On a fresh installation of Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 I installed Transmission using this procedure:
sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon sudo service transmission-daemon stop sudo nano /var/lib/transmission-daemon/info/settings.json
In the settings I changed download and incomplete folder destinations and
umask set to "2", and add my username to
sudo usermod -a -G debian-transmission username sudo service transmission-daemon start
First download give me
permission denied after few seconds.
So I tried to change the ownership and permissions on folders:
sudo chown username:debian-transmission /media/public/downloads sudo chmod 770 /media/public/downloads
(The same have been done for for incompelete folder) but the problem is the same.
I attach output of
ps -ef | grep transmission.
debian-+ 984 1 0 08:02 ? 00:01:30 /usr/bin/transmission-daemon -f --log-error username 4365 4350 0 17:20 pts/17 00:00:00 grep --color=auto transmission
ps aux | grep transmission.
debian-+ 984 0.2 0.2 345376 17516 ? Ssl 08:02 1:30 /usr/bin/transmission-daemon -f --log-error username 4369 0.0 0.0 21312 976 pts/17 S+ 17:21 0:00 grep --color=auto transmission
ls -l /media/public/downloads is:
drwxrwx---+ 2 username debian-transmission
The last information that could be useful to understand my situation is the incomplete and download folders are on mdadm device but I don't know how give you more details about it
