Updating transmission on mint 9

Recommended Posts

So how do I update this package? I don't care about the rest of the system just this one package. I'd prefer to stay with packages rather than compile the source myself, since this box is supposed to be an appliance managed from a web browser. Keeping it up to date is as simple as hitting go in a vnc window or ssh session.

Simplest method is to use a PPA (extra repo with updated packages). I usually install Ubuntu Tweak (Mint is based on Ubuntu), and use it's tools to add the repo. It includes a list of PPA's you can enable, and can select to use just the Transmission one, and update it that way. Easiest and safest way in my experience.

 

Hope this helps.
