Ubuntu Servers :: Batch Job To Start/stop Transmission-daemon?

Mar 11, 2010

I would like to be able to simply run a shortcut file or batch file in a windows os to start or stop my transmission-daemon.I was thinking about using putty to auto login and execute a file using the -m switch. A problem I am running into is that /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stoprequires the use of sudo.That would require entering a password which would be automated and insecure or would require manually typing int he password.

Ubuntu Servers :: How To Use Start-stop-daemon To Execute Process

Sep 27, 2010

I've just installed subversion.I need to create a script /etc/init.d/svnserve that will start at boot time.I want to use start-stop-daemon --start so I can track my process and eventually kill it using start-stop-daemon --stop.My problem is that I can't get it to work and the documentation shows no exemple.

I've replaced $DAEMON by the whole line: svnserve -d -R -r $REPO_ROOT and got -d is not an option.I'm not quite sure what to do at that point. If someone has some experience with start-stop-daemon it would be great.

Ubuntu Servers :: Start Dropbox Daemon At Boot On 10.04?

Dec 19, 2010

I am having some trouble making the dropbox daemon start at boot. I followed these instructions -> [URL], which are basically a replica of the original instructions from the Dropbox Wiki [URL]. The installation went fine, except that the machine still cannot start the daemon at boot. I tried to modify the init.d script a bit (see the attachment), but it still wont work (I am not sure if my changes made any significant difference, though). The daemon will only start if I invoke it manually after login with the command:


[user@machine:~]$ service dropbox start

Which executes the daemon just fine. I also tried adding this line of code to crontab:


@reboot /etc/init.d/dropbox start

This command starts the daemon if I check with the command "service dropbox status", but if I execute the official dropbox CLI command:


~/bin/dropbox.py status

it says that Dropbox isn't running and I still have to execute it manually.

P.s.: The machine runs Ubuntu Server 10.04, with all the latest system patches and updates.

Ubuntu :: Remove Transmission Daemon From Startup

Apr 1, 2011

I've tried the following in rc.local but it gets me nowhere:

for((a=0;a<=5;a++)); do
sleep 1 &
[[ $(top -n1 | grep transmission) == *transmission* ]] &&
[[ $(date +%H) -ge 5 ]] && [[ $(date +%H) -lt 23 ]] && /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop done

[[ $(top -n1 | grep transmission) == *transmission* ]] &&
[[ $(date +%H) -ge 5 ]] && [[ $(date +%H) -lt 23 ]] && /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon stop

Nothing I do can keep this thing from launching, and apparently kill it either.

General :: Set A Password For Transmission-daemon, The BitTorrent Client Server?

Feb 26, 2010

The config file is ambiguous, and keeps getting overwritten when you restart the daemon in Debian, anyway.

In /etc/transmission-daemon/settings.json, there are these options:


Every time I restart the daemon with:

/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon restart

It overwrites rpc-password, and the password it prints doesn't work anyway.

Does anyone know how to set the password properly? I don't want to disable it.

Ubuntu Servers :: Stop Openssh From - Ever - Running At Start Up?

Jun 12, 2011

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS and I have installed openssh.I need to find a way to configure it so that it never start up when I boot into my computer. The reason is: I haven't had the time yet to learn how to set it up and configure it correctly. Until that time comes I don't want it to run at all.Every single time I boot into the system and I have to do that first before I can even do what I really need to on the computer. It's annoying.Does anyone know the best and least complicated way to just make it not run at all until I'm ready to set it up properly?Also how to check what is running on my system after I boot up so I can double check, after making the changes, that it worked right.

Ubuntu :: How To Auto Start / Add Transmission Torrents

Apr 3, 2011

I usually add torrents to transmission through my iPhone. I have Transmission watch the 'Attachments' folder in my Dropbox. I also have Transmission auto add the torrent and delete the torrent file when done. Thing is if I don't have Transmission running when I add the torrent to my dropbox folder. Transmission doesn't start up to download the torrent. Is there a script that can watch for torrent files in my Dropbox folder that I can run in Scheduled Tasks to run every 5 min or so. Also when I have it up and running and I do have auto add on. It auto adds it to transmission but then the popup dialog appears to ask if I just want to download one of the files from the torrent or all 10. Is there a way to bypass this?

Ubuntu :: Start Daemon On Login?

Aug 11, 2011

I'm creating a script that I want to run every time any user logs in (not only on the GUI, but also via SSH or via text terminal). The script will check if a daemon program is running (one per user or per session, haven't decided yet) and, if it isn't, will start it. I want this to be system-wide, not per-user. I thought about using /etc/profile (or creating a file in /etc/profile.d/) for CLI logins and /etc/X11/Xsession (same remark, Xsession.d) for GUI logins. My problem is that if the user uses a non-Bourne shell (e.g. TCSH) this won't work. Is there any initialization script that is run no matter what shell the user has?
