Then I stopped the service, edited the /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json file to specify the following settings:
Code: Select all
"download-dir": "/home/theo/torrents/download", "incomplete-dir": "/home/theo/torrents/incomplete", "incomplete-dir-enabled": true,
However, when I add a torrent, it seems to download the first 4MB (i.e. the cache size) and then gives one of these errors:
orError: No data found! Ensure your drives are connected or use "Set Location". To re-download, remove the torrent and re-add it.
I see these errors when I query the individual torrents' info, using `transmission-remote -t 1 -i`.Error: Permission denied (/home/theo/torrents/download/ubuntu-19.10-live-server-amd64.iso)
I even tried changing ownership of the download and incomplete folders to debian-transmission (using `sudo chown debian-transmission download` and similar for incomplete). And stopped + restarted the service again, and even rebooted the entire system, and added the torrents anew. But to avail.
Nothing appears in either folder.
It seems to be a permission issue, but I have no clue what's causing it.
I remember struggling with this a long time ago, on a previous system, but can't remember how I worked around this. As for the "No data found! Ensure your drives are connected" error, obviously the folders are there. I can access them just fine myself. Also there's plenty of space available (over 600 GB).
What am I doing wrong?
