Hey, It was reported on

In Ubuntu 9.04 new notification system was introduced. It doesn't support actions so only a notification is displayed when torrent is finished. Before you switch to Transmission window torrent is moved from "Downloading" to "Seeding" - if you happen to seed dozens or hundreds of torrents it's hard to find the one that was just downloaded. Author suggested that you could delay the moment that torrent is moved from "Downloading" category - just like pidgin does it when person goes offline. For some time (few seconds) a contact is displayed and marked as offline and then it disappears.

In short: no.

The polite answer is that Ubuntu already has a roadmap for handling this functionality, so adding a workaround in the Transmission code will be a wasted effort.

In addition, the OP needs to understand that the buttons still exist on platforms that support them. I think it's a very narrow viewpoint to suggest that Transmission change its behavior on BSD, Fedora, SuSE, Mandriva, Gentoo, etc. just because Ubuntu chose to remove this feature.

The downstream ticket is valid, because it affects "transmission (Ubuntu)". This ticket is invalid because this is wholly an Ubuntu issue, by Ubuntu's own choice and own doing.

Note: In addition, I'd like to say that the first time I heard that Ubuntu wanted Transmission to add a Firefox-like download manager was when I stumbled across it on this page. Nobody from Ubuntu has even spoken to me about it, much less filed an enhancement request or provided working code.
