transmission-gtk: Creates incomplete-dir even if incomplete-dir-enabled is set to false

Reported by: anoteng Owned by: jordan
Priority: Low Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 2.03
Severity: Minor Keywords:


Forwarded from the Debian BTS: I realize the version in debian unstable is quite outdated, but I see no evidence in the changelogs that this issue has been resolved.

The incomplete-dir set in ~/.config/transmission/settings.json (~/Downloads by default) will be created even if incomplete-dir-enabled is set to false.

Is this a Transmission or a Debian issue? Is it still a problem using 2.42? What exactly are your settings for Download locations, both partial and complete, in settings.json?

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low

This behavior still exists in trunk and is a transmission-gtk issue rather than a Debian one.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

It's easy enough to have transmission check to see if incomplete-dir-enabled is set before creating the directory, but it only pushes the error from one bug to another: unless the incomplete directory exists, the preferences dialog's GtkFileChooserButton? won't show the correct setting.

I don't see a clean fix for this, and it seems like a minor issue, so maybe it's better off leaving this as a wontfix.
