I use transmission to download torrents to
/media/serier/ (so not my home folder). I did this before and it worked, but after formating my drive to ext4 I get a permissions error. This is what I get from
ls -la in
drwx------ 2 user user 4096 2011-03-30 19:32 folder.name
And I believe that transmission is run by me (
ps -ef | grep trans user 26076 1 0 00:23 ? 00:00:56 transmission-gtk
How do I fix this? Change the permission for the folder?
UPDATE: ok, I have changed permission to several folders now, but it still does not work. Here it is:
/media: drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 4096 2011-07-21 22:26 media /media/serier/ drwxr-xr-x 5 user user 4096 2011-07-22 14:02 serier /media/serier/serier/*720 drwxr-xr-x 103 user user 12288 2011-07-20 22:25 serier
(attempting to download a episode of Alphas)
/media/serier/serier/Alphas season 1/ drwxr-xr-x 3 user user 4096 2011-07-14 20:27 Alphas season 1
I still get this error message:
Error: Permission denied (/media/serier/serier/Alphas season 1/Alphas.S1E02.720...)
Every folder is owned by me (user) except for media owned by root and every folder is set to
drwxr-xr-x. Why do I still get an error message?!
Changed the download location to:
drwxr-xr-x 3 user user 16384 2011-07-22 18:21 Downloads
and it works, but I don't want to download it to my home folder and move the file every time I download something..
Thanks for the fast response by the way..
