#3126 closed Bug (fixed)

Incomplete Dir. doesn't need to be auto created

Reported by: Sid33 Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: 1.93
Component: Transmission Version: 1.92
Severity: Minor Keywords:

Description

When a directory is set for incomplete downloads, this dir. is auto created every time Transmission is opened. It should only be created when there is a need for it. No need to created a folder if I am just seeding...

Which flavor of Transmission are you referring to? (Mac, GTK+, Qt, etc.)

comment:2 Changed 8 years ago by Sid33

sorry, GTK+, Linux Mint Helena(based on Ubuntu 9.10). 1.92 from the ppa.

The problem is when you add a torrent to download it. In the folder chooser, how do you select (or default to) a folder that doesn't exist yet?

comment:4 Changed 8 years ago by Sid33

I have a temp dir. I use to download files too, then they are auto moved to a new folder when they are completed. I remove the folder of temp files to keep my list of new files cleaner. I start Transmission to seed and it creates the folder even when I am not downloading anything.

What I'm saying is there's a small chicken-and-the-egg issue. When you open Edit > Preferences > Torrents, there's got to be something in the "Keep incomplete torrents in:" entry, and we have to feed that GTK+ widget a real directory...

Is there a way not to check the incomplete torrent dir, until it is needed? Right now I am running another client in wine and it does not have this issue. I really want to move over, but this is an (minor) issue for me.
