I use transmission on an ubuntu 10.10 nettop running the dropbox client. With transmission I watch a dropbox folder to which I add torrents on another computer. The syncing works great, and transmission pretty quickly finds the new file.

But transmission doesn't begin download. Instead, I have to acknowledge the new torrent by clicking add. Then download begins and everything is great.

Can I download without clicking add? It seems that I have every "automatic" option selected. Is there some setting file I need to alter? Thanks!

Uncheck Show Options checkbox & It will autostart without prompting you.
