Can anyone here help me locate for download the correct version of Transmission for the iMac 4,1 2006? TYwo days of Google searches have not produced a site that is still active. I have replaced this for a newer model and want to pass it on to my granddaughter. Thanks.
Based on the OS version, you may find the proper DMG link in https://transmissionbt.com/appcast.xml (pay attention to sparkle:minimumSystemVersion tags). If there's no suitable version listed there, you could try some other (earlier) ones from https://github.com/transmission/transmission-releases.

Thanks again. The result I got was incomprehensible, nothing like what you have given me now. Using the github link I had chosen a much earlier version of transmission, now changed to v2.84 with OS X 10.6,8, successfully installed but evidently not correctly set-up since when attempting to download I get an error message saying torrents cannot be downloaded to an empty folder, the folder must contain a file". What kind of file? What am I doing wrong? I have set-up and used Transmission on two other iMacs and have never encountered this problem. If you can help me sort this out I would be very grateful. Apologies if I am asking too much of your generousity and goodwill.
