transmission-gtk 2.84 resets umask settings.json on exit

Post by DimitriT » Sun Mar 04, 2018 1:07 pm

I am trying to configure the umask setting. I am using Ubuntu xenial.

I edit the ~/$HOME/.config/transmission/settings.json and set the umask to 2 (to allow group writers).

I run transmission-gtk. It doesn't use the new setting.

I exit transmission-gtk and look at settings.json.

The setting for umask has returned to the original value of 18.
