I was impatient with a torrent download and then I opened Transmission's Preferences and went changing everything I could to as close as possible to infinite, closed and OK.
After seeing that the speed was still the same I went over the Preferences dialog again and set the values of “Queue” section under “Downloading” tab to “999999999999”, although it doesn't allow such values and reset to the maximum permitted. Obviously that changing that wouldn't increase the speed, although I was veeery impatient, and after changing “Downloads sharing data in the last N minutes are active”, which also didn't accepted the astronomic number and reset my entry to “28410”, Transmission froze, I tried to force it to close and open it again but it lags to start and when it do start, already starts frozen.
Now not even removing or purging or manually deleting it's files and then installing again
transmission-common will do the job.
I suspect that some configuration file is being kept after purging transmission, because when I install it again, all my torrents are still there (and I only use magnet links) and they show the correct progress bars. After starting Transmission it will work for 3 seconds and freeze after that, in these 3 seconds I managed to open Preferences dialog and I saw that the value of “Downloads sharing data in the last N minutes are active” is still “28410”.
If at least I knew where the file that stores these values is, I could manually reset them all. And when I start a Guest session and open Transmission it will work normally, reinforcing that the problem is in the value of “Downloads sharing data in the last N minutes are active” that I changed up to the maximum.
What should I do?
