Cannot open a .torrent with Transmission from (web browser / command line / file manager)

Reported by: craptacular Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.42
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I Can reproduce "Transmission doesn't open torrents via web browser" again with 1.42.

If I start transmission then try to open a torrent i get the error message "Transmission is already running." I can reproduce it by clicking links off the web or even doing this:

  1. type following in commandline to start transmission gtk client: transmission&
  2. type transmission whatever.torrent to attempt to open the torrent file with existing instance of transmission

Are you installing from source? Are you compiling with dbus support? I had the same problem a while back, that fixed it for me.

sounds like you compiled without dbus support, or that dbus isn't working right on your system.
