    Hello.

    Thank you for your effort creating the nice tutorial.
    If I may add, could you please add another way for installing Transmission just for web based only. Mostly, many people using Transmission to gain smallest foot print of the computer resource, like me.

    I try your instruction, with small adjustment to disabling the gtk and other gui which I don't need them. I just want my headless Transmission, accessing from any browser, however, I failed. Some parameter like --disable-gtk isn't working after ./configure

    Any suggestion would be appreciate..

    Another thing, if you don't mind I am being little bit greedy, can you add another way like performing upgrade, rather than new compiling. Many peoples will use the old one and like to upgrade. However, you haven't write the "upgrade" tutorial. Just my though.

    Thanks.

    Looks like what you are after may very well be:

    Code:
    ./configure --without-gtk
    Perhaps look at rtorrent for a truly light client?

    I guess I could add a note concerning this, although since it is a wiki you could do this yourself . No escaping the recompiling of Transmission itself though...

    Thanks very much for your thoughts and questions regarding this wiki page!
