#5280 closed Enhancement (fixed)

Show options dialog in more cases

Reported by: lucke Owned by: jordan
Priority: Normal Milestone: 2.80
Component: Qt Client Version: 2.76
Severity: Normal Keywords:


I am running transmission-daemon on a headless server, controlled usually with qtr from my desktop. Usually I add torrents through "Add to Transmission" Firefox extension. When I want to choose what files I want to download, I have to quickly pause the freshly added torrent in qtr, choose files, unpause. If adding torrents through "Open URL" was showing the options dialog, then I could use that.

The way it seems to be now:

qtr local with "show options dialog" and "automatically add torrents from:" enabled: 1) shows the options dialog on "Open" and choosing the torrent file 2) doesn't show the options dialog on "Open URL", whether it's a torrent file or magnet link 3) shows the options dialog when the torrent file is put in the location set in "automatically add torrents from" 4) shows the options dialog when ran as "qtr file.torrent" 5) shows the "Open URL" dialog with a filled URL when ran as "qtr url"

qtr remote with "show options dialog" and "automatically add torrents from:" enabled behaves the same in 1), 2), 4) and 5). The options dialog pops up sometimes in connection with a dir watcher, but not quite when it's supposed to - I will open a new ticket about that after more testing.

  • Milestone changed from None Set to 2.80
  • Status changed from new to assigned

r14002 now shows the Torrent Options dialog for adding by URL & Magnet Link.

Actually it goes even further by merging the "Add URL" and Torrent Options dialog together...

Thank you, jordan. That's an improvement. Clicking on it usually makes my qtr segfault, though: qtr[28751]: segfault at 47474b ip 4d93f5e4 sp bff7856c error 4 in[4d3d0000+ab9000]

One thing that might be even nicer, were it feasible, would be to do download from the URL and show the filelist, thus bringing it fully in line with "Open file" and the dialog shown for automatically added torrents. (I'd have expected to see the filelist upon entering the URL and pressing Open in the previous incarnation of "Open URL"; now I've tested how it works in utorrent and it indeed does just that.)

The way this dialog is now - without the filelist - the "Verify Local Data" button is useless, isn't it? And pressing it crashes my qtr.

Hm, I didn't test it in local mode. :/

Fixed in r14010.
