I spent the last 5 hours trying to get transmission running on my rPi 3 with osmc, but have failed miserably.
First I just went to the app store and installed transmission, but I couldn’t find it anywhere afterwards, I even tried rebooting a few times just to be sure, but still nothing.
After that I decided to use putty and install it manually. But now the strangest thing has happened.
sudo apt-get install transmission-cli transmission-common transmission-daemon
to install everything (got that from a tutorial, another one before that just had transmission-daemon, but since this one installs more I figured I should show this one).
Then I went on to stop transmission before configuring, using the command
sudo /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop.
This gives me the following error:
“sudo: /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon: command not found”
When using cd to browse into the folders it turns out there is no folder called transmission-daemon inside init.d…
I’d just like to be able to use transmission, sending all the downloads to the (always mounted) external hard drive, nothing fancy.
Does anyone have any tips on how to get this to work?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: I just tried running the same install command again, and am getting another error.
I can’t get putty to copy text, so I’ll just try to upload the picture.
