I think this ticket has been fixed in macports since.

Thanks to work by carbncl he has created a standalone Deluge.app for 10.6 & 10.7. Please can you help by testing the latest version and report back to him.

Deluge.app build using GTK-OSX

I have an intel iMac i386 so I can't use the app available thanks to carbncl. Therefore i tried Deluge with old faithful Macports again tonight. I have used this method before and everything has worked great, however after a successful install using:

Code: Select all

sudo port install boost +python27 gtk2 +no_x11+quartz deluge

there seems to be something wrong with the permissions. If I select to download a file to an external harddrive or even my torrent folder on the internal hdd somehow the download defaults to my home folder /Users/k. The same error happens when I try to set upp autoadd. The watched folder changes to /Users/k. I can browse all my hdds and folders with the Deluge filemanager but the settings don't stick.

Anyone know what the problem can be? I ran deluge with the debug setting enabled but that did not show anything. My download settings just won't stick, no warnings. All other settings works as they should and sticks, the problem is to access another folder than /Users/k. :(

Thanks for any help

EDIT solved it by using the i386 build of Deluge.app and made all the settings through that gui. The deluged daemon from macports works together with Deluge.app. Guess this workaround will work for now. :D I still have no idea why the gui from macports don't work properly though :?
