I installed Xubuntu and transmission daemon, set the download path to my home/user/TV shows, and get a permission denied when trying to download torrents through the transmission.
chmod -r 777 on this folder without success.

ps -ef | grep transmission

ps aux | grep transmissioninstead.
debian-transmission, not sure why it shows a stupid number. You can verify that with
