Starting deluge on launch from a raspberry pi and connecting remotely

Post by secondubly »

Hi all, I'm following this guide: https://deluge.readthedocs.io/en/latest ... rvice.html to start deluge on boot with my raspberry pi, but for some reason it appears to not be working properly. Running

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl start deluged
doesn't appear to start the service as I cannot connect through a remote machine or even on the Pi itself. I am attempting to start it as the "pi" user and not the created deluge user, but I haven't added them to the user.conf file - I'm not entirely sure if having more than one user in that file is allowed and I couldn't find any examples or information on how the file is setup so I'm not sure if that's the cause of my problems. However, I have added the pi user to the deluge group, but according to the guide that only allows manage access to files and not to the system startup service itself? If necessary, this is my deluged.service file:

Code: Select all

[Unit]
Description=Deluge Bittorrent Client Daemon
Documentation=man:deluged
After=network-online.target

[Service]
Type=simple
UMask=007

ExecStart=/usr/bin/deluged -d -l /var/log/deluge/daemon.log -L warning --logrotate

Restart=on-failure

# Time to wait before forcefully stopped.
TimeoutStopSec=300

[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
And deluge is installed within that default directory as seen here:

Code: Select all

pi@raspberry:~ $ which deluged
/usr/bin/deluged

What happens if you run this command manually:

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/deluged -d -l /var/log/deluge/daemon.log -L warning --logrotate
Also you don't have user or group in the service command.
