When I installed transmission, I've seen here that I need to change the ownership of some groups to able this to work with my raspberry pi. First of all: why does transmission adds a new user to the system? I tried to set the downloads folder of transmission to my USB flash drive but I get a permission error. So I need to change who owns the folder of the pen drive, rigth? But who owns it? I just plugged my pen drive, I've never set nobody to own it.
Also, why he calls it "debian-transmission group". Isn't debian-transmission an user?
THe tutorial is basically saying I need to change the ownership of /media/MyPenDrive to the debian transmission user?
Then he says:
grant write access to the group
sudo chmod 770 /home/chen/TV\ shows
Isn't the group "debian-transmission"? Why is he granting write access to the folder? When he grants access to a folder, he grants access to everybody who owns it? Shouldn't I be able to give different permissions to different users who can access the folder?
