Thank-you for the reply. I appreciate the feedback. Hope you are enjoying the Holiday Season. As I said I am not very familiar with Linux. I used XFCE 3.1 version on USB stick and I downloaded Transmission (more recent than what is in Porteus) through USM. It downloaded three programs - couldn't fig...

Problem with Transmission in 3.1 XFCE & LXQT

I have been using Porteus for some time now on USB pen drive. In 3.0 I was able to use Transmission without any problem. I installed two versions (above) of 3.1 and when I try to connect with a link I get a return that "connection to tracker failed". The same download with Transmission on my backup ...
