Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

Just tried this and it seems to be working so far....

sudo chown -R deluge:myuser ~/Downloads/Torrents/

Now deluged appears to be writing to the folder and I am also able to access the folder with my regular user.

Hopefully now I finally fixed this.

Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

Damn :( I thought my issues were solved, but apparently they aren't. Please be patient with me... I am by no means an expert in setting permissions/groups/ownerships, and this has been causing me trouble for last few days... I've tried several permutations of folder/file permissions and I can either...

Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

Thanks Cas... that got my torrent list back without making the daemon stop. Only problem now is, I get an error on any incomplete torrents, but completed torrents seed without error. My downloaded files are not stored in /var/lib/deluge/ but ~/Downloads/Torrents/ so I think the user "deluge&quo...

Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

Someone was helping me in the #ubuntu IRC help channel. They suggested: sudo cp -pvR ~/.config/deluge/* /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge/ sudo chown deluge /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge -R sudo chmod 644 /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge/ -R sudo chmod 755 /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge After doing this...

Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

OK, I'm not a whiz at using the command line, so.... is it "sudo cp ~/.config/deluge /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge" then "sudo -u deluge chmod -R u+rwx /var/lib/deluge/.config" ?
Please correct me if I've messed up the command.

Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

I've figured out that there is a directory /var/lib/deluge/.config but I can't access it with my user despite having typed "sudo adduser myuser deluge" as per the instructions in the guide. I assume I've got to copy the contents of ~/.config/deluge to /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge but rig...

Re: migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

ok. After leaving it for a while and coming back to it. I had another go at following the guide. This time I have no errors and my system isn't broken (I must have got something right somehow lol) However... I STILL don't know how to make the deluged daemon "find" my torrent states from th...

migrating regular install to a headless install on Ubuntu 16.04.2

I had deluge installed and running with configuration/torrent state data in my user's home folder as a stand alone application (installed via sudo apt install deluge), but now I want to convert to headless install (under /usr/bin) running as a systemd service with access through the deluge-web GUI. ...
