MobileMe syncs Transmission's preferences

Reported by: shaane Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: Transmission Version: 1.92+
Severity: Normal Keywords: mobileme preferences


I have MobileMe? set to sync preferences. I have Transmission on two different computers (under two different usernames). MobileMe? syncs the preferences between the two. Unfortunately, this causes the Download directory path to be synced between two different usernames, so I get a permissions error because Transmission uses the download directory of the computer I previously used:

My username: --thiscomputer--
Error: Permissions denied (/Users/--othercomputer--/Downloads/whatever)

Is it possible for the downloads directory preferences to use ~/ rather than /Users/xxx/?

No, using ~ will cause other side-effects, unfortunately.

You should probably try making a symlink so that your synced download directory can be found under both pathnames.
