I have a machine running Ubuntu 12.04 server with transmission-daemon running to handle bitorrents. Everything works fine except the transmission-daemon creates files as the user/group,
debian-transmission, and with 744 file permissions.
I would like to be able to delete and move these file from a samba share.
I considered changing the primary group of the user debian-transmission, but I was worried that might mess up access to other files.
I thought it would be better to change the default permission of new files created by debian-transmission to 774, and add myself to the group debian-transmission.
I know that this can be done with a umask, but my understanding is that this would be set in the .profile file and since debian-transmission has no home folder I wan't sure if that file existed for the user. So how to I accomplish this?
Suggestions or alternate solutions are welcome. Thanks in advance.
