New Startup Entry?
« on: April 25, 2010, 09:48:23 pm »
I've written a script to run uTorrent through wine on my system:


wine /mnt/device/61/uTorrent/utorrent-startup

Granted it's pretty simple; but when I ssh with x11 enabled (ssh -X) and log in as linuxmce it works perfectly.
So I wanted it to start up without KDE (unlike in the linuxMCE Bittorrent Guide) so I went in to
/usr/pluto/bin/ and added StartService "uTorrent" "/usr/pluto/bin/"
But it never runs (I Know because I can't access the webUI that uTorrent hosts when I run it through ssh)
Am I doing anything wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I think using Transmission is much more efficient way to add torrent client to the LinuxMCE. It has native Linux application, web interface and even offers remote GUI. Works perfectly on my D-Link DNS-321 NAS.

BTW if you'd like to start some script/app during boot of LinuxMCE just add it into /etc/rc.local
