It seems I may have left something out when I published the stuff about rtorrent + rutorrent the other day, and that’s the fact if you’re running this in the headless configuration I am, you need to run it as a service. So…here’s what you need to do.
These instructions are actually verbatim from the rtorrent wiki. All I can really add is while they list 16.04..it’s systemd and works just fine with 18.04
sudo apt-get install tmux
Install tmux. After that, you need to create /etc/systemd/system/rtorrent.service
[Unit] Description=rtorrent (in tmux) [Service] Type=oneshot RemainAfterExit=yes User=YOUR_USER_ID_WHICH_RUNS_RTORRENT_GOES_HERE ExecStart=/usr/bin/tmux -2 new-session -d -s rtorrent rtorrent ExecStop=/usr/bin/tmux kill-session -t rtorrent [Install] WantedBy=default.target
Then enable the service and start it up.
sudo systemctl enable rtorrent.service sudo systemctl start rtorrent.service
