the upcoming "Intrepid Ibex" Release. I think that are very good news!

I have updated the packages for hardy. The new packages fixes the "missing application icon" bug.

After some delay because of a firewall failure at home, I uploaded the stable release for Transmission version 1.40 into the repository.

Changes in repository source addresses, beta, nightly releas

From now there are 3 repositories available. You can find the new addresses for the sources.list in the edited initial message of this thread.

  • One for the stable builds
  • One for the beta builds
  • One for daily nightly builds

The new structure is extremely flexible and have some advantages over the old one. Example:

  • You want only the latest stable builds released by the transmissionbt team > add the stable repository address to your /etc/apt/sources.lsit.
  • If you want also test the beta builds before the final release > add the stable repository and the beta repository addresses to your /etc/apt/sources.list.
  • You are a technical expert and want to test the newest transmission futures found in the svn > add the experimental nightly repository address to your /etc/apt/sources.list

Regards

Note: The old address will also work for the near future, but change it anyway if you find some time.

Fresh 1.50 beta 1 packages are now in the beta repository. I am extra happy that jhujhiti has written an IPv6 patch for libtransmission. So Transmission will gain official IPv6 support starting with this beta! - Thanks jhujhiti!

You can also try to download ubuntu from the IPv6 only torrent tracker: http://ipv6.torrent.ubuntu.com

Missing GPG keys for PPA's

Since last week the PPA repository are signed. The ubuntu team has introduced signing keys for all PPA repositories. Unfortunately they have not informed the users, nor have they written documentation on how to import these keys :-(

So it could be that you have received an error message like the following:

Code: Select all

W: GPG error: http://ppa.launchpad.net intrepid Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available:
NO_PUBKEY 7D2C7A23BF810CD5
W: You may want to run apt-get update to correct these problems


Since I have received several e-mails about the issue, I have updated the initial post with information on how to import the keys from keyserver.ubuntu.com.

Be the way, all ubuntu keys are stored on keyserver.ubuntu.com. If you search for a key related to ubuntu, this is the place to look.

Transmission 1.52 is available now.

The package transmission-daemon does now automatically install a startup script. This will be the new ubuntu default from the ubuntu jaunty release. The download directory is set by default to /var/lib/transmission-daemon/downloads. You can edit the daemon settings under /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json.

Attention: Transmission-daemon will require a username and password for authentification! By default the username and password is "transmission". Example for transmission-remote:

Code: Select all

transmission-remote --auth=transmission:transmission -l


If you had run some downloads before the update, then you have to adjust some things.

Stop transmission-daemon:

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop


Adjust your download directory in /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json

Move your resume folder which is normaly located in the users home directory to /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/resume:

Code: Select all

sudo cp -R ~/.config/transmission-daemon/resume /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/
sudo chown -Rv debian-transmission:debian-transmission /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/resume


So that should be all. Restart daemon with:

Code: Select all

sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start
...and your are done.
