TRANSMISSION-GTK(1)                                         BSD General Commands Manual                                        TRANSMISSION-GTK(1)

transmission-gtk -- a bittorrent client SYNOPSIS
transmission-gtk -? transmission-gtk [-pqm] [torrent-file ...] DESCRIPTION
transmission-gtk is a fast and easy BitTorrent client. BitTorrent is a peer-to-peer file transfer protocol which uses a metainfo file (usually with the .torrent file extension) and a central tracker to distribute file data amongst a group of peers. For more information on the BitTorrent protocol see OPTIONS
-? --help Show help options -p --paused Start with all torrents paused -m --minimized Start minimized in notification area -g, --config-dir directory Where to look for configuration files. This can be used to swap between using the cli, daemon, gtk, and qt clients. See for more information. Multiple .torrent files may be added at startup by appending them on the command line. If transmission-gtk is already running, the torrents will be added to the running instance. ENVIRONMENT
TRANSMISSION_HOME Sets the default config-dir. http_proxy libcurl uses this environment variable when performing tracker announces. If set, this overrides the GNOME proxy preferences. FILES
~/.config/transmission The config-dir used when neither [TRANSMISSION_HOME] nor [-g] is specified. AUTHORS
transmission-gtk was written by Jordan Lee, Josh Elsasser, Eric Petit, and Mitchell Livingston. SEE ALSO
