Double-click .torrent to add to remote Transmission client
This was written for Linux Mint 20.1 running Cinnamon.
My Transmission torrents client runs as a docker on my unRAID server in my basement. Rather than loading up the web interface and manually uploading a downloaded torrent it is handy to do be able to double-click and have the file added automatically.
First we need to install the local Transmission CLI tools.
sudo apt-get install transmission-cli
Then add this
add_torrent.sh script to
Super simple but you will need to specify your Transmission server. This will add the file to the remote client and then show a notification if the command was successful.
To associate this command with a
.torrent file, find your file in the file browser, right-click and select
Open-with => Other application. Then type
/usr/local/bin/add_torrent.sh into the bottom text field and click
Add to list.
