Where does it place the file?

Asked by Ken Pratt on 2010-04-17

Binary package hint: transmission

Fresh install of Lucid. Went to Ubuntu to download the Beta 2 AMD64 desktop image. Transmission downloaded it successfully and is now seeding. However, the file is nowhere to be found! The default is $HOME/Downloads. My Downloads folder is completely empty. A search of my directory using 'find $HOME -name "ubuntu-10.04*iso"' yields nothing. So I am seeding a phantom file...

Thank you for taking the time to report this issue and helping to make Ubuntu better. Examining the information you have given us, this does not appear to be a bug report so we are closing it and converting it to a question in the support tracker. We appreciate the difficulties you are facing, but it would make more sense to raise problems you are having in the support tracker at https://answers.launchpad.net/ubuntu if you are uncertain if they are bugs.

Hi! Right-click the torrent on the Transmission window and select Open Folder. See where it's saved.

Default is to save it to $HOME. If you follow what zszoet says it will appear, you could also use:

sudo find / -iname "*.iso"

which will find the file no matter where it's hiding.

If you double-click the torrent in the main window, the Details dialog will pop up showing the "Information" tab. In that tab, the torrent's location on the disk is shown as "Location:"

Can you help with this problem?
