I've bought a Raspberry Pi and I have managed to install xbian, samba and bittorrent (transmission).

All the fun showed up when I tried to upgrade the older version from the repo to the latest version - Transmission 2.77 - by following the steps as mentioned on Ubuntu Help Community Wiki.

My question is - where is the settings.json file stored?

I can download via command line with success - but I can't configure the settings file to allow the remote web interface... (I can only find the settings file which the previous version used).

The file is store here:

sudo nano /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json

Make sure you stop it first before editing

/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop
