Transmission v3 not working on synology dsm 7

Post by Locke108 »

I just upgraded to dsm 7 beta on synology ds218.

Transmission not working.

I can’t use docker on ds218 so Had installed transmission via synocommunity.

Any fix for transmission on dsm 7?

I have the same situation, mine is Synology ds1621+, it shows that transmissiom needs root permission to run, but Synology does not support root permission, please contact the developer to change the software permission.

On plex forum there was this fix for dsm 7. I wonder if something similar can be done with transmission

Code: Select all


Here’s the workaround for your existing plex package to run on DSM 7 (preview)

Open Control panel
Open Task Scheduler
Create a new triggered task
General ->

Task: Start Plex
User: Root
Event Boot-Up
Task Settings ->
user-defined script:

sudo /var/packages/Plex\ Media\ Server/scripts/start-stop-status start
Select the task and click Run

You can also create a task to stop the plex server.

sudo /var/packages/Plex\ Media\ Server/scripts/start-stop-status stop
