I’ve recently (ish) started using transmission as my torrent client; the change-over comes from my switching-things-off approach; instead of keeping ktorrent running on the laptop (and caneing my bandwidth), I can have something mainly work on the NAS which is always on (bar power-cuts/maint).
So, erm, I’ve written something that works for me. And hacked out the mailer-script to something a little cleaner— at least in my view.
The premise is that you’re using a POSIXish operating system — my NAS runs on Debian — and that all of your exports are within the /nas directory, and your torrents directory is /nas/torrents.
The changes needed are (with transmission not running, apparently) to include
