Using zenity in torrent completion script

Post by space_flunky » Wed May 25, 2011 1:34 am

I've written a script which I'd like to run using Transmission's "Call script when torrent is completed" option. The script requires user input. I've tried forcing the script to run in a terminal window, and I've also tried using zenity to handle the user input. Neither have been successful. Transmission is calling the script, but seems to be limiting what it can execute. Is there any way around this? Thanks.

I don't know the answer to your question about zenity, but wrt Transmission limiting the script: FWIW, Transmission is just making a straighforward call to execvp(). Anything that can work from an exec call should work as a transmission script.
