    5 This article was written with Ubuntu and Debian in mind, but should be correct on any linux system with the {{{init.d}}} start/stop system and the {{{adduser}}} command. However your system doesn't have these, then the general steps are still valid.

    75If you there is no specific guide for your platform, and you can give a clear description on how-to and provide a sample start/stop script, [/newticket open a ticket] (set Component to Wiki).
     
    2422  Shut down the application after a few seconds by pressing {{{CRTL-C}}}.
    2523 1. Configure it using your favorite text editor (see below)
    26  1. Copy [wiki:Scripts/initd this init.d]-script to {{{/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon}}}
    27  1. Check that {{{/home/transmission}}} is owned by the user transmission
     24 1. Copy the appropriate [wiki:Scripts/initd#StartStop init script] for your platform to their appropriate location
     25 1. Check that the new user's home folder is owned by the user transmission

    2927== Configuration ==
    3028There are two configuration files you can edit:
    31  * [wiki:Scripts/initd init.d]-script ( {{{/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon}}} )
    32  * Transmission [EditConfigFiles settings.json] file ( {{{/home/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json}}} )
     29 * The [wiki:Scripts/initd#StartStop init script] (read the respective wiki page for more information)
     30 * Transmission [EditConfigFiles settings.json] file (eg. {{{/home/transmission/.config/transmission-daemon/settings.json}}} )
    3331
    34 ==== [wiki:Scripts/initd init.d]-Script ====
     32==== [wiki:Scripts/initd#StartStop init script] ====
    3533Normally, there is no need to modify this file. However if you don't want to run transmission-daemon as user 'transmission', you'll need to change {{{USERNAME}}} to whatever user you want Transmission to run in.

    4442== Using Transmission ==
    45 You can use transmission in two ways now:
    46  * Start and stop it manually by calling the init-script yourself.
    47 {{{
    48 $ /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start
    49 }}}
    50  * To stop transmission, just call the init-script with the "stop" parameter:
    51 {{{
    52 $ /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop
    53 }}}
     43You can use transmission in two ways now:
     44 * Use your system's init cli to start or stop Transmission
     45 * Let your system start Transmission on boot
