    For checkinstall, you probably want to do something like this.
    Code:
    sudo checkinstall -D --fstrans=yes \
    --pkgname=transmission --backup=no --deldoc=yes --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes  --default \
    --provides=transmission-cli,transmission-daemon,transmission-common,transmission-gtk \
    --pkgversion='`grep "LONG_VERSION_STRING" libtransmission/version.h | cut -d"\"" -f2 | cut -d" " -f1`'

    What is the difference? Andrew.46's solution works fine for me .

    Hi Longinus00,

    Thanks for your suggestions. Two small points though:

    Code:
    checkinstall -D
    This is given as a default in Ubuntu, have a look in /etc/checkinstallrc, so does not normally need to be given. The other point:

    Code:
    --fstrans=yes
    I believe in Karmic Koala this option is still broken and by default, again in /etc/checkinstallrc, this is turned off. The newest version of checkinstall has apparently solved this old problem but I will admit I have not tested this yet.

    Thanks for your trouble,

    Andrew

    Another successful install this time on 9.04 headless box with Transmission 1.90. One small suggestion being a novice *nix user I had to look up some of the commands I was using before I actually used them on my system (not that I didn't trust it, but just for my knowledge). If you have time you may want to add a brief description before each command. If not no big deal. Thanks again!!

    Glad the guide has proved helpful to you . I shall update to 1.90 this weekend, I had not realised that a new version had arrived! When I do this I shall do as you have suggested and add a few explanatory notes...

    All the best,

    Andrew

    Thanks for getting back to me. I'm playing around with a lot of the new features on here and getting more comfortable with the application. Since 1.8.0 was released, lots of things have changed with the way the application is configured and run. If anyone is interested I would be willing to put together some knowledge base on getting Transmission 1.8.0+ configured on a headless ubuntu server (or for anyone who wants to take advantage of the web interface). If anyone here has yet to upgrade their version of Transmission, I highly suggest using version 1.90 (which works perfectly with andrew.46's tutorial) , as it has a ton of new features and has also fixed bugs that were causing bans on the 1.80 software from many private torrent sites.

    I for one would be keen to see such information. I am building a headless server shortly and certainly using transmission in this way would be very new to me. BTW you may have noticed a new notification system is now possible for Transmission with support for libappindicator. I have not added this in but looks like the required libraries for Karmic can be found here. I suspect I will wait for Lucid before experimenting myself and I see that the Lucid repository version will have this support built in.

    Thank you andrew.46! I followed your guide on Ubuntu 9.10, and it worked perfectly! Now I have the latest version, much appreciated.
