Need help with Ubuntu + Transmission

Ok, so I installed Ubuntu in Windows and now am facing a slight problem with Transmission (the BitTorrent client which is standard in Ubuntu)

The problem is that after restarting the computer, and logging back into Ubuntu, I open Transmission and it is unable to retrieve the preferences and settings of Transmission,
"Couldn't get information for file "/home/ramesh/.transmission/stats.benc" No such file or directory". I have no idea how to get around this...

Also, I get another problem where Transmission was unable to write to the download directory, "Couldn't create directory /media/Music + Misc"

Anyone that's good with Linux/Ubuntu willing to help me? :)

Thanks.

Sounds like a permissions problem to me, try running it in su (admin) mode (Alt+F2, then type "gksudo transmission-gtk" in the box that pops up).

Failing that, seek and ye shall find:

Azureus works fine in ubuntu and is better than transmission imo, open the synaptic package manager (in system->administration) and search for it to install ;-)

By the way, you say you installed it in windows - did you create dedicated linux partitions?

I've used Azureus before, and I admit it is much better, but I thought it would be easier to use the torrent client already given in Hardy Heron. And no, I didn't create a partition, I just installed it on my secondary hard drive and chose to create a folder 15GB large for Ubuntu.

Remember the software thats on the CD is often not the best - its there so it will all fit on a CD... Nearly everything has alternatives available for a simple install by searching in synaptic. One of Ubuntu's strongest points is the ease by which extra software packages can be installed... :thumbsup:
