Change transmission daemon user

  • Hi all,

    I'm creating an script that executes on torrent completion that needs root permissions, but I dont want to "give debian-transmission" user, that is the owner of the service, root privileges. I have tried to follow the steps in this article:…nder-debian-and-raspbian/

    But the transmission daemon is still been executed with debian-transmission user. I think that the problem is how openmediavault runs services, there must be a configuration file where OMV overrides the configuration stored in "/etc/init.d/transmission-daemon" and "/lib/systemd/system/transmission-daemon.service".

    Does anyone know how to run this daemon with other oser than debian-transmission in OMV?
