I've decided to use this to improve my C and AutoTools skills. I'm almost at a point where I can start testing.

Autotools check are used to make it easy for people to disable the integration. This should make the patch easier to submit upstream.

It should work now! The working version is in lp:~qense/ubuntu/lucid/transmission/fix-497882 but since the branch contained an older version and not the newer version that is in the repositories I'll need to do some tricks for getting a patch.

Attaching a patch for Transmission 1.83. The changes to debian/patches/99_autoreconf.patch are not included.

This time with nicer passing of the icon.
You will still see that the icon doesn't exist. This is because it's looking for 'transmission-tray-icon'. which is defined as the TRAY_ICON in transmission/gtk/actions.h

This is fixed in the upstream trunk -- -- and the bug was added to the 1.90 milestone. I don't think there is need to include the patch, we could just wait until the new version is released.

Thanks for your work there. I'm going to backport the patch from trunk and upload it after dinner as we might not get a 1.90 release before feature freeze, so I'd rather get this in now

After chatting with charles on #transmission, we're going to wait for the 1.90 release, which should happen before FF now:

<charles> one of the popular trackers currently has a ban on 1.8x because they don't like some of its behavior. Yesterday I sent them a test build from trunk to see if it's resolved
<charles> I'm pretty sure it's
<chrisccoulson> charles - thanks, i wasn't aware of that
<charles> so the Transmission developers were wondering, let's say yesterday's trunk build passes the sniff test and gets unbanned
<charles> at that point we would need to decide what to do for the next release
<charles> it might be less risky to just jump to 1.90 and put 1.8x in the past
<chrisccoulson> yeah, possibly. there are a lot of commits there
<charles> also we've discussed what we want to put on the table for 1.90. after the massive birthing pains of the 140-ticket 1.80, nobody voted for a long list of features in 1.90.
<charles> if we get word back from that tracker that the test app works, my vote would be to freeze the code base for 1.90
<charles> chrisccoulson: if 10.04's freeze is 1.5 weeks away, that makes it an even clearer choice IMO
<chrisccoulson> charles - yeah, that sounds good to me
