[SOLVED] Remote files of transmission doesn't exist

Hi.

I m using the transmission for bitTorrent client and  i thought to use the remote web interface that comes with it.
Im going to preferences and configure it. Then i click on "Open Web Client" and chromium returns this :

404: Not Found

Couldn't find Transmission's web interface files!

Users: to tell Transmission where to look, set the TRANSMISSION_WEB_HOME environment variable to the folder where the web interface's index.html is located.

Package Builders: to set a custom default at compile time, #define PACKAGE_DATA_DIR in libtransmission/platform.c or tweak tr_getClutchDir () by hand.

How can i fix it ? Where the web files of transmission should be saved ?

Thanks!

Re: [SOLVED] Remote files of transmission doesn't exist

Hi
I have the web files in /usr/share/transmission/
what is the output of this?

$ whereis transmission

because i get 

$ whereis transmission
transmission : /usr/share/transmission 

and is where the web files are located

$ ls /usr/share/transmission/
 web
$ ls /usr/share/transmission/web
images index.html  javascript LICENSE style

it's a compile trouble or maybe you have deleted that folder . You have compiled transmission?

Re: [SOLVED] Remote files of transmission doesn't exist

whereis transmission 

returns nothing

whereis transmission-gtk 

returns

transmission-gtk: /usr/bin/transmission-gtk /usr/share/man/man1/transmission-gtk.1.gz

I installed transmission using pacman.

ah. I guess you don't have installed transmission-cli.

install it and try again

pacman -S  transmission-cli

I had this problem and just found this solution here. Have added it to the wiki at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Transmission.
