Filed under: Linux — acidborg @ 21:00

Description: I’m going to explain how to automatically download your favourite TV shows using showRSS, Transmission and Flexget.

Steps:

  1. Register at showRSS and add your favourite TV series.
  2. Go to the “feeds” section and generate your feed address.
  3. Download the latest transmission-common and transmission-gtk packages from here.
  4. Install them: sudo dpkg -i transmission*.deb
  5. Modify $HOME/.config/transmission/settings.json with the following values:
    "watch-dir": "\/home\/your_user\/Downloads",
    "watch-dir-enabled": true
  6. Go to flexget‘s web and download it.
  7. Install it: sudo easy_install FlexGet*.egg
  8. Edit flexget’s config file: vi $HOME/.flexget/config.yml
    flex's config.yml content
  9. Initialize flexget: flexget --initdb
  10. Edit your crontab to check your feed every hour: crontab -e
    0 * * * * /usr/local/bin/flexget
