"Watch Folder" works partially with dropbox folder.

Post by janesconference » Mon Jan 31, 2011 11:31 am

Hi to all, I'm using Dropbox to sync torrents to download.
That is, I have a dropbox folder called "torrents" in my linux Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid) PC.
I set "Automatically add torrents from:" that directory in Transmission Preferences, but when I add a file (save a .torrent in that directory), Transmission doesn't download it.
Anyway, if I quit & restart Transmission, it realizes there's a new .torrent in the watched directory, and proceeds to automatically download it.
Seems an inotify problem to me. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Transmission version is 1.93 (10621).

Thanks,
Cristiano.
