transmission-gtk — a bittorrent client

Synopsis

transmission-gtk -?

transmission-gtk [-pqm] [torrent-file ...]

Description

transmission-gtk is a fast and easy BitTorrent client.

BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file transfer protocol which uses a metainfo file (usually with the .torrent file extension) and a central tracker to distribute file data amongst a group of peers. For more information on the BitTorrent protocol see http://www.bittorrent.org/

Options

-? --help

-p --paused

-m --minimized

-g, --config-dir directory
Where to look for configuration files. This can be used to swap between using the cli, daemon, gtk, and qt clients. See http://trac.transmissionbt.com/wiki/ConfigFiles for more information.

Multiple .torrent files may be added at startup by appending them on the command line. If transmission-gtk is already running, the torrents will be added to the running instance.

Environment

http_proxy
libcurl uses this environment variable when performing tracker announces. If set, this overrides the GNOME proxy preferences.

Files
