Use tooltip to notify user of added torrent

Bug #217171 reported by JD on 2008-04-14
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
transmission (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: transmission

When I double-click a torrent file while Transmission is running in the notification area, the torrent is added. However to the average user nothing happened, Transmission should notify you when a torrent is added - preferably with a tooltip.

Ubuntu 8.04 (Latest Updates)

Please, try again with Hardy final release

This bug only occurs when the option to "Prompt for directory" is disabled. Nonetheless, a tooltip would be appropriate for this situation.

Yes the problem still exists in *buntu 9.04 jaunty with latest updates.

Like Nanly Chery said, it only happens when Prompt for Directory is disabled.
