My system runs on Ubuntu 12.04 and I use the transmission bit-torrent client which was installed on it. It works just fine but I would like it to open as soon as I get on the system instead of having to open it. It's not a big problem but if I forget, the torrents won't begin downloading. Thank in advance if anyone can help.
You have a little program called "startup applications". If you open that (open dash and search for startup and you will see it). Add Transmission to that and you will be set.
When you first open the program, click add, and browse for the app: it is in /usr/bin, in other words the root filesystem then usr, then bin. Hit the first item with a single click and hitT to jump down to the T's. A file named "transmission" will be there, that is what you want to add.
- Open Dash (hit Win/Super key by default). Enter Startup Applications then hit Enter
- Click Add, enter name Transmission, enter command
transmission-gtk -m, click Add.
You've done it.
