transmission-daemon broken if transmission is not installed
transmission-daemon can be used without GUI, But if you install transmission-daemon (and, optionally, transmission-cli) packages, transmission daemon just won’t start with init script:
# /etc/init.d/transmission-daemon start * Starting transmission-daemon * start-stop-daemon: user 'transmission' not found * ERROR: transmission-daemon failed to start
The problem is in missing transmission user and /var/lib/transmission directory owned by that user.
You can get both of these by installing transmission package.
