    same here. tried complete uninstall/reinstall and played with users/rights - no luck.

    Code:
    Setting up transmission-daemon (2.93-1ubuntu1~16.04.1ubuntu1) ...
    Job for transmission-daemon.service failed because a timeout was exceeded. See "systemctl status transmission-daemon.service" and "journalctl -xe" for details.
    invoke-rc.d: initscript transmission-daemon, action "start" failed.

    it takes around one minute before this error (timeout), while rpc is working during this period and you can connect to daemon from outside and see existing torrents. and then it just stops.

    Here is temporary solution from other thread https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2386355 (direct link https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread....9#post13745879)


    1. build your own from source and do not forget to install libsystemd-dev before building.
    2. wait for the PPA maintainer to do the above and build a new version.
    3. change the type in /etc/systemd/system/transmission-daemon.service from "notify" to "simple"


    By Talz1979

    Third one seems the simpliest and works for me.

    Did you ever try for "transmission-daemon 2.93"
    To creatting this file:
    Code:
    /etc/systemd/system/transmission-daemon.service.d/override.conf
    with this content:
    Code:
    [Service]
    User=
    Type=
    Type=simple
    User=debian-transmission
    Group=debian-transmission
    reload systemd config:
    Code:
    systemctl daemon-reload
    and execute:
    Code:
    systemctl start transmission-daemon.service

    @1fallen

    It kinda helped ! I can start transmission and see green status, but can not login. Not as my original user not as debian-transmission user. Although maybe I need to setup transmission user again ?!

    Thanks for looking !

    Well let's have a peek at:
    Code:
    nano /etc/systemd/system/transmission-daemon.service.d/override.conf
    paste back here please
