Right so the service setup is fine. Reviewing you prior message you mentioned previously you added the user pi in auth
Please copy the output of

Code: Select all

 sudo cat /var/lib/deluge/.config/deluge/auth


Modifying the auth file is intended for Web access, not deluge-console straight from the server on ssh (or terminal). So this file should contain a first line with localclient ID. When you renamed the .config/deluge the auth file was generated again. Even without modifying it to add the Pi user you should be able to do the "sudo bash" and "sudo -u deluge deluge-console" (see my previous post). The pi user in auth is not related to the user of the Linux system, you can choose anything (maybe the source of confusion)

pi:(current linux user password, non-hashed):10


Also, interesting about the user in auth not being related to the linux system user. I didn't know that! I also don't really understand what that means, ramifications-wise, but I guess that doesn't matter at the moment.

The users in auth are for remote connections, web or gtk in non classical mode (client-server). As I don't want to expose a local user with sudo privilege in a clear text file I use another (not defined in linux so).

So here you know how to rename the profile and restart the service. Are you able to use deluge-console with a fresh profile? (best to get rid of any change)

Code: Select all

sudo bash
cd /var/lib/deluge/.config/
systemctl stop deluged deluge-web
mv deluge deluge.old
systemctl start deluged deluge-web
sudo -u deluge deluge-console  #you are already root here


Don't change the auth or anything else, the deluge-console should work now. If yes, enable the remote access and add a new user (e.g. Jhon but not pi) to auth file. Remote access id fine? Cool, copy the .config/deluge.old/state content in the new ./config/deluge/state if you want to re-add any seeding torrent :)
