ruTorrent wont download anything


Hey, i just got my quickbox setup, but rutorrent is not working! it wont download anything

This is all that are happening


Did you change the download location and is it a folder that exists? Torrents that sit like that are usually due to permissions issues.


Yup, i setted the download folder, and it exists.


Is it the default ~/torrents/rtorrent or another folder? If it is an alternate folder, is it owned by your rtorrent user?

Also, is there an off chance that you added the torrent in a paused state?


It’s an alernate folder inside my home folder, i guess so? Is there a command where i can change all my file permissions to read write?

I just add them like i would do.


did you use quota when you installed ?
if yes did you use set disk to give user space?


I dont have quota installed


you could try fixhome to see if that fixes it


it says i dont have permission to change file permission when i try fixhome


sudo su then fixhome


Dosen’t work


I think fixhome would work if my account was sudo, is there a command to add my user to that group?


are you on the main account?


yep i am :slight_smile:


well sudo su will make u run as root
then you can run any command you feel need for.


yep i know, but the fixhome command signs into my frodo acc, and tries but my frodo acc doesnt have the permissions to change file permissions

Checking frodo’s directory and file permissions …
Logging in as frodo and adjusting permissions …
[Task Complete]


try logging in ssh with root


not working either


where is the fixhome script located?
