total 32
drwxrwxrwx  3 pi pi                   4096 Oct 30 18:52 Downloading
drwsrwxrwx 72 pi debian-transmission 12288 Oct 30 18:52 Downloads
drwsrwxrwx  3 pi pi                  16384 Apr 24  2016 lost+found
As It don't work I gived to debian-transmission root permission :D

But It don't work too.

(This solution ever work with another debian version with the same meterial)

can you run the transmission-daemon using the Pi user. 0 i did not run my transmision using systemctl because of that same problem. copy the settings fron /etc/transmission-daemon to home folder .config
example:

Code: Select all

sudo su pi -c "transmission-daemon -f --log-debug -g /home/pi/.config/transmission &
