Is there a command I can use to start Trasmission in the background?
I added Trasmission to the list of aplications started at startup. Every time after log in the the trasmission window pops up and this is bugging me.


Run as

transmission --minimized

This will launch it minimised to the notification area. For more information check out the man page

man transmission

For latest Ubuntu use

transmission-gtk --minimized

    Ubuntu 13.04 - this now appears to be transmission-gtk --minimized – Mendhak Aug 16 '13 at 6:09

install this Package: transmission-daemon (and the associated control interface transmission-remote)

$ sudo apt-get install transmission-daemon

So you can start it as a daemon (in the background) and use transmission via browser (transmission-remote)
